Can you help Anchor Fund to provide extra resources for students?

Thank you to all the families who donate to the Anchor Fund - your regular contributions make a huge difference to the resources the school provides for the children. The fund enables the faculties to purchase essential updates to textbooks and additional resources to provide the very best educational experience for the students. The Anchor Fund was established in 2001 and has charitable status. It was introduced to provide the best learning experience for students at the school, and gives all parents the opportunity to contribute directly and effectively to the education of their children. The Trustees of the Anchor Fund meet termly to consider grant applications from the faculties, including the provision of curriculum support, the provision of equipment and books for students, and other projects that enhance the educational experience of the students. Parental contributions have helped with significant capital projects, such as creating a hard play area next to the maths block, installing canopies and upgrading the English area and upgrading the Barbirolli Hall.

The Anchor Fund ensures that in a period of reduced government funding the school continues to improve and flourish. The consistency and the generosity of regular parental contributions are an important ingredient in the school’s continued success. The faculties now rely on provision made by the Anchor Fund to maintain the high standards that the school is renowned for. Increasingly faculties rely on the Anchor Fund to maintain the high standards of materials and resources that the students and parents expect from St Clement Danes School.

We ask that all families consider donating to the Anchor Fund, so that the faculties can continue to provide the additional resources that make their experience in the classroom and beyond the very best it can be.
