Beyond the Classroom

Making your voice heard

What's happening this year?

Working alongside our schools and partners, we want to amplify the voices of all young people, as loud as we can make them. That's why we've created Beyond the Classroom: a series of events and opportunities to take your VotesforSchools lessons even further.

On this page, you will find all of the different ways for schools, teachers and young people to be informed, be curious and, most importantly, be heard.
