Departmental N££ds

To strengthen the student experience we urgently need your support. Our government funding, as with many other schools, has been decreasing year on year. We are now fundraising directly for departmental n££ds. This will enable our teachers to challenge students, maintain the school as an outstanding educational institution and ensure our students have what they n££d to reach their potential.

The Art Department is a space for creativity to unfold. We need funds to support our creative students. The Art Department is adapting to the new GCSE examination, which means artwork needs to be stored for 2 years, to store work we need to purchase new equipment.IMG_8497

The needs:      1.  A large Drying Rack would be used to reduce the risk of damage. We are grateful to the Norman Family Charitable Trust for a gift towards the drying rack but we seek £700 to complete the purchase.   

2. A new large Screen print press would be used to assist in building more skills into the new GCSE and support the lunch time ‘Print Club’ run by Year 13 students.         Cost £,1250

Walking in the Chemistry lab the shiny, transparent glassware hovers in clamps on the chemistry_bgbenches. Pupils aged 11-18years, technicians and teachers all handle these fragile pieces of equipment and they get broken. This glassware is expensive and needs to be complete to used in lessons. To build stocks up we need £300 to purchase more glass ware.
