Team one arrived at Kinabatagan yesterday for their KOPEL project and have spent today collecting and planting seeds to help grow more trees in areas of the jungle affected by deforestation. It's been a hot but productive day! 🌲🌿 https://t.co/8gRz1aci3N

Fundraising

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. 

Parental support is paramount to the continued success of the HWS Development Fund with the primary source of funding being voluntary regular, donations made by current parents.   If you are a parent and would like to join the Voluntary  Donation Scheme please download the forms below and return the completed and signed forms to The Bursar, Hinchley Wood School, Claygate Lane, Hinchley Wood, Esher, Surrey KT10 0AQ or via the student post/Finance Letterbox in school or scan and email to mrobeson@hinchleywoodschoo.co.uk
