Rowdown Inspire to Aspire

Partner: The Rowdown Foundation (1)
Partner type: Community Group
Project category: Academic

We work with the Rowdown Foundation to help children fulfil their ambitions in their ‘Inspire to Aspire’ theme.

The Rowdown Foundation was established to provide extra impetus for pupils (in 4 different primary schools from the New Addington area) and help a few of the pupils to have a dream beyond their normal horizons and to fulfil their ambitions.  Working in partnership with parents, the Foundation also seeks to support parental engagement in their child’s education and enhance the wellbeing of their children.

Croydon High School provides specialist tuition over a ten week period. The lessons are challenging and focus on stretching the pupils’ understanding of English, Mathematics and Verbal Reasoning.  By taking part in the programme, it is the aim that it will improve the children’s chance of passing 11+ entrance exams to the required standard for places at grammar or independent schools with the necessary scholarships or bursaries.
