The Exuberant Trust is a local charity which supports young people in Oxfordshire who are developing their interest in the arts: music, drama, dance, art & crafts, multi-media, etc. and who are in need of a small one-off grant (maximum £500) for a specific project or activity.

The Exuberant Trust raises funds by organising concerts throughout the year and from donations received from its supporters. Successful applicants are encouraged to take part in concerts and other activities in support of the Trust.

EBacc debate in parliament to take place on Monday 4 July 2016

Good news! The debate secured as a result of our combined efforts in driving the EBacc Parliamentary petition to 100,000 signatures, will take place on Monday 4 July 2016. Until then - Please write to your MP to discuss the implications of the EBacc.

A message from the

Bacc from the Future Campaign Team

The Department for Education have announced plans to make a new English Baccalaureate (EBacc) a headline league table for schools, and give it a bigger role in Ofsted inspections.

The Government expect at least 90% of pupils to take it. This would make it all but compulsory for many students.

The EBacc requires pupils to study a minimum of seven GCSEs, but includes no creative subjects; it risks forcing art, dance, design, drama and music and other creative subjects out of schools.

We need your help to save creativity in schools:

Things you can do to support the campaign:

  • Join the campaign here, along with 21,000+ others.
  • Write to your MP if you are concerned about Ebacc.
  • Spread the word - tell your colleagues, friends and family about the campaign and spread the word through twitter (using the hash tag) #baccforthefuture
  • Use our campaign logos and images - available here
