For the last six years we have been actively fundraising as we began to feel the impact of decreasing Government funding and finding ourselves, like many other schools, facing significant financial pressure. Even though we'll be receiving additional funding this year, it won't be until 2022/23 that we will experience funding levels similar to that of 2009/10. So you can see why there is still a need to 'fill the funding gap'.
This vital additional income has been instrumental in allowing us to continue to provide our students with the best education possible and avoiding sweeping cuts to their school experience. We want to ensure that the excellent academic experience, pastoral provision and extra-curricular opportunities remain at least at current levels during this academic year.
We are excited to be launching our new campaign 'Pate's Giving' in 2021/22 and ask our generous parents, alumni and the wider Pate’s Community to help us achieve our challenging goal of raising £180,000 by the end of August 2022
We hope we can count on your generous support!
Please consider becoming one of our amazing donors today, with a regular or single gift. You will be playing a significant part in the continued success of Pate’s by supporting our 'Pate's Giving' appeal.
Thank you on behalf of all our students.
