Development Fund

Providing a remarkable education is only achievable by the financial commitment of the Trust, stakeholders, local council, PTA and alumni.

In common with most other schools and academies, we ask parents to make a small voluntary contribution to help us provide some of the additional facilities and activities that make the school and enjoyable and engaging place for your son or daughter to spend their time.

We recognise that the financial circumstances of families vary enormously and that some families are not in a position to make a contribution of this type. However, if you are able and willing to contribute to the running of the schools mini-busses, purchases of lockers, additional books and resources, providing equipment and facilities for clubs and societies, we would be very grateful.

At the suggestion of the Parents Association, we have changed the way in which we would like you to contribute to the Development Fund. Rather than a lump sum which was payable at the beginning of each academic year, when there are other school related costs like school uniform and equipment purchases, we are moving to a regular monthly payment by Direct Debit (restricted to the months of the school year remaining from your son’s start date if he is admitted mid-year). We would hope that most families would contribute £5 per month to enhance your child’s education and wider learning here at Holcombe Grammar.

If you would like give a voluntary donation monthly to the Development Fund by Direct Debit, then please select from one of the payment options below.
