  • 20 state schools involved

*Please note, data shown here is from the 2020 Census for partnerships in 2019, rather than from the 2021 Census. This is due to the impact of COVID-19 on full year collection for 2021. The coronavirus pandemic has forced many schools to put some partnership projects on hold until restrictions are eased.

Impact Statement

Confidence Club is a 4-week programme which focuses on building confidence in girls through Drama, Art, English and History.
“Confidence Club at Croydon High has been an invaluable experience for my daughter and I have loved hearing about what she has learnt and how much fun she has had each week. The club has really helped empower her and her confidence had grown immensely.” Parent

We run a Creative Writing event for Year 2 children every February, promoted heavily to the local state schools and a significant number from schools in a particularly financially disadvantaged locality. The feedback has been really positive including this from one parent:

“ Just wanted to thank the CHS team for a fabulous workshop. My daughter is what you’d call a ‘reluctant’ writer, yet she came home very animated and excited. She’d had a wonderful afternoon and was asking if there would be another. Thank you so much for inviting her.” Parent
