Situation

North Northumberland is the most rural/remote county in England; across an area the same size as Greater London, there is just 1 high school. Students living in villages and remote areas have limited access to youth/community opportunities. Even after school activities are inaccessible due to school bus timetables. Cultural activities are 1-2 hrs away (Newcastle/Edinburgh). In 2020-21 young people's experiences have been even more restricted due to lockdown and social distancing.

Solution

As we recover from the pandemic, it is essential that we provide new experiences and exceptional learning opportunities. Here in north Northumberland, these activities must be provided in school (Duchess's Community High School) to enable access for everyone. The funding we raise through this campaign will complete our £21k for 2021 target and enable us to provide a range of new opportunities during 2022, including clubs, guest musicians, tech projects, sports, creative experiences and more...
