Rees Jeffreys Road Fund Competition: schools shortlist announced

The shortlist for entries to the Rees Jeffreys Road Fund Competition from primary and secondary schools has been announced.

There were two entry categories – primary and secondary – with prizes of £5,000 and £2,000 in each category for the school that best answers the question:

How do we improve the way that our roads and streets work for us in a changing world?

To help answer this key issue, pupils and teachers were asked to consider:

  • What is the big idea? 
  • How does it work?
  • Who will it benefit?
  • And what would your school do with £5,000?

The primary schools in the running are; All Saints’ School, Gresford, Barlaston CE (VC) First School, Deri Primary School, Doune Primary School, Hunters Bar Junior School, Mill Ford School, Oakdale Junior School and Woodlands Great Warley while the secondary schools are; Lewis Girls’ School, Oban High School, Portsmouth High School, Trinity Fields School, Ursuline High School and Walton Priory Middle School.

All schools that submitted valid entries will receive a special certificate to celebrate their entry. Winners will be announced on Friday 3 December.
