Education charity Sutton Trust and Impetus trust chosen to manage £125million Education Endowment Fund

The Department for Education has awarded £125 million to the Education charity Sutton Trust as the lead charity in partnership with Impetus Trust to establish a new major programme to boost the attainment of some of the country's most disadvantaged children.

Posted: 05/03/2011

The Education Endowment Fund (EEF) will be used to both initiate grants and seek innovative and bold proposals from schools, teachers, local authorities and charities to improve the performance of poor pupils in the country’s lowest performing schools.

The Sutton Trust is in the process of establishing a new charity to manage the Fund, which will be formally launched in the summer. Selection criteria and information on how to submit an application will not be available until then.

"Just to say a huge thanks ... I am looking forward to progressing with this project thanks to your support, advice and guidance"
