The Manorfield Charitable Foundation work in partnership with Manorfield Primary School, a large primary school in Tower Hamlets, east London.

The school is in one of the most deprived parts of the country and serves an underprivileged community.

We want to give the children and families we work with the very best start in life.  We believe that, despite the huge barriers many of our children face, we will not use these as excuses, but will find ways to overcome these barriers and enable the children to achieve both academically and in all they do.

In 2018, 2019 and 2020, over 600 runners have completed the Big Half half marathon for Team Manorfield raising over £100,000 towards the building of a new Nursery, outdoor learning areas for our 2, 3 & 4 year olds and completing our new Art Studio and Teaching Kitchen.

Having seen the huge impact our previous fundraising has had, we are now planning to enhance the school further to allow children to access further outstanding learning experiences by creating outdoor learning areas for our 5 & 6 year olds, an outdoor art area and an outdoor cooking area.

These projects will cost over £100,000 and all funds raised by our Big Half 2021 runners will go directly towards this.



£25,512.50 raised of £1,000.00 target by 10 supporters

£20,420.00 donated and £5,092.50 in GiftAid

Manorfield Charitable Foundation

Our mission

Our mission is to support the development of the whole child and enhance the quality of life of Manorfield Primary School students by supporting investment in the school and its programme of engagement with the local community so that:

 - Manorfield’s students have every opportunity to grow into responsible and successful citizens;

 - The school acts as a force for greater cohesion in local community;

 - Manorfield Primary School becomes a role model of effective inner city primary education.

What need are we addressing?

Set in one of the most deprived areas of England, Manorfield Primary School has complex needs to meet in terms of social, economic, health, language and cultural challenges in the community it serves. To achieve its goal of developing the whole child, the school must pay equal attention to its students’ educational, personal and social needs. These go well beyond the areas covered by statutory funding and extend outside the school into work with parents and the local community.

The charity’s purpose is to find the extra resources that the school needs to do this important work.
