As a college, we wish to give every child the best possible experiences as we strive to teach them to ‘learn to live life to the full’, be it through curricular experiences within lessons or through extra-curricular opportunities at lunchtime or at the end of the college day.
We are very fortunate that staff at the college give extremely generously of their time, hence why we are able to offer so many clubs, fixtures, trips, residentials and other experiences. We try very hard not to pass on any costs to parents/carers for curricular or extra-curricular activities, but in order to run trips and residentials, it is usually necessary to ask for parents/carers to contribute at the given time.
In order to fund the consumable materials needed to complete all the projects in Key Stage 3, we unfortunately need to rely on financial contributions from parents/carers each year. We are therefore asking for a £15.00 contribution per pupil, other than for pupils who qualify for free school meals. This is a contribution towards the consumable materials, as the donation does not cover the full amount per pupil. If your child qualifies for free school meals, we will make the contribution for you from school funds. Further funding is also available for pupils receiving free school meals towards enrichment opportunities organised by the college and we will issue details to parents shortly.
