Anchor Fund

The Anchor Fund was established in October 2000. It has charitable status and is specifically designed to provide the best learning experience for students at the school. The fund gives all parents the opportunity to contribute directly and effectively to the education of their children.

Donations can be made in three ways

  1. Online via Virgin Money Giving. Please click this link to go to the SCD page: SCD Virgin Money Giving
  2. By a monthly standing order – please complete the standing order form below. Please also sign up for gift aid– we can reclaim 25p tax on every £1 donation made.
  3. Online via Parent Pay - payments can be made when logged in to Parent Pay when paying for trips or lunches.

Over £610 000 has been donated since the Anchor Fund was established and the school is very grateful for the contributions and support received from the parent body. The Anchor Fund has enabled the school to update learning resources and Information Technology hardware to ensure that students have frequent access to high quality materials and equipment which will complement their learning. It is particularly pleasing to note that the examination standards of students have consistently improved since the Anchor Fund was launched.

The letter below provides further information about the Anchor Fund and a reply form which can be completed and returned to the school.
