Annual Fund

 

The Norton Knatchbull School Annual Fund

The main element of our budget, which we use for providing additional opportunities and learning facilities for our students, is our Annual Fund. This source of revenue, generated solely by voluntary parental donations, has recently supported the development of new facilities such as the sixth form study area; three minibuses, which provide free student, transport for many trips and sports fixtures; and the conversion of a classroom to a 21st Century science lab. These are valuable additional facilities, which make a real difference to our students.

We hope that our Annual Fund will be supported by all parents  making a minimum donation of £30 each. There is no maximum! If you are able to make a higher contribution, we would be incredibly grateful but whatever you can give will make a real difference to your child’s time at NKS, as the table overleaf illustrates. Further, the money from the Fund supports the students in the year in which it is received and so your child will directly benefit. In the coming year, we hope to be able to fund new outside canopies and recreational equipment for break times, improvements to our creative arts facilities as well as continue to provide our extensive extra-curricular programme.

You can choose to make a one-off annual payment or pay by monthly standing order. You can set up the payment on-line with your bank and use your child's name as the reference. The bank details for online payments are as follows: Lloyds Bank - Sort Code 30-90-28 and Account Number 45104560. If you prefer to use a Standing Order Mandate click here to download the form.

You will no doubt be aware that we can reclaim valuable Gift Aid on donations (25p for every £1 donated) so please do fill out the a Gift Aid form if you have not already done so and return to our Finance Office.
