In September 2014, the Big Creative Academy, a groundbreaking school for 16 to 19 year olds, was launched to promote excellence in creativity, music and media. "Our intention is to deliver an academy that 're-imagines education' for the twenty-first century; one that will be regarded by young people, parents and employers as one of the leading providers in London". Located in East London, the academy provides an exciting new opportunity for some of the most disadvantaged communities in the country, while attracting students from across the capital, eager to access a curriculum dedicated to education and vocational training in digital media, music technology, event management, performing arts and fashion design. Funded by the government as part of the Free School policy, the Big Creative Academy is be free to attend and will be inspected by OFSTED, under the Common Inspection Framework. The academy will have capacity for 400 learners, with ambitious plans to expand over the next five years to reflect the changes and economic priorities for the sector. It will support the development of exciting industry projects and work with live briefs to prepare students for careers in their chosen sector. An established network of senior executives from high profile companies such as ITN, Universal Music, Barcroft Media, MTV and Industry in the Streets will also serve as ambassadors. Robin Elias, Managing Editor, ITV News, said: "The academy has introduced us to a previously untapped pool of enthusiastic and skilled talent. We've met a group of young people with a passion for media, coupled with technical know-how. They are focused, multi-skilled and totally at ease with the landscape of modern media. At ITN we want to open our doors and give opportunity to talent like this. The academy helped make that possible". The Big Creative Academy will champion well-being as a core part of the curriculum and embed enterprise at the heart of the organisation to help launch hundreds of successful businesses and careers. The move is part of an overarching plan to contribute to London's vibrant cultural scene as well as contribute to the economic growth of a sector that accounts for one in five jobs in London and is worth 81 billion. With the backing of the industry, sponsorship and the educational expertise of the team, the Big Creative Academy will cultivate an inspirational learning environment to produce motivated, work-ready young people, ready to progress directly into apprenticeships, HE, employment and enterprise in London's creative and cultural economy.

The Mahmoodiah Trust has been set up exclusively to raise funds to establish The Mahmoodiah Academy of Excellence, a secondary school for young females in a deprived area of the Punjab province in Pakistan. The institution will initially cater for a hundred students and provide an exemplary education. This is a grassroots development programme and its success relies on the co-operation and support of dedicated, passionate and committed individuals and organisations willing to share their skills and expertise as well as sacrifice their time. Training centres will be founded to offer teacher training to local females. Whereas it is hoped that the educational establishment will be a beacon which other schools may follow and to which they may aspire, it is also hoped that the entire project will benefit the community and country at large with regard to local investment, business and the economy. In a country which has long neglected the education of its citizens, especially girls, this project may be the only chance for many to gain a quality education and broaden the understanding of the world in which they live - and ultimately enhance their prospects for the future. With a team of dedicated volunteers who have amongst them a background in business, education and international development, The Mahmoodiah Trust is confident that with support and investment from related organisations, this project could eventually broaden its horizons and invest in other educational establishments in other developing countries.

"Please help the Stirling School of English to continue to offer free English Language teaching". The Stirling School of English is looking for a sponsor with an interest in increasing global understanding. The school offers free English tuition to non-English speakers. It has currently more than two hundred students from over thirty countries being taught by about twenty-five qualified volunteers in thirty different classes each week. It caters for students of all ranges of proficiency in the language, beginners to advanced. These students are here either working or studying and every part of the globe is represented in the school. The school, however, does more than teach language skills. It also helps students integrate into the community and provides social activities to reduce a sense of isolation. Uniquely amongst teaching institutions, students can join at any time during the year, so they can begin to learn the language as soon as they arrive in the area. This is particularly important in helping people integrate into the community. The school also links to employers seeking to improve the language skills of their migrant workers. "Sponsorship would enable us to maintain our free service, but also expand our activities (eg extending crèche facilities to enable more working mothers to attend), improve our premises and our training of volunteers. It would also help us commission the design of teaching materials as well as purchase computer equipment to facilitate modern learning methods. Above all, it would help produce financial stability and relieve the school from reliance on a variable grant regime, as well as enabling it to develop as a social enterprise and allow it to generate income. Sponsors would be welcome to get involved as consultants to put together a professional business plan and help the school develop in creative ways and sustain its activities into the future".

Take 2 Theatre School is a South Yorkshire based theatre school offering children and young people the opportunity to gain confidence and develop their skills through performing arts. "Our groups are aged from 3 to 19 and we have workshops in dance, drama and musical theatre. We are seeking sponsors to help with the costs of putting on shows at the theatre, hiring costumes and musicians and the costs of publicity for the productions, eg posters, leaflets, T Shirts. We charge minimal fees to our members as we want everyone in the community to be able to afford to access our sessions; but this means there are few funds left to pay for the costs involved in putting on a show".

Torquay Girls' Grammar School's current gym is a testament to the builders of the day. "Unfortunately that day was in 1939 and the single badminton court-sized gym can only be described as small and sad. It was designed to be used by only 120 girls, some of whom, on returning after more than half a century, recognise the same wall bars and ropes as either old friends or instruments of torture. The gym cannot cope with the sporting demands of our 860 girls. Parts of it are crumbling, parts of it are mouldy, parts of it are absent (no showers) and all parts are smelly. This is hardly surprising after seventy-two years of loyal service. We have the site, the plans and the planning pre-application for a four badminton court Sports Hall, with fitness suite, classroom and amenities. We hope to raise 100,000 to support a bid to the Department of Education. I am sure you are aware that there were no women shortlisted for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year recently! This was despite many worthy female candidates who had arguably achieved greater feats than some candidates listed. Chrissie Wellington, four times world champion tri-athlete, is a deserving example. Our girls are rightly outraged by this turn of events, so I have encouraged them to respond by becoming either (i) the future editor of a publication entitled to vote for the award; or (ii) a world champion sportswoman that they cannot ignore. I know we can give our girls the motivation, the skills and the guidance to fulfil either of these ambitions. Unfortunately, as our flyer clearly shows, we cannot provide them with the facilities to become champion sportswomen. We desperately need a Sports Hall - and feel the fact that we do not have one is an extension of the discrimination highlighted by the Award. Your sponsorship would support our efforts to enable girls to improve their fitness, participate in sport and perhaps have the chance to become future world champions. These girls will become tommorow's leaders and your sponsorship would resonate in their minds". Contact: Dr Nicholas Smith, Headteacher. Address: 30 Shiphay Lane, Shiphay, Torquay TQ2 7DY.

"We are looking for a sponsor. The Alan Winner Academy was established in 1985. It is a sports academy teaching the discipline of Chinese Martial Art with classes from Monday to Friday 4.00pm to 10.00pm for all ages. It currently has about a hundred students. Given the number of years, we have become an integral part of our local community in Acton, Chiswick and Ealing. Through his teaching Alan provides much needed guidance to youngsters from underprivileged backgrounds, to adults who are dealing with personal or physical problems and to the general public - it's a great way to stay healthy. But also Alan provides the highest level of coaching to make the selection for the national team. For the past twenty-seven years we were based at Acton Swimming Baths, where we had exclusive use of a small but lovely training room. Although this room was half the size of a competition area, we still managed to get numerous first places in the British Nationals, third and fifth in the European Wushu Championships and twelfth and seventeenth in the World. Our training room at Acton Swimming Baths is no longer available to us as the centre closed for redevelopment. We have finally found a location which would be perfect for the Academy to continue. Now we are faced with the question of how to fund the new place. It is a scouts' hut on Popes Lane put up for sale by The Southfield Trust. The location is on a main road, so it would quickly become a local hot spot. We are determined to keep the tradition of The Alan Winner Academy alive as it is unique in its field. There is no other place in the world that combines all the different disciplines: Meditation, Chi Gong, Tai Chi, Wing Chun kung fu, Shaolin Kickboxing (Sanshou), Wushu International and floor gymnastics under one roof. And Alan, having reached the stage of Grand Master at the age of fifty-four has a wealth of knowledge acquired since the age of eight when he started in the competitive world of swimming".

Elderslie Nursery School is a non-profit-making, parent committee-run nursery school with charity status. It provides learning through play for children of multiple abilities between the ages of two and five years old, as well offering an accessible form of support to parents of young children in the local community. The nursery has facilities to teach children with some physical and learning disabilities, as well as able children, and promises a safe, encouraging and fun learning environment through play of all types. Elderslie Nursery School attracts the majority of its funds to buy resources and equipment for the children through fundraising. "The parent committee and local community all help with the planning and implementation of the events and, although this helps, this method can only raise so much and relies heavily on community and public support which can be erratic - so we also rely on funding from external sources of support such as other charities and sponsorship. Our ongoing intention is to provide equipment and resources that will enable children with a wide range of abilities, including children with speech and language difficulties, physical disabilities and autistic spectrum disorders, to learn through play and their environment to the best of their abilities. We are also hoping to find money and/or support for a marketing and publicity campaign, so that we can raise awareness of what we do within the surrounding areas where we are often not known about. We can offer advertising in exchange for support, as we are based within a village hall which is heavily used by other groups to - and our information board is available for all the public to view".
