Ambitious about Autism

I’m writing to you today to express our thanks for your support by your grant last year for our new Smartboard.

Saffron Hall

Saffron Hall used the grant towards its ‘Big Sing’ project – an initiative designed to get large numbers of children and young people singing together. There is a further aim of the project which is supporting the provision and quality of music and singing teaching in schools.

The sessions were all presented by the acclaimed music leader Dominic Peckham. He established good communication with the teachers, giving them confidence in their own abilities, as well as additional skills and ideas to take back to the classroom. Ultimately, it’s clear that this sort of singing project can have a major impact on young people. We are hugely grateful for the support of the Charles S French Charitable Trust.


The Smallpeice Trust has received a very generous donation from The Charles S French Charitable Trust which has enabled them to support the Girls into Physics Project STEM Physics Enrichment Days for state schools in London.

Team Up

Team Up wishes to thank The Charles S French Trust for their generous donation. We are deeply grateful for your support. The principal objectives of our programme were to meaningfully increase the academic attainment, attitudes and aspirations, as well as improve the life chances of secondary school pupils from low income backgrounds, using inspirational volunteers to tutor them in English or maths. As a result, our tutors gain useful teaching and leadership experience and develop transferable skills, and our pupils benefit from the direct positive impact of all this hard work, improving their attitudes and prospects.
