Endeavour Community was established in 2020 to operate and develop the community network across the family of schools that comprise Endeavour Learning Trust. We provide the use of the schools’ facilities for a wide range of groups, organisations and individuals at competitive rates. Endeavour Community create a thriving environment outside of the school day and we work with our schools to achieve this. We operate our own community programmes in schools which cater for families across the region. We are currently developing new initiatives and programmes to roll out across our schools which we hope to launch when national restrictions allow us to do so.
In September 2020, we launched our new online booking platform with School Hire, the national-leading venue management system of extended services for educational institutions. This has enabled us to provide a platform for the community to book facilities at all of our schools in one place. Many of our user groups use the facilities of multiple schools within our Academy Trust and this has benefited these organisations to manage their bookings centrally.
The use of School Hire's Activity booking site has also enabled us to streamline the booking process for our community programmes, which include our Holiday Camps, WLSP Wildcats Girls Football programme and our public and lane swimming sessions at Tarleton Academy. All programmes are now bookable and payable online, reducing paperwork and eliminating the transfer of cash across all of our schools.
