The purpose of TheSchoolBus Foundation is to further the advancement of education in England by providing disadvantaged children and young people in mainstream education with opportunities that can make a positive difference to their lives. The foundation will help stretch their capabilities through a range of experiences they may otherwise have missed. TheSchoolBus Foundation will provide assistance through the giving of grants to those bodies recognised by and meeting the criteria set by the charities trustees.
The Foundation is particularly interested in enabling children and young people develop a strong foundation for the future. Projects could, for example, support special educational needs, address behavioural problems or promote citizenship or life skills.
