Lloyd’s Kent office launches Number Partners locally

Lloyds @Hilltop

Supported by independent charity Tower Hamlets Education Business Partnership (EBP), employees from Lloyd’s of London’s office in Chatham and Hilltop Primary School in Rochester, Kent have started an exciting new partnership. This initiative is part of Tower Hamlets EBP’s National Number Partners expansion campaign.

Gavin Evans, Headteacher at Hilltop Primary said: “This is a wonderful opportunity for pupils from the school to further develop their Mathematical ability and gain experience of working alongside ‘real’ professional adults. We are delighted to be working with Lloyd’s on this venture”.

Volunteers from across the Lloyd’s market in London already support young people with numeracy across Tower Hamlets schools as part of Lloyd’s Community Programme. Lloyd’s is delighted to expand its reach to include employees from its Chatham office in order to support young people in the Medway area.

Helen Sanson, Director at Tower Hamlets Education Business Partnership, comments: “Having worked with students in Tower Hamlets for 25 years and running National Number Partners since 2004, we have a deep understanding of how to devise and deliver programmes that meet the needs of pupils and make a positive difference in their lives. The expansion of Number Partners with Lloyd’s and Hilltop Primary School will enable more young people to benefit from volunteer role models, building their confidence in and enjoyment of numeracy and inspire them to learn more, do more and become more”.
