The aims of TheSchoolBus Foundation are to advance the education of disadvantaged children and young people by providing grants where either self help or resources from the education system have proved insufficient.
The trustees of TheSchoolBus Foundation recognise individuals as disadvantaged whose circumstances (whether financial, emotional, physical, or through lack of time or support) limit the chances to access the opportunities available to help develop their education.
By supporting charities and other organisations who work with and support disadvantaged children and young people in mainstream education the trustees would like to:
- Encourage the education (including social and physical training) of individuals up to the age of 18 years in such manner as the trustees think fit, including, but not limited to, by way of subsidising any travel expenses in furtherance of education, including the study of music or other arts
- Advance education in areas of social deprivation by providing grants to enable community to advance education opportunities in that area
- Advance the education of gifted pupils by providing grants for the provision of facilities not required to be provided by the local education authority for education at a school, academy or other recognised educational establishment to assist such pupils in maximising their potential
