Stonewall Award - School and College Champion Member


Stonewall was founded on 24 May 1989, one year to the day since Section 28 became law. Section 28 was a piece of legislation that banned the ‘promotion of homosexuality’ by schools and councils across most of the UK, and led to a total suppression of LGBTQ+ identities in schools.


Stonewall has spent more than 30 years working towards a world where all children and young people have access to an LGBTQ-inclusive education. Their sector-leading Awards programme, developed by their expert Education & Youth team, allows schools to benchmark their LGBTQ+ inclusion against the latest best practice.


Receiving this award means that we feel confident that The Brier School is leading the way in celebrating diversity and supporting LGBTQ+ children and young people to fulfil their potential.
