The PIE Project

The Primary Inspiration through Enterprise Charity was established in 2013 when 4 primary schools in Walker, Newcastle upon Tyne came together to set-up and run a shop.  Since then the programme has grown and has worked with over 50 schools and 3000 pupils to become the first UK initiative that delivers accredited Enterprise vocational qualifications which involve, parents, pupils, teachers and businesses, that is delivered in Primary and Secondary Schools. 

Over the years the project has extended its breadth and depth to incorporate a range of activities including engineering, art, and coding that ultimately help our future generations realise their ambitions and raise their aspirations.

Our Patron is Sir John Hall, our PIE President Bill Midgley OBE and our founder is Ammar Mirza CBE.  We work with a vast number of organisations that have kindly dedicated significant time, effort and in some cases money to make a difference to their local communities.

Currently we are working with PEERZ Academy  to link our initiative and offering mentoring to those young people that are unable to afford tutors to help them gain GCSE and A 'Levels.

All money donated is exclusively used to provide schools and teachers with the resources needed to deliver our activities including the qualification.  Please do consider making a donation HERE  to help transform the lives of children in your local area.
