Foyle Foundation Grant

Foyle Foundation Grant


We are delighted to announce that Victoria School has been successful in receiving a £7000 grant, which can be used towards the purchase of teaching resources and books.


We have already identified that we will be using the funds to purchase additional Little Wandle Revised books to match our reading scheme in school. The remaining funding will also further support the development of our library resources and our reading for pleasure books. 


The Foyle Foundation is an independent grantmaking trust that distributes grants to UK charities. Since it became operational in November 2001, The Foundation has disbursed £115.1M in grants (up to 31st December 2020). 

The Foundation will support projects which facilitate the acquisition of knowledge and learning and which have a long-term strategic impact.  Key areas for support are:

  • libraries, museums and archives; 
  • special educational needs;
  • projects that encourage sustainability by reducing overheads or which help generate additional revenue.  This might include environmental improvements to save energy and lower carbon emissions where a cost benefit can be demonstrated;
  • projects and activities which increase access and widen the diversity of attenders/visitors.
