Radius


Radius is the Foundation initiative aimed at supporting local projects with a focus on improving and enriching the lives of primary-school aged children.

Through Radius we identify and support community-based endeavours that align with NHP’s core values. With the support of the Parents’ Association, the Foundation aims to harness the collective resources of our school community to provide both financial assistance and service, including the sharing of resources through partnerships with local charities, organisations and maintained schools.

We believe all pupils mutually benefit from these partnerships, developing a motivation to help and an awareness of the needs of others from an early age; and that through striving to create a school environment that more closely represents the rich diversity of experience that abounds in our local area, we offer a richer and more meaningful educational experience for all students.

Since its launch in 2020, the NHP community have raised over £44,000 for Radius projects. We are currently working in a number of partnerships with local primary schools and organisations including:


  • The Harrow Club - From the Summer Term 2022, we will be focusing our efforts towards raising funds for local organisation The Harrow Club. The Harrow Club shares our vision of a society where all children and young people, regardless of background, can grow and fulfil their potential in a safe and supportive community. Founded in 1883, they work with some of the most marginalised young people in West London to provide accessible and high-quality opportunities, enabling them to maximise their life chances and to enhance their personal development. We will be partnering with them to support on the delivery of their Junior Programme for children aged 8-12 who are at serious risk of being excluded from their schools. Approximately 70 children benefit from the opportunity to attend two afternoon sessions a week, taking part in a variety of sports and educational projects encompassing music, arts and crafts, dance, drama, cookery and a homework club. The objectives are to improve confidence, communication skills and wellbeing, as well as teaching specific skills. They are currently running just one session, at a cost of £8,000 a year and through our partnership, we hope to be able to support them in raising vital funds to offer a second session for a year.

  • The Notting Hill Children's Community Choir - A weekly community choir based on fun, not ability, which we launched in early November 2021 for eight participating local primary schools, including NHP. Up to 48 children meet each week at the Notting Hill Methodist Church to have fun, sing together and enjoy working with other schools. We are currently working with Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic Primary, Oxford Gardens Primary, Colville Primary, St Mary's Primary, Thomas Jones Primary, Avondale Park Primary and St Charles Primary.


And other exciting initiatives including:

  • Sharing resources with local primary schools - Oxford Gardens Primary School visited NHP in September to hold samples of Moon and Space rocks and enjoyed an interactive class about space and space travel.
  • Working with the Mayor's Fund for London - Kitchen Social Programme in association with Harper Collins - to provide thousands of free books to primary schools within our local community.
