Next stop for the learning bus?

Cambridgeshire County Council is facilitating the search for a new home for a bus that has enhanced learning for a generation of children in Cambridge.

In November 2002 the Trustees of the former New Street School – originally a ‘ragged’ school for poor Victorian children – consulted headteachers in Cambridge about how the resources released by its sale might best be used.

As a result a learning bus was purchased as a free resource for Cambridge schools which welcomed more than 6,000 city children every year to learn about topics including conservation and the natural world.

Now that this funding has come to an end the Trustees of the charity would like to identify an individual or an organisation that can make use of the bus to fulfil the charity’s purpose - the advancement of education in particular by providing opportunities for learning for young people and their families in Cambridge.

Can you offer the learning bus a new home?
