We believe strongly that every student deserves to fulfil their potential. Whether our students’ strengths lie in the classroom, science laboratory, sports field, music room or on the stage, we strive to provide the very best opportunities to enhance their education, creating the leaders of tomorrow.

What does the Development Fund do?

The Development Fund was established to fund the ‘extras’ to ensure that we are able to provide the very best opportunities for our students: the opportunity to excel academically, to pursue extra-curricular interests and activities, and to exceed their potential.

Since the Fund was launched, gifts from parents, Old Blues and friends of the School have supported projects which have had a direct and immediate benefit for our students.

Funding has contributed to wide ranging projects such as the purchase of musical instruments and vital technology and equipment. The Fund also gives us the ability to allocate gifts to projects that are deemed the most urgent in that particular year, ensuring we are able to respond to the needs of the School and our students on an ongoing basis.

We are hugely grateful to our community of supporters who contribute what they can each year to this Fund…. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

Our priorities for 2017/18

We have three key priorities for funding this year and we hope that our parents, Old Blues and friends of the School will feel inspired to support us to help us meet these priorities. You can find out more about the projects we hope to fund this year here.

How to support the Fund

If you are able to help, please download our Donation Form & Gift Aid Declaration and return it to the Development Office. Please also remember to complete the Gift Aid Declaration if applicable, which will increase the value of your gift to us significantly at no extra cost to you.

Giving to the Development Fund is about the spirit of participation rather than the level of gift and this is an opportunity for you to get involved, at whatever level you can afford. Gifts have an immediate impact on the lives of our students and small, regular donations have the power to collectively make a big difference.
