Due to our success, we have been asked to expand in September 2019 so that we are able to admit 242 students per year group instead of 225. As a result of this, the Local Authority are funding a fantastic new multi-purpose hall which is now currently under construction.
We are extremely grateful for this. However, this space will only be an empty shell and the school will still need to purchase everything that will go in it, from stage equipment to lighting to theatre-style chairs to stage curtains, so that it can fully cater for our award winning wind bands and superb drama productions.
The school has registered with two fund raising services, to help make it really easy for parents and supporters of the school to help raise funds and support its activities: 'easyfundraising' and 'Golden Giving'. With easyfundraising you can make online purchases through their portal with well-known high street shops, who then make a small donation to the school. Golden Giving involves you making a donation to the school, for example helping to raise funds for the new performance space currently being built.
Each service and how to donate is explained below.
