The money raised by the Friends through events and other fundraising activities is used to support extra curricula opportunities for all students by providing equipment and supporting participation. Here are some examples of how the money we have helped to raise has been spent over the past few years:
Mini grand piano, steel pans and steel pans club, new PA system and chairs for the hall. We also help create a festive atmosphere with refreshments at all school performances.
Arts, Design & Technology:
Art mentoring project - a screen printing project providing training to Y12 artists and the transformation of Y8 art into a permanent art work. We’ve also supported the skateboard and bike maintenance clubs and the school reading garden project.
Outdoor table tennis tables, trampolines, rowing machines and help providing refreshments at Sports Day and Sports Achievements Awards. We’ve supported participation in the tennis club, Y8 outward bound activities, Watersports activity trip to Barcelona and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.
We are grateful for the generous sponsorship we have received from Hamptons International over recent years including specific contributions towards the new minibus and the team strip of the Charter School’s championship football team.
