Fundraising

Voluntary Contributions

All contributions will be ring-fenced for use on enhancing students’ experiences on and offsite. Although this is a voluntary contribution we hope as many as possible can make the contribution.

All contributions will be used to increase activities taking place off-site and also invite companies in to enhance students learning and access to exciting opportunities we may not be able to organise without the additional funding.

We are asking for a contribution of £15 from each student. This could be paid in one amount or 3 installments of £5 a month for 3 months through the school gateway app.

As an Academy we are aware that some households will struggle to pay this, so please note it is a voluntary contribution for those who are able to make the payment.
