In 2017 we established The Bancroft’s Saturday Morning Challenge, whereby Year 5 pupils from state primary schools are invited into Bancroft's during the Autumn term. They participate in a programme of exciting activities which enrich and extend their learning. Bancroft’s staff run the project with a team of our Senior School pupils to help and to mentor the primary school children.
The Saturday Challenge gives children a chance to experience a new and exciting environment and to mix with pupils from other schools. The programme encourages a love of learning and many participants develop new interests and grow in confidence.
Currently five schools are involved: two from Waltham Forest and three from Harold Hill.
