£24,972 to Beyond the Classroom for their Girlhood to Womanhood project. The project supports female pupils from local secondary schools who are struggling to develop confidence and well-being to develop their resilience and leadership skills using the performing arts. Pupils will design and deliver their own theatre production and facilitate workshops for their peers on the issues they view as key to their transition to adulthood.
We have awarded £74,520 over three years to the Mary Dolly Foundation to fund one-to-one counselling for Lambeth resident pupil-premium pupils who are identified as having experienced physical, emotional or sexual abuse or trauma. This will be provided in three Lambeth Primary Schools and the Park Campus Pupil Referral Unit.

WF has part-funded this service for the last two years.
