Free concert to help charity the Transformation Trust

Carillion, Interserve, Shepherd Construction and Wates are among companies supporting a government-backed event for secondary school pupils this summer.

The Rock Assembly, a free concert to take place at London’s 02 on 20 July, has been organised by charity the Transformation Trust. It is supported by the business department and the New Schools Network (NSN), the organisation set up to advise on the free schools programme. It is a sign of deepening ties between NSN and the government’s school improvement initiatives.
