The business partnership behind key projects including the refurbishment of Hull New Theatre, Trinity Market and the Ferens Art Gallery has pledged more than £1m to schools in Hull.
Esteem, established eight years ago, is made up of representatives from Hull City Council, Sewell Investments and fund management specialist Dalmore Capital.
So far, the partnership has delivered 27 schools, created more than £500m of wealth through key education projects and sourced more than 5,000 construction jobs in the process.
Esteem is now continuing to use local companies to carry out building, remodelling and refurbishment work at schools across Hull in an investment worth £1.1m.
