INSPIRING YOUNG MINDS
Racing to School (formerly the British Horseracing Education and Standards Trust) is a charity that supports young people's learning and development through encouraging a broad interest in horseracing, both as a leisure activity and as a possible future career path.
Racing to School has the lead role within the Racing Together partnership, which brings together community engagement activity across the sport that supports a range of beneficiaries.
Racing to School designs and delivers education programmes, working at racecourses, studs and training yards to provide a unique, fast-moving classroom full of learning opportunities for over 13,000 young people every year. The programme engages young people from all backgrounds, including those with Special Education Needs and schools in deprived areas and in rural isolation.
Racing to School's free, nationwide educational activities are supported by the racing industry through a yearly, voluntary grant from the HBLB (Levy Board) and other Trusts, such as The Racing Foundation; so too participating schools and individuals.
