We, as trustees, decide as a committee how to spend the funds we raise. We take advice from the headteacher at our school and/or other members of the senior leadership team on goods and/or services that are required to advance the education of students at the current time. 

We may undertake some longer term projects depending on the needs identified to advance the education of students at the school. For example, funding a theatre redevelopment or classroom build. These may require funds to be raised over a longer period.

How to join the committee or become a helper?

If you wish to join the committee or become a regular helper at any of our events, please send an email to friends@bishopperowne.co.uk and we will get in touch to let you know how you can help.

You are most welcome to come along to any of our meetings to see what we are all about and how you might support the school, you don't have to be on the Committee.
