Creating brighter futures for the children of Lynedoch Valley

We believe that every child in the Lynedoch Valley has the right to receive the best possible education that will help them realise their full potential. Acknowledging that each child is unique and learns differently, we strive to leave no child behind and support each child where they are at.

Annually we support more than 160 children from Lynedoch Valley with full scholarships to access high quality education best suited to their needs. This includes a number of our valley children who attend our own beautiful small Montessori primary school that we started in January 2020. Here, we extend our Montessori learning to provide children aged 6 – 12 with the opportunity to flourish through a diversity of learning experiences.

Our support further includes transport, nutrition, sports and the creative arts, and a holistic socio-emotional and academic support programme to children, and their families, through our partnership with Community Keepers and our own Student Development Unit. Our children are supported academically, socially and emotionally as best as possible thanks to the support of long-term funders and partners.

Bright futures start with quality, relevant education and support. We remain dedicated to provide an environment that evokes self-led development and inspires a love for learning.
