Prince Harry viewed both aspects of the programme by popping into Huntingdon Academy Primary School to take part in after school activities, including a bike project, football and gardening.  He then joined the cast and crew for the film launch of ‘Guillemot‘, where he presented the young people involved with certificates for completing the Young Leaders Film course and achieved AIM level two qualifications in Employability Skills and Media.

The Full Effect project aims to build a generation of aspirational young leaders in St. Ann’s, helping them create alternatives to gang culture and violence. The young people receive training to acquire formal qualifications. They also have the opportunity to carry out internships and apprenticeships to give them a track record of work experience.

  • EPIC Partners – a charity formed by the head teachers of primary schools in St. Ann’s and Sneinton that enables partnership programmes for local schools and the community to improve the lives of children and their families;
  • The Community Recording Studio – a music studio renowned for its work with hard to reach young people in St. Ann’s, encouraging them to develop new skills through music.
