Our donors consist of parents, students and members of staff, both past and present, as well as local businesses and charitable trusts. Donors either choose how their donations are spent or allow us to choose how to spend it where the Schools need it most. Should our donor wish to choose where the funds are used, they may choose means-tested fee assistance, for local children who would without such financial support would be unable to attend the Schools.
Alongside supporting local children with means-tested fee assistance, our donors may request that their donation be used in securing the facilities and resources our students deserve. Many areas of the Schools have been enhanced through such generosity: Lllowarch Performing Arts Centre, Richard Harris Art Centre, Geoffrey Timm Reading Room, Staveley Library, Louth Fitness Suite, Tunnicliffe Terrace and contributions towards all other facility development such as the Oswald Elliott Hall.
We rely upon, and deeply appreciate, all financial support and will remain reliant on fundraising in the future. We manage our finances very efficiently and consider carefully how we spend any money – we simply raise additional funds to minimise borrowing and to protect any reserves the Schools have that may be required as a contingency for unexpected situations such as the pension contribution in September 2018.
