The School Explorer Fund is open to all state primary schools and special schools based in the Charity’s Beneficial Area. Grants awarded under this Fund are available to assist schools in accessing and taking part in Arts activities at the many high class cultural institutions in London.
The School Explorer Fund
Applications to the School Explorer Fund can be made for visits to the theatre, musical activities or trips to a museum or art gallery. To be eligible, you must provide a clear rationale for the activity, explain how it will add value to the school experience and demonstrate an existing commitment to the Arts.
There is no restriction on which institution you can visit, but the activity must enhance the current activities of the class or year group and be the kind of experience that the children do not normally have access to.
Applications can be made for up to £2,000. There is no deadline for this fund. Applications are considered on a rolling basis, at least six times per year. To apply, complete an online application form using our Grants Portal now. If it is your first online application to the Charity, you will need to create a new login.
