Fundraising at Stringer

The Dorothy Stringer School Fund is a registered charity – 1071616

The Dorothy Stringer School Fund is dedicated to enhancing the educational experience of every student at our school. We are incredibly proud of the diverse range of extra-curricular activities we offer, from sports and arts to academic clubs and community service projects. These enriching opportunities are only possible thanks to the time and support our staff provide without charge.

However, there are essential costs associated with these activities that are not covered by our statutory funding. This is where the School Fund plays a crucial role. By contributing to the fund, you help ensure that all students can benefit from these valuable experiences, regardless of financial background.

Additionally, the School Fund provides vital support to families facing financial difficulties, helping them to manage the many and varied costs of school life. Your generous donations enable us to continue offering this enriched support and maintain our commitment to inclusivity and excellence for all.

Current fundraising campaign

At the moment we are raising money for a new minibus and we’ve been working on a number of events and initiatives to help us hit our £33,000 target. Keep an eye on the Weekly News and SLG for information on our upcoming fundraising events. We’re also looking for businesses that may be interested in sponsoring a minibus – if you know of a business that may be interested, please get in touch with us at
