Fundraising for Arts, Sport and Technology
FAST is the name of our campaign to raise money to equip the new building with fantastic new facilities. This is an exciting time for all members of the College community, especially for students and staff as they begin to shape the social, teaching and dining spaces for the coming years. The new building will incorporate a new canteen, House office and sports hall as well as teaching spaces for: ICT (3 rooms), Drama (2 rooms), Art (2 rooms), Graphics, Product Design and Engineering.
The £5,300,000 funding from the Local Authority and Education Funding Agency for the project can only be spent on the physical build and not any fixtures, fittings or equipment such as desks, chairs, projectors, lighting for Drama, a kiln for Art and PCs for the ICT suites. We will also be creating a memorial to our former Principal, Martin Bacon, after whom the building will be named. You can find out more about the memorial here.
We have already initiated a number of fundraising activities but there is still a way to go. We are looking for creative ideas and helping hands for future events to help us reach our target, so that we can equip these new facilities to a high standard for students and our local community.
We are hoping that businesses will see this as an opportunity to help us shape the employees of the future by helping us provide the facilities and equipment to match the aspirations of our school community. If you represent a business and are interested in our Business Partnership Scheme, please get in touch with Phoebe Monk for more information (email@example.com).
