In April 2012 Future Foundations was funded by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) to work with the Edmonton Strategic Partnership (ESP) and Nightingale Academy (NA) to deliver the Edmonton Summer programme. The provision of a four week academic summer programme aimed to transform the future for students from disadvantaged backgrounds in Edmonton schools by offering small group academic tuition and the opportunity to take part in a wide range of enrichment activities.
Between 23rd July and 17th August 2012 Future Foundations delivered the summer programme for 160 Y5 and Y6 students from Edmonton primary schools. There was a mixture of small group tutorials led by teachers and inspiring mentors (independently recruited and trained by FF for this programme), interactive workshops, day-trips and sports/recreational activities. All the sessions were designed to help the students develop academically, to increase their confidence and enable them to take control of their education and succeed in life.
