The Beaconsfield School run a school EXTRA donation facility to raise funds for the development of the Schools facilities and the lives of our students within school.
The EXTRA fund runs every academic year to raise income for projects of immediate need around the school. The projects funded will enhance and broaden the life and educational experience of the students of The Beaconsfield School.
If all parents in Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 were to donate just £2.50 per month to the school, the price of two bottles of water, it would raise an amazing £22,500 in one year! That is equivalent to a new minibus.
|Donation per month||Number of KS3 and KS4 students||Possible Amount Raised in an academic year.|
We welcome support from all parties: parents, grandparents, ex pupils, governors, trusts and companies. All support is greatly valued no matter what the gift.
You can choose either to give a one-off donation or make a regular contribution via completing the attached form below.
As part of this scheme, the school receive 25% of the total raised from HM Revenue and Customs, if you complete the Gift Aid Declaration for those who pay UK tax.
A membership club is run each academic year. For a monthly subscription of £5 your membership number is entered into a monthly draw for cash prizes.
For more information on the Membership Club please contact email@example.com or call 01494 683994.
Each year we ask staff and students for nominations for ‘Charity of the Year’ in September. We then hold a series of assemblies to all year groups and where they hear a presentation on each nominated charity. Students and staff then vote. The unsuccessful charities are then given £50 from the first fundraising and all other money’s raised during the year goes to the chosen ‘Charity of the Year’.
In 2018 - 2019 we held a series of events to raise money for a variety of charities including a sleepout for the Wycombe Homeless Connection, a disco for Papyrus, the Prevention of Young Suicide, various cake sales and mufti days for Anti-Bullying Alliance, Children in Need and Lindengate, a local mental health charity and The Childrens Charity Hospital. Throughout the year our students raised a huge £5,711.12
2017-18 Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation - Total raised - £3753.62
2016-17 Multiple Sclerosis & ChilternsMSCentre - Total raised: £4429.26
2015-16 Cancer Research - Total raised: £3807.61
A simple way to help – we all end up with small coins floating around in our purses, on the sideboard at home or perhaps you have a jar you collect your spare change in. Each mentor group has a bottle in their classroom they fill with spare change and last year we raised nearly £1000 by doing this. Please help us smash this total this year.
