Governors of a voluntary-aided church school are responsible for contributing towards the cost of running the school and this includes a proportion of new building work. In order to fund this the Governors have to raise money for our extensive programme of refurbishment and redecoration.
To assist us, the Government makes available an annual sum for repairs and refurbishment, provided the governors can find 10% of the cost. For us this represents excellent value for money as it means that for every £100 we raise the Government gives us a further £900.
In order to achieve this, families of our students are asked to make an annual/termly contribution to the Development Fund. This year the suggested annual donation per family is £40. This can be paid either as a lump sum or in termly instalments of 2 x £15 and 1 x £10.
