#SaveOurAstro

Each school year we focus our efforts on one school area for upgrade or improvement, based on the needs of our students and the vulnerable state of some of our facilities.

These whole-school fundraising projects are a chance for the community to put their stamp on something that will significantly change the experience for our students, now and in the future.

The Astro Upgrade

It’s been more than 20 years since our astro pitch was installed and, in that time, we’ve seen a remarkable amount of history made. For some it was the place where they first fell in love with Hockey. For others it was where they honed their skills to join the elite world of sport. We’ve even welcomed local Hockey and Football clubs to make our pitch their training home.

Now is the time to build on that history. And to build an even better pitch! Let the fun commence!

There's a whole host of FUNdraising activities planned to raise £100,000 by the end of the summer term:

Previous campaigns

When our community comes together, we achieve remarkable things. Our University-grade Science laboratories wouldn’t have been built without the commitment of parents, staff, students and local businesses, who all supported our Inspiring Sciences Periodic Table campaign.
We created three labs, each offering the latest equipment and facilities for the advanced study of biology, physics and chemistry, with a dedicated A-Level lab sponsored by emotive. The Headteacher and Science team designed the largest lab with curved stations facing in to a central teaching area, to allow for contemporary, interactive learning, as well as glass boards and breakout areas for focused student forums.

Together, we can #BeRemarkable
