The School is most appreciative of the generosity shown by the vast majority of parents in their support of TWGGS Fund. Contributions to our School Fund are vital in supporting many important areas of school life that are not otherwise provided for. It is non-discriminatory, and all pupils stand to benefit from it. TWGGS girls who take part in the many extra-curricular activities on offer and financed by the Fund always perform well and do much to raise the profile of the School. For example:
- In P.E., the Fund pays for tournament fees and the affiliation to many diverse Sports Organisations. It covers the cost of transport to and from fixtures and pays for the hire of astroturf pitches.
- In Music, the Fund helps to pay for the provision of vocal and instrumental coaching by the visiting peripatetic teachers. It pays for the hire of venues and accompanists and for the sheet music and scores required for our concerts.
- In Drama, the Fund subsidises the costs of the school’s drama productions and the adjudication of our drama festivals, whilst in the English Department, it funds the girls to take part in a number of high profile debating competitions.
The School Fund also pays for the running costs of the school minibus, subscriptions to various associations and school prizes.
Finally, and importantly, the TWGGS Fund finances the SOUTHFIELD FUND, which assists students in the payment of the costs involved in, for example, school trips and field work, music lessons, the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme, school books and equipment. Any parent or guardian, who may be experiencing either short or longer term difficulties in meeting these costs, is invited to apply in confidence to the headteacher.
At the present time, the expected annual donation per student is £40, although donations are welcomed at any time and of any amount. Since becoming a charity, the Fund is also able to reclaim any tax paid on your donation provided a Gift Aid declaration is completed. Any queries should be directed to the School Fund Manager at the School. Thank you.
