core programmes


100 local schools

have participated in these programmes


schoolchildren take part each year

We run ‘core programmes’ every year on site at Latymer Upper School, where we provide free educational activity programmes for local maintained primary or secondary schools. These are run and delivered by our Latymer staff, and often also run or coached by our Year 9-12 students who volunteer their time, and share their skills. 

The students who participate are those who have been identified by their schools to most benefit from the programmes, especially if they would not have access to these resources and experiences otherwise; would thrive with increased confidence and aspirations; and/or are eligible for Free School Meals. 

There is a wide and exciting range of topics and experiences covered by these different programmes, but across each we are aiming to impact:

  • Fun and enjoyment
  • Social mixing/new friends
  • Confidence
  • Increased aspirations
  • Skills and knowledge
