The School Fund
The school is committed to providing a world-class education for your daughter. To do this we are embracing new technology and creative learning to equip students with skills for their future. At the same time, we are committed to developing the 'whole student', focusing on a well-rounded education that supports and builds confidence, spirituality and well-being alongside academic achievements. To be able to do this, Sacred Heart High School relies heavily on the generosity of parents. Financial support is essential for the school to continue to provide a high quality of education for your daughter.
Under the Parental Contribution Scheme, parents are asked to make a regular donation to the School Fund for the duration of their daughter’s education. The recommended donation is £25 for a single pupil per month or £40 per family per month. This is a recommendation only and your donation is entirely voluntary. Where parents feel they can give more, they have often done so. By the same token, families who are in a position to donate only a little or in some cases not at all, are reassured that whatever they decide will be treated with respect and in the strictest confidence.
Setting up a Standing Order with your bank or building society
Please use this link to download a School Fund Standing Order mandate.
Please print this out and complete it. It explains that the top section should be returned directly to your bank.
There is a slip at the bottom to be returned to the school, so we know about your school fund donation. The slip also gives you the option to confirm whether or not you agree to Gift Aid the donation. If you are a UK taxpayer, if you tick the Gift Aid box, then the school receives an extra 25% from the government on top of your own donation.
The impact of ticking the Gift Aid box can be viewed here

Details for your Bank
You are also welcome to contact your bank directly to make a direct payment but do remember to let us know about this, using the slip at the bottom of the mandate from linked above. The School Fund bank account details are as follows:

If you are an existing or a previous donor and have not yet availed of the extra 25% Gift Aid for the school, please complete the slip on the form linked above and deliver a signed hard copy to school (for attention of the Head of Communication & Development). We can then retrospectively claim Gift Aid on your behalf for the last four years.
