Grant Writing Service

Education Services Nottingham has linked with School Business Partner to offer a Grant and Bid Writing Service for Schools.

Generate Additional Funding for Your School

Working with School Business Partner (on an Institute of Physics application) was an absolutely pleasure. Through regular communication, Andrew was able to share his expertise around successfully obtaining grants, as well as tailor the application to the school's context and needs. Not only this, but real thought was given to how data would be collected in order to evidence the impact of the grant to a range of stakeholders. It was no surprise to the school when we heard that we'd received funds needed to run a Physics Enrichment week - all thanks to Andrew's hard work.”

School Business Partner offer the following:-

  • Research to identify charities, foundations and governmental sources of grants to support your specific projects/needs
  • Professional bid writing, with associated research and user focus groups
  • Completion of monitoring returns (where bids are successful) where required

Every year charitable foundations and government departments offer thousands of £ in grants which schools could benefit from. Covering anything from the purchase of musical instruments/recording equipment through to funding for STEM activities.

Many schools struggle to find the capacity to identify funding opportunities and even when they do the time to complete the application forms is overtaken by other priorities.

School Business Partner is offering Nottingham Schools a 5% reduction on its normal charge rate for this service.
