Our Trips Programme For Primary Schools


Apples & Pears gives children under 12 and their families the opportunity to discover inspiring educational, social and cultural activities through awarding grants to organisations who can run or host our group trips programme.

Primary Schools

If you've made it this far, you're potentially interested in supporting our core work with primary schools. As it stands, 11 primary schools receive direct grants from us with another 21 benefiting indirectly from our grants to Community Spaces.

  • As always, 100% of raised funds go to projects and not internal operational costs (these are covered privately). 

  • The grants are used by the schools to run our Trips Programme.

  • Our grants cover transport costs, entry fees and learning materials that support the trips (e.g. activity workbooks, museum headsets). 

  • Family support/parental engagement workers typically run the trips on Saturdays and tailor the groups to tackle a wide range of issues including helping migrants settle into the city, encouraging parents to take a more active role in their children’s education, bringing classroom learning to life through practical experience and encouraging communities to get to know one another.

We'll be looking to award around £25,000 - £30,000 in grants to primary schools in 2018/2019 and would love you support to help us achieve this goal!
