State Street’s support for our Music Gala last year enabled over 500 students from across the Ark schools network to join together in a musical celebration at the Barbican. Our young musicians performed with confidence and skill, delivering a rich and diverse programme to a professional standard.

Thanks to State Street’s continued generous support, we are now delivering a targeted confidence building mentoring programme with Year 10 students from Walworth Academy in Southwark. State Street has provided the much needed funds for this programme as well as the employee volunteers who will mentor and support students over the academic year.
