The Hinchley Wood School Development Fund (SDF) is a registered charity (No: 1127285) that was set up to provide financial support for projects that cannot be met by the everyday school budget but which will enhance the overall environment and students’ experience at Hinchley Wood School. The funding we receive covers the basic schooling experience and doesn’t allow us the ability to spend on developing and upgrading equipment and facilities. The Development Fund was established to fund the ‘extras’ to ensure that we are able to provide the very best opportunities for our students: the opportunity to excel academically; the opportunity to pursue extra-curricular interests and activities and the opportunity to exceed their potential.
The monies raised by the School Development Fund will typically be spent on:
- One-off projects to enhance the school environment and facilities for both students and staff including gifts to projects that are deemed the most urgent in that particular year, ensuring we are able to respond to the needs of the School and our students on an ongoing basis.
- Supporting the extra-curricular programme in sport, music and drama
- Supporting enrichment programmes to enhance the learning experience for all learners.
In the past 3 years we are delighted to have been able to use the monies kindly contributed by parents and carers to purchase a new school minibus, refurbish student toilets, install a state-of-the art lighting rig in the new Drama Studio, purchase kit for our sports teams, purchase table tennis tables and create a covered outdoor space for students to use at break and lunchtimes.
