Hull’s Endike Academy receives grant for the arts

Hull’s Endike Academy, part of the David Ross Education Trust, has received a generous grant of £1,000 to help inspire pupils through a number of incredible opportunities within the arts.

Local arts charity IVE, the Yorkshire and Humber bridge organisation for Arts Award, have offered Endike the substantial grant after the school submitted the second highest number of Arts Award moderations within the area this year.

The Arts Award programme, which is managed by Trinity College London in association with Arts Council England, aims to support young people who want to deepen their engagement with the arts and allows them to enjoy cultural activity.

Linda Burrows, Headteacher at Endike Academy, said: “We are delighted to receive this generous grant, which will help us to provide many more outstanding opportunities to help our pupils explore the wonderful world of the arts.

“Being involved in a variety of arts projects has really helped us to build on our school’s sense of community and pupils’ excitement around the arts. We encourage all of our pupils to explore their creativity through extracurricular activities, and I am extremely grateful to the Arts Award scheme for supporting us in this." 


As part of the David Ross Education Trust, Endike Academy is committed to offering a wide range of fantastic learning experiences for pupils.

These exciting and varied opportunities, which are offered through the Trust’s pioneering enrichment programme, encourage pupils to discover new things, develop their passions and explore their talents.
