School of Hard Knocks - Southwark Schools
We have been working in East London with pupils in danger of exclusion from school, starting in year 9 and taking them through to the end of their GCSE course. Our results have been fantastic and we are about to start a new project in Southwark. Bacon's College are participating and we have several others interested if we can raise the funds to run a full programme. We are hoping to raise £22,500 to supplement funds already raised to work with 75 boys in each year group.
It costs £600 per pupil per year to take the boys (only at the moment) out of school one afternoon a week and give them rugby based fitness training and intensive mentoring to help them with family, social or school problems that they may have. Please go to www.sohk.org.uk/crowdfunding or look at the SoHK facebook page where you can see our video and read about the results achieved so far in East London. Thank you for your support,
