The Governing Body Building Plans - Phase 2:  The Brymer Room

 

Our Brymer Room project became reality following an intense period of fund-raising.  During our project, lots of exciting events were organised,  both grand and small-scale and we were very lucky to have received generous donations from CHADS and the Friends of the School and other local benefactors, which all ensured that our project could be completed successfully.  The Brymer Room is certainly a great asset to our school as it is used almost permanently for all manner of different activities from music lessons to small groupwork and whole class story time.

 

With such great support from our community, we are hoping that we can move on to the next phases of our project, which will ensure our school continues to develop and grow. 

 

If you have already pledged to our Buy a Brick appeal, we are hoping that people will gift aid their donations ... so if you are a UK tax payer, please help us to raise even more by completing and returning a gift aid form with your donation - click here to download - thank you.  You can also donate to the fund via the mauve 'my donate' button, above.
