The Colyton Grammar School (CGS) Fund has been created to further the educational experience of all its students. We need our CGS Alumni and friends to help us maintain excellence and provide inspirational facilities . Our students are aspiring to be the best across a wide variety of subjects, to enable us to provide them with the very best opportunities we need your help as a parent, alumni, staff or friend of the school.
If you are able to contribute a regular or one –off donation, your gift can make a huge difference. If you are a current parent, past alumni with ‘warm’ memories of their time at Colyton, this is a way to say thank you, and a chance for you to support the next generation. If you’d like to discuss a specific gift to a department or for a piece of equipment please contact us.
The governors and management team regularly review the needs for funding and the School Fund is essential to enhance the student experience.
How to donate
Please consider giving to the “Friends of Colyton Grammar School Fund” which relies totally on voluntary donations for support. Your contribution will go towards the following:
- The Departmental N££ds appeal
- Major fundraising for capital projects – currently we need to build an extra Science lab
In common with all schools, given a significant reduction in state funding in recent years, it is a struggle to sustain the quality of education and breadth of experience that can we offer.
The current educational funding formula focuses resources on those with the greatest ‘perceived’ need and is based on factors such as social deprivation and low prior educational achievement. Needless to say, as a selective academy, we do not qualify for funding based on underachievement but our able students do require a broader curriculum than ‘average’ children and this too comes at a cost.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A DONATION TO THE FRIENDS OF COLYTON GRAMMAR SCHOOL FUND…

- For a regular donation (e.g. monthly, quarterly, annual) download the Friends of CGS Standing Order Form, and send the completed form to “Friends of Colyton Grammar School, Whitwell Lane, Colyford, Colyton, Devon EX24 6HN
Whether its a one-off donation or regular giving, don’t forget that the school can reclaim 25p for every £1 that you give through Gift Aid – further details are available on both the giving links above.
