Since our inception in June 2019, we have managed to raise an amazing £77,000!!!
This is largely thanks to a very generous £69,000 donation from a local anonymous charitable trust who wanted to support the PSA in their initial fundraising drive to re-equip the school with much needed IT equipment. We had set ourselves a £10,000 initial money target for 2019/20, which would have replaced computers for one IT room. However thanks to this amazing generosity, that target was smashed, and we have been able to replace and re-equip no less than nine computer rooms with new hardware.
A snapshot of fundraisers the PSA has done recently;

For the 2020-21 school year, we have again set ourselves a £10,000 target, with which we are hoping to help fund the refurbish the main building toilets. However due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, traditional fundraising activities are going to be limited. We therefore need to find new revenue streams and focus on easy no-hassle wins such as the School Lottery.
