Free places

Funding from charitable trusts and foundations, community energy companies and corporate partners allows Energy Sparks to provide its services free of charge, or at a subsidised rate, to a limited number of schools in certain regions of the UK.

Energy Sparks is seeking new funders to allow us to maintain and extend our free offer to more state schools.

We will let you know if you are eligible for a funded place when you enrol your school, Trust or Local Authority.
