Like everyone, the School is facing an unprecedented challenge to deal with the effects that COVID-19 presents. Current parents face uncertainty and financial hardship as the UK government, and other governments around the world, take drastic action to curtail the spread of the virus.
We are asking for your support in helping to build an emergency fund that will provide support for children whose family circumstances see them unable to continue to access their West Buckland School education.
Now, more than ever, is the time for the worldwide West Buckland community to stand together to support the School.
We have already started to receive donations from Alumni, Ex-Staff and the school is in a good position.
We are looking for donations to help current pupils weather the storm, and protect the school for future generations.
This is an opportunity for the West Buckland Family of Yesterday to look after the West Buckland Family of Today.
With the support of the West Buckland School Foundation, who have kick-started the Fund with a £50,000 donation, we hope to raise enough to help pupils stay at School over this challenging time. We understand that it is a difficult time to ask, but your support will play an invaluable role in ensuring that the School continues to provide an outstanding education to its current pupils.
Before COVID-19 hit us, the School was in extremely good health; our children's recent academic and co-curricular achievements are remarkable.
Please help your old School so that we can help our current pupils. Current parents face uncertainty and financial hardship as drastic action is taken to curtail the spread of the virus. Any help you are able to offer will make a huge difference.
To find out more about how you can support the School, please contact Amanda Reynolds ([email protected]) or please use the attached form. Amanda is Foundation and Alumni Director - the Foundation has been supporting deserving pupils through the School since 2003.
Together, we can navigate whatever lies ahead of us and emerge as strong and united as ever.
