The Sorrell Foundation was set up in 1999 with the aim of inspiring creativity in young people and improving the quality of life through good design. The Foundation creates and prototypes new ideas and develops models that can be widely used.

The Sorrell Foundation Young Design Centre opened in Somerset House in spring 2007. The aim of the Centre is to explore what young people want from design at school and in their daily lives.

What’s Next For Schools? is an exhibition at the Sorrell Foundation Young Design Centre. Created in partnership with award-winning architects Casson Mann, the exhibition is an innovative interactive display that uses film, web games, models, audio and imagery to describe what pupils want in their schools. The display focuses on 12 common issues identified by pupils that, if solved, would dramatically improve the quality of life in schools.
