Oxford Gardens Primary School: GRT Learning Mentor
Over the past year, The Portal Trust has helped to support the GRT (Gypsy, Roma and Traveller) Learning Mentor role at Oxford Gardens Primary School in North Kensington.
Terry King has carried out the role since 2018 and has built a strong relationship with the children, parents and school over the years. We met with Terry to discuss his role and the difference it has made for the children.
Future Frontiers: Career Coaching
Since 2019, The Portal Trust has helped support Future Frontiers to deliver career coaching programmes to over 300 disadvantaged young people from inner London boroughs.
We attended a coaching session in-person and spoke to one of the students, Simi, about her experience on the programme.
Scarabeus Aerial Theatre: Flying Into Physics
In 2021, The Portal Trust awarded £30,000 over three years to Scarabeus Aerial Theatre for their ‘Flying Into Physics’ programme – an exciting science project helping disadvantaged 9-10 year olds learn about physics through aerial theatre.
We visited a session at a primary school in North London to see students flying through the air and learning about gravity, air resistance and friction.
Laptops and Learning: Stepney All Saints Secondary School
In 2021, The Portal Trust awarded a Covid-19 emergency grant of £165,000.00 over three years towards purchasing laptops for pupils at Stepney All Saints School.
