Thame school moves forward with funding appeal

The Annual Funding Appeal has been launched by a school in Thame. 

Lord Williams' School in Thame are moving through their Annual Fund Appeal goals.

After recently introducing a new sixth form study area, the school is close to achieving their next target. 

A video on the schools website shows recent work done, and explains the plans for a canteen pod and upgraded IT facilities.

In it, headteacher Jon Ryder explains despite more funding than expected from government cuts mean the funding situation is still 'pretty dire'.

Mr Ryder said:

"The funding from the government barely covers our basic needs. To be honest, we'll really struggle to maintain what we currently provide.

"Everything you do and everything you donate makes a real difference."

£35,000 is needed to introduce a canteen pod for the lower school. 

This would benefit years 7-9, with hopes of reduced queuing time at the canteen allowing for a more relaxing break. 

They are hoping to implement this project during the spring and summer term, depending on donations. 

The other main project at Lords Williams' School is an upgrade to the computer facilities.

The school is asking for parents, alumni and supporters to set up a direct debit to support the plans.
