Welcome to King Charles I Appeal Trust
All grants made to the school have been made possible by past donations from parents and others.
The Appeal Trust is a registered charity set up in 1991 which is specifically aimed at providing extras for your son/ daughter's education. It is supported jointly by the Headteacher, Parents, and Governing Body.
The money raised is used to provide facilities which the Government does not normally fund. All of the money collected is used for purchases for the school, aiming to benefit as many students as possible.
Donations come directly from you as parents and careers, and from fundraising activities within school.
With your help - no matter how big or small - we can continue to provide equipment and events to benefit the whole school.
Of course, 2020 was an exceptional year. Despite already having approved grants for activities such as a science workshop, first aid courses, a puzzle challenge day and theatre performances in both French and German, these activities could not take place.
We are however very pleased that we have been able to provide a substantial contribution to much needed text books for students working at home. Plus we have recently made a grant for a new state of the art photocopier so that worksheets and other literature can easily be produced as and when needed, particularly if it becomes necessary for schools to move back to online learning for any length of time.
We have also just awarded grants to contribute towards a small number of activities before the end of summer term 2021, plus provision for equipment for every new year 7 student. These include:-
• English play performance
• Balloon cars workshop
• Reading book for every year 7 student
• Crazy science experiments day
• Zoo Lab
• Virtual author visit
• CCF (combined cadet force) activities
• Stationery set for every new year 7 student

Donations are appreciated at any time of the year and can be sent by cheque (payable to King Charles I School Appeal Trust) or by standing order.
