Support the School

We actively welcome donations to support the development of facilities and resources for our students. Over the last 20 years, donations from parents, old boys, trusts and charitable bodies have allowed many large and smaller-scale projects to come to fruition, keeping our provision of education facilities up-to-date and fit for purpose.

Every donation, no matter how small, whether regular or a one-off, helps the school to fulfil its mission of providing the highest quality education for every student.Set up regular parent contributions or a one-off payment

Why we need your help

Donations to the School all go to the Watford Fuller Foundation (WFF). The WFF gives money to the School to support our day-to-day operations and is a source of support when we undertake capital projects. The fact that we can put up money from our own resources often generates further funds from places that other schools cannot access.

Watford Fuller Foundation (WFF)

The School operates under tight financial constraints, including facing a reduction in the grant received from the Government. Many public funds rightly focus on underperforming schools and disadvantaged communities, meaning that we have to look to parents, old boys and other organisations to help us maintain standards and continuously improve.

Support from parents and alumni is an essential part of our overall fundraising efforts to maintain our position at the forefront of local and national education.
 

We are truly grateful to those parents and alumni who currently make regular donations. 

If you would like to learn more about parental contributions, please contact Donna Connolly, External Relations and Fundraising Manager by email:
