Since the Aquinas Foundation began in 2012 we have been extremely lucky with the support of our Celebrity friends, sports men and women. We have been successful in organising a number of programmes within a variety of our schools in the East Midlands. We are currently in partnership with some great companies who want to be a part of what we stand for. Because of the nature of our work and what we do, lots of people want to be involved.
Stratstone have made it possible for us to provide Land Rover Bikes to many of the schools we work with enabling the school to run projects which tackle attendance and punctuality. This has proved to be a huge success within the schools with one of the schools having the biggest turnaround from the worst attended school in Nottingham straight into the top 3!
We are also linked with Holiday inn and Taylor Wimpey
Queens Park Rangers and England midfielder, Jermaine Jenas is the co-founder and trustee of the Aquinas Foundation.

Jermaine will often lead question and answer sessions within the schools and is involved in many of our on going projects.
A massive thank you to Tom Huddlestone for opening the new sports facility at the Nottingham Academy on behalf of the Aquinas Foundation. The Nottingham Academy used to be known as the Greenwood Dale School, which Tom used to attend. To watch footage from the day visit our ‘video wall’.
