40th Anniversary Capital Campaign



In September 2016 our school building turned 40 years old and we held a celebration party. We also launched a Capital Campaign to raise funds to renovate our library which has water-logged windows and a leaking roof. As the best-selling children’s author Anthony Horowitz said, “You can tell a school instantly by its library….The library is the beating heart of any school and its life and vitality depend on it.” We agree. The library should be the hub of any school.

After 9 months of fundraising and a successful bid to the Department for Education, we are delighted to announce that we’ve raised the £115,000 needed for this urgent project. We are now ploughing ahead with the planning needed to carry out the work later in the year.

Thank you to our entire community for the support and enthusiasm generated and we look forward to sharing further details with you as they emerge.
