Turing House

Turing House School Fund

The Turing House school fund is vital in helping to provide services and equipment not supplied by central Government. It is commonplace for secondary schools to operate a school fund to help enhance the curriculum and provide extra resources for the school.  The voluntary donations that parents generously contribute ensure that we can provide opportunities that would not normally be affordable.

We use the funds to sustain a wide range of extra-curricular activities for all students.

We strongly encourage everyone to participate in after-school clubs and believe there should be no financial obstacle to any pupil wishing to extend their education with high-quality sporting, musical and creative activities. 

Equipping our new building

We are excited about the move to our new premises in 2022. The state-of-the-art building will provide wonderful facilities for our students, but government funds only cover limited equipment for the site. We hope to use the school fund to further equip our new sports, art, drama, and music facilities, providing exciting opportunities for our students.

What do we ask parents to contribute?

We suggest £15 a month as a voluntary contribution but if you would like to pay more (or less), we are very happy to receive any amount that parents can afford, and think is appropriate. If we received this donation from three quarters of our families, for example, we could raise more than £60k in just one year to use for a range of activities.

How to donate

The easiest way is to use our JustGiving webpage as we can claim GiftAid on most of the donations.

Alternatively either complete the standing order form available on our website or just set up a regular payment from your bank using the sort code & account no on the standing order form. If you do this please give your payment the reference “THS School Fund”.

Donating through your employer

Many employers operate a matched giving scheme – a list of some of those we know about is here. Please do check with your own employer if they have such a scheme because we not only receive the GiftAid through that process but they top up the donation themselves, often doubling it!

Turing House Friends

THF also raise money for the school in various ways. One easy way of helping them and the school is to register on Easy Fundraising and raise money every time you shop online. Over the last 5 years, around 90 supporters have raised over £2,000. Imagine what could be raised if all Turing House families signed up! If you shop using Amazon, you can also raise funds by using Amazon Smile and selecting Turing House Friends as your chosen charity.

We are very aware that there are a huge number of financial demands on families so we are very grateful to you for anything you feel you can contribute to Turing House School at this time. 

Thank you very much for your support; it really makes a difference to what we can offer our students.
