We are delighted to be able to inform parents/carers about how we are going to spend the second tranche of money that has been paid in to the Academy Opportunities Fund. To date we have received just short of £2,800 and we want to keep £500 in reserve; hopefully, with more funds coming in over this academic year.
To date we have spent £500 on screen print materials for the Art department and a further £500 was spent on benches and planters for the 6th Form outdoor area.
We are now going to buy another external table tennis table, due to the huge popularity of this and the queues to play. This will cost around £1,300.
When we have received sufficient additional funds for the next tranche will be used for purchasing extra staging for New Park Hall so that we can better use the current stage, a sofa for the 6th form relaxation area, a cupboard to display history artefacts, a dishwasher for food technology and a book box for each English classroom.
Many, many thanks to all who contributed.
