School Trips & Voluntary Contributions

School Trips and Entertainment

During their time at St Paul’s, students have the opportunity to participate on residential trips, outdoor educational visits and curriculum-related trips. These are to enrich the experiences of the students to develop their personal qualities, life skills, communication and resilience. These trips enhance what has been learnt in the classroom and give children a better understanding of a subject.

We see these extra-curricular activities and residential trips as being of immense value to the individual students within the particular year groups. Therefore, we provide opportunities in each year group for pupils to undertake different challenges and experiences that we hope will contribute to their individual all-round education and add to their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

All trips or in-house activities are self-funded and are not possible without parents’ financial contributions.

St Paul’s operates an on-line system to enable parents to make voluntary contributions for their child, for trips, school events and donations to the Governors' Fund.

At the beginning of each term, trips and events are activated on the system and parents are advised accordingly via Parentmail and invited to make these voluntary contributions.

Governors' Fund

St Paul’s School prides itself on striving for excellence in education. To enable it to do so it has long relied upon additional parental contributions, other than the funding provided by the Government. This allows the School to be resourced with staff and materials to a higher level and to maintain higher standards.

Should you feel you are able to contribute, please download a standing order form and a Gift Aid form and return to school for the attention of the Treasurer to the Governors' Fund.

Parental contributions are completely anonymous, known only to the Treasurer to the Governors' Fund.

One-off contributions are always gratefully accepted. Should you wish to send a cheque, the addressee should be St Paul's Governors' Fund.
