Help us preserve our school heritage for future generations of students.
King Edward VI School has a long history and a beautiful location. However, our school buildings are now in dire need of repair, refurbishment and replacement. With a shrinking budget and rising costs we are now struggling to provide the basic quality of accommodation that our students deserve.
We have maintained our number of students but there has inevitably been an impact in other areas in recent years to help us come even close to balancing the budget. Investment in our school buildings has been drastically reduced.
Our priority is to protect the curriculum and extra curricular opportunities for our students and we have done everything we can to maintain this. However, we need your help to improve the environment and its potential for all our students.
Why does the school need donations?
The school environment can have a huge impact on students’ morale and helps us to create the atmosphere of high expectations and a ‘can-do’ culture which we aim to foster and in which they can thrive.
By just focusing on basic priorities, such as classroom refurbishment, fixing the roof, replacing guttering or improving the flooring on stairs and corridors, we can create an environment in which students can learn, where their work and efforts can be displayed effectively, and they can be proud to spend time in.
