Friends of the School

Who we are...

The principal aim of the Friends of the School of Education is to promote and support the educational achievement of young people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

It is also an opportunity for alumni of the School of Education, education professionals and members of the public to keep up to date with news and events from the School of Education.

Here are just a few projects we have received funding for over the years. Our members will be able to support similar projects in the future.

Experiencing Large Numbers Project - Hedgehogs

Everybody Counts:

Supporting children with early mathematics

Experiencing Large Numbers:

You may recall 10,000 hedgehogs descending on New Walk Museum!

The Letter Box Club:

Inspiring a love of reading and engagement with numeracy in children who are looked-after.
