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.

Supports the Ebacc Campaign

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 100,000+ 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 the campaign logos and images - available here
