We ask all our parents to consider giving to the school. The government funding we receive is not keeping up with rising costs and is taken up by our core budget. That bit extra from parental giving enables us to offer a wider range of activities and facilities and makes a great difference to your child’s educational experience at Holy Trinity Pewley Down. We take our school motto seriously - 'Learn to Live' - and voluntary donations help us develop confident, well-rounded individuals with values and purpose. In addition, as a voluntary aided church school, we have to fund 10% of any building and capital works. We are a charity and can claim gift aid on donations, which is worth an extra 25p for every £1 donated.
We completely understand that some families are less well-placed than others to give and also that circumstances change, but we hope that you will consider it carefully.
Ways to give
1. Administered by the school
If you choose to make a regular contribution by standing order, please download the standing order form below. These arrangements can be amended or cancelled at any time.
If you wish to make a single donation by cheque, please complete the single donation gift aid form and return these to the finance office.
The school is also registered on the BT Donate website to receive donations. Use the link below to find ‘Holy Trinity Pewley Down school’ on BT Donate. You can also make your gift aid declaration online and BT collect the additional money on the school’s behalf from HMRC. We will acknowledge your donation if you give your donor details with your submission.
Our voluntary funds are used to offer non-core activities, as well as to subsidise less well-off pupils to go on trips and visits. In addition, we currently have some major infrastructure projects that you may wish to donate towards.
At Holy Trinity, our new Chapel was completed recently and is in use for assemblies, plays, events and clubs. The cost of £320,000 was funded by a local authority advance and previous donations, including from HTSC. However, we now need to raise funds for the planned bridge link to the school building, as well as the glass foyer. We also need to find 10% of current improvement works to roof and windows.
At Pewley Down, we have recently completed a major roof rebuild and window replacement with funds from the Diocese. The governors' 10% was met by previous donations, including by FOPS. The IT infrastructure at Pewley is also due for an upgrade.
