Generous Grant from Wellington College - Thank You
We are hugely grateful to have received a £50,000 grant from Wellington College’s 2021 COVID Support Fund. The school has incurred a significant fall in revenue from lettings and catering that has put some of our services/projects at risk. The grant is being specifically used to maintain our special needs provision, enhance our counselling provision, replace IT equipment in the sixth form and provide online learning materials for KS4. The grant makes a huge difference to our school community and the continued generosity, support and partnership from Wellington College is much appreciated.
About the funds
Our grant was allocated from Wellington College’s 2021 COVID Support Fund. The fund was established during the third national lockdown in recognition of the additional costs facing schools at a time when receipts from fundraising activities were falling. Awards of £50,000 were made to the five Bracknell Forest and Wokingham secondary schools closest in mileage to Wellington College. The College’s hope is that the participating schools will be able to augment, expand or launch sooner their plans for academic catch-up and better support the mental health of their pupils upon return to school.
