We know that Bishop Vesey's Grammar School is an outstanding Top 50 state school with outstanding students. But we pride ourselves on providing more than just academic excellence.
The Vesey Experience means teaching young people to have challenging and enquiring minds, enabling them to become well-rounded individuals with the breadth of skills and interests that go above and beyond academic excellence, and give them that competitive advantage when applying to University. Our parents, staff and students have come to expect this, and as the Headteacher, I strive to deliver this.
However, the funding landscape in which we operate has changed. Like many schools we are facing a reduction in our funding and this presents for us a challenge. As a school, we are working hard to ensure that the Vesey Experience - the thing that makes this school so special to our pupils - is not threatened. But to do this, we need your help.
We have already experienced the power that the generosity of our parents, Governors and friends joining together can achieve. Without your help, we would not have raised £3.1 million for the Growing Vesey, Growing Minds twelve classroom STEM Block complete with robotics suite, which will be completed by January 2017.
Without donations from the Patrons and Friends of Vesey Music, (see the form below) we would not be able to sustain such a rich calendar of musical activities and enrichment.
Without your donations, as parents, to the Inspiration and Excellence Fund, we would not have been able to pay for our new tennis and netball courts for floodlights on Middle Field, or subsidise wonderful academic enrichment opportunities.
The Vesey Experience makes a real difference. Please help us maintain it through a standing order to the Vesey Foundation Inspiration and Excellence Fund for just £20 or £30 per month. Please note that Gift Aid will add a further 25p in the pound to your donation.
Do please complete the Inspiration and Excellence Fund form below and return it marked Inspiration and Excellence Fund, which will guarantee appropriate levels of confidentiality and which will receive my personal attention.
Thank you in advance for your kind and generous support which will help to underpin our ambitions for the school and will be of direct benefit to your son or daughter.
