Development

Welcome to Turton funding and development

We are determined to offer our students and our local community the best facilities and opportunities. However, public funds are limited and the school relies upon the generosity and goodwill of supporters to help us to continue to develop the school.

We have a number of ways that our supporters can help us:

Sports Hall Roof Appeal

Turton School is very proud to run a community sports centre which provides affordable and easy access to sports activities for local residents. Since taking over the running of the centre in 2012 the sports centre staff have worked hard to increase the range of activities available and the centre is busy every evening and weekend with young and old taking part in a wide range of sporting activities including swimming, fitness classes, martial arts, football and much more.

The sports centre has also run various community based activities which have allowed local families to participate in a wide range of free sporting and educational activities.

Recent work at the school has highlighted that the sports hall roof will need significant repairs in the next two years. I am sure you are aware of the funding pressures facing schools and no additional funding is received from Government to run the sports centre.

The repairs to the roof will cost around £75,000. To fund this the Parents’ Association are appealing to local residents, sports centre users and businesses for donations.

We would be grateful if you could spare some money however large or small to help us to keep the sports centre running.

If you would like to donate £35 or more you could commemorate your gift with an inscribed block which will be displayed on the sports centre corridor.

If you would like to donate then please complete the form attached.

 

Annual Fund

Our annual fund allows supporters to donate a monthly amount to the School. This can form a substantial sum over time and could make a tangible difference to our students.

Our Annual Fund focuses on funding projects which directly benefit our students' learning environment.  Our priorities are:

 

  1. Music Department Equipment
  2. ICT Facilities
  3. Sport and Team Transport
  4. Buildings

 

 

You will find more information and a donation registration form.
