I would like to apply for a grant to support a year 6/7 transition project we are starting between my High School and a Primary school partner. We are both signed up to the GLP, and are starting to work collaboratively on a geography project.
Is this grant still available and if so how do I follow this up

I work with a collaborative group of schools in the South of Liverpool
and would be interested in exploring funding of ?500 grants to support Year 6/7 transition projects - not yet approached our schools directly but as we had a strong GLP group in Liverpool with SFX expert centre last year and we are currently putting together a group led by Bishop Eton Catholic Primary for this year it would fit in very nicely.
I look forward to hearing from you.
