Speedwell Trust is a voluntary organisation established in 1991 to bring Protestant and Catholic children together through education. It is a charitable trust governed by a trust deed which sets out the objects of the trust –‘to encourage the advancement of mutual understanding through education by encouraging, supporting and developing cross community projects.

’Our vision is of a shared society that is tolerant and respectful to everyone. We believe it is important to give children and young people the opportunity to learn about each other’s traditions, understand and respect their differences and recognise and value what they hold in common.

The Speedwell ethos encourages children and young people to view it as normal to cross inter cultural barriers and through contact build better and, in many cases, new relationships with their peer group from a different tradition.’


Good Balance

…There was relevant, useful knowledge re Energy imparted in addition to creating the opportunity to work collaboratively and form new friendships.  There was a good balance between seated activities and more active learning. (11 November 2015)

Excellent Approach

….The children were able to join in with all activities and mix in with their peers from our neighbouring school. Stephen delivers the programme very well and has an excellent approach to the children. (5 November 2015)

Highly Recommend

… Excellent day – well organised and children showed keen interest. Sadly the weather did not permit the children into the forest but many other indoor activities were planned. I would highly recommend to others! (17 Nov 2015)
