Nominate a school to win £5,000 towards STEM learning

The Rochester Bridge Trust is pleased to offer a donation of £5,000 to support STEM learning, to be granted to one school as voted for by members of the public.

All state secondary schools, colleges and academies in Medway, Maidstone or Tonbridge and Malling were eligible for nomination.

The Trust, an ancient charity which owns and maintains three bridges at Rochester at no cost to the public, launched this giveaway to schools to encourage the next generation of civil engineers.

Scholarships are also available to support students studying maths and physics or design and technology at A-level or IB level. Find out more and apply for a scholarship, visit

Voting has now closed.

The closing date was Thursday, 29 February 2024, at noon.

The winning school will be announced during British Science Week, 8-17 March 2024.

The small print
While it is possible to nominate any school, only schools located in the three eligible districts will be considered for the prize – which will be presented to the school with the most votes.
