Secondary schools that are members of the School Partnership Programme are eligible to apply for funding towards trips to CERN.
A school can apply for funding to support:
- Pupils not able to otherwise meet the cost of the trip (indicated by pupil premium or the 16-19 bursary or a scholarship pupil at an independent school).
- Pupils in other extenuating circumstances (eg those with a disability, special educational need or other financial need that may prevent them from attending, such as requiring to purchase a passport).
- Pupils from state funded schools that meet our priority audiences including those that live in remote rural or disadvantaged areas and those whose parents have not been to university.
Applications will be assessed according to the above priority audiences.
In our recent round of grant funding the average grant awarded was £400 per trip application (not per student) so please be aware that the school or pupils will require to complete additional fundraising.
Please see our Guidelines for CERN Applications for additional information.
If you have not organised a trip to CERN before, you can read our ‘How To’ guide for advice and guidance.
Applications are only open to secondary schools that are currently or have previously been a member of the Ogden School Partnership Programme. Please contact the Trust before applying if you are unsure if your school is eligible.
Applications are now open for secondary school trips taking place between January and August 2019.
Please read the guidelines before completing your application.
