We are extremely grateful for the extensive financial support we receive from CBLC which is used to enhance the students learning.
Last year we received an allocation of over £13,000 and we were able to provide confidence building workshops for students to improve their communication skills, trips for Year 12 students to University Open Days and new resources for the photography dark room. A substantial contribution was also received which was put towards the purchase of a new school minibus which will be used to transport students to extra-curricular trips and visits as well as being used for sports fixtures etc.
In addition, a proportion of this funding is set aside in a Social Fund to support Abbeyfield families who need help purchasing school uniform and paying for certain school trips. They are extremely appreciative of this support.
