East Sussex Fundraising Committee

We are extremely privileged that East Sussex Fund-Raising Committee have adopted us as their charity for the next 3 years.  A lunch was held on Wednesday 8th May at the wonderful Hendall Barns, where a delicious lunch was served and a raffle held to raise money for the school.  Our extreme gratitude to all those who gave their time and effort on the day.  It was lovely to meet so many people and tell them about the school and our work.   We are looking forward to the next event of the Christmas Fayre in Ardingly in October.

East Grinstead Rugby Football Club Sunshine Sevens

Thank you so much to the East Grinstead Rugby Club Sunshine Sevens who made an amazing donation of £7,000 to the school, following their annual lunch.  Sam Matthews received the cheque on behalf of the school from Garry Gordon.  The school have allocated some of the money for ICT equipment, so we are able to capture pupil progress more easily and share this with families.


Jacinta and Tony Pile

A huge thank you to Tony and Jacinta Pile who donated £1,000 to the school in December 2018.  We sadly said goodbye to their son, Charlie, who had attended the school for 12 years and made amazing progress.  The money will be used to purchase some equipment for our new pupil-run tuck shop, so pupils can practise their work skills.  This is Charlie joining in with Children in Need in November. We wish Charlie all the best in Ireland – he will be missed.
