During Covid, we stopped asking for these contributions due to the wider uncertainty facing all of us. However, with school budgets increasingly pressured, we need to ask for this kind of contribution, in line with most other schools locally. We have set a target of raising £10,000 for the student POWER committee to spend this year.
The Board of Trustees have agreed to ask for a contribution of your choice. We would suggest that £10 per term for the first child, and £5 per term for each subsequent child. I would like to reiterate, this is a voluntary contribution to the value of your choice, and we are aware that not everyone will be in a position to make any contribution.
These voluntary contributions will appear in your child’s Wise Pay Account, and you’ll be able to choose the amount to donate. You might even consider setting up a standing order. Please email the finance department if this is something of interest to you.
We also have a Gift-Aid scheme where every £1 you give – or have given in the past – is worth 25p more. Please click here to find out more.
The images below are some of the ways in which school fund money has been spent over the past few years. The POWER committee have been behind many of the projects:
