Whose supporting us?

We are very grateful to the organisations that support our school to provide the opportunities that we can for our students.

Since 2021 we have received a number of grants from contestable funds that enabled us to undertake things that we otherwise wouldn't have been able to do.

We'd like to acknowledge these organisations
