What is the Opportunity Trust?

The Samworth Church Academy OpportunityTrust was founded by our Sponsors (Sir David Samworth and the Diocese of Southwell and Nottingham) to support the wider work of The Samworth Church Academy.  The purpose of the Trust is to support activities that would not normally be part of the educational provision of the Academy. 

The Trust cannot support staff salaries, normal curriculum resources (e.g. text books or on-line materials) or anything related to the normal operation of the Academy.  The Trustees allocate income that accrues from the investment of the endowed funds. They cannot spend the capital.  The awards are considered against the purpose of the Trust and the criteria and procedures that the Trustees have established.
