School Champions Awards

School Champions based in England are able to apply for our School Champion Awards once you’ve been a member for a year. Available at Bronze, Silver and Gold level, our Awards benchmark your work and help you stretch to meet new challenges. Celebrate your school’s achievements with exclusive use of our School Champions logo.

Stonewall School Role Model Visits

At Stonewall we know the importance of visible role models, especially for young lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people who do not feel that they are represented in everyday life. This is why we work with people from different backgrounds, with different jobs and life experiences who give up their time to visit schools to talk about their experiences of growing up as an LGBT person. Stonewall School Role Model Visits are available to all secondary schools and colleges that are part of the Stonewall School Champions programme.
