City and Diocese of London Voluntary Schools Fund

This is a fund administered by the London Diocesan Board for Schools.  It gives small grants to pupils of Church of England Schools within the Diocese of London.

The annual amount available for grants is usually around £19,000 which does not go far across 156 schools.

In recent years, it has been particularly helpful to schools as a subsidy in respect of educational visits, journeys and field trips.

When applying for school journey grants, please give as much information as possible to support the educational nature of the journey.

Please read the current grant making policies and Frequently Asked Questions available via the link below on this page before making an application to make sure that you meet the minimum eligibility criteria.

The Trustees ask schools to note the deadlines for submitting grant applications:

  • 28th February for summer term journeys
  • 30th June for autumn term journeys
  • 31st October for spring term journeys
