At Discovery Trust, we pride ourselves in being able to develop and enrich our school sites with improvements to the learning environment
Exciting and attracting learning spaces are essential to inspire our pupils to achieve their potential. We work with the leadership teams and advisory boards to help each school establish a clear vision for their school premises and provide ideas about how this could be developed in the future. As a Trust we are given a schools conditions grant from the ESFA. Our dedicated team of Estate leaders and premises officers work together closely to ensure we can maximise the money we are given to get the great value for money
Here are a few examples of our successes across our schools.
