  • Need

    Need

    We work hard to ensure that our fees remain affordable as possible, however, fee income cannot always cover the cost of additional projects that enrich the pupil experience at Royal Hospital School.

    Solution

    We launched the Annual Fund Appeal in 2013 and have raised over £30,000 in the last two years, enabling us to provide enhancements to the academic and co-curricular provision for all of our boys and girls. Our target this year is £40,000 of which we have already reached £22,000.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To enhance the educational experience of each and every pupil at our School.

    Activities

    » Support carefully selected and specific projects which will accomplish our aim.

    We aim to increase pupil participation by 50% in the projects which we have identified.


  • Impact

    Impact

    Enhancement in both academic and co-curricular activities will improve confidence, awareness and self esteem in all our pupils beyond school life.

    Risk

    There are no risks which will affect any of the identified projects. With further fundraising throughout the year we aim to achieve our target and deliver all of the projects.

    Reporting
