Not yet a First Story School?
If your school fits our profile and is in one of our operating regions, we’d love to hear from you.
Where we work
We work with secondary schools in the East Midlands, West Yorkshire, Hull and London. Check out our current schools map to see if we’re already in your area.
First Story is committed to bringing opportunities for creativity to students who may not otherwise have the chance. We focus on partnering with state secondary schools with GCSE results falling in the lowest third of the national distribution; with more than 50% of students living in communities considered to be deprived (according to the Government’s official measure); and/or with higher than average levels of Pupil Premium funding.
All First Story schools make a contribution to the full cost of our intensive residency programmes. The maximum we charge is £4,200 for our year-long programme, and £2,400 for a single term only. However, fees depend on your school’s region and if you want to combine programmes. Your local First Story contact will be able to tell you more about this.
Please complete this form to express an interest on behalf of your school. One of the First Story team in your region will be in touch soon to tell you more and answer your questions.
