Voluntary Donations

Please consider a regular gift to make a huge difference to our school

The success of our school is testament to the partnership between home and school and the ongoing support from parents and carers.

Our school has continued this success during a period of financial constraint despite a real reduction in Government funding per pupil.

Loreto Grammar School Trust is our charity set up to advance the education of pupils at the school and exists through the generosity of our parents by means of voluntary donations. Your donations have enriched our school enabling projects ranging from lighting in the main hall to the refurbishment of our reception area making the school a safer and more welcoming environment. The trust also encourages individual bids from each department and funds are directed towards the highest priority schemes and projects. These additional projects could not be afforded from our government grant funding alone.

How can you help?

We ask all parents, carers and friends of Loreto to consider making a regular monthly gift because this will make a real difference to the experience of our students. A suggested amount of £25.00 per month enables Loreto to provide a wealth of additional resources. If you are able to gift a larger amount and/or increase your monthly gift, this will be used to invest in future projects ensuring our students continue to learn in the most up-to-date teaching environments.

The table below shows how regular donations over a period of time can make a significant impact. As we are an exempt charity, we can claim gift aid of up to 25p per £1 donation from a qualifying taxpayer. (Higher rate taxpayers can claim further tax relief on any donation made).

Monthly Amount Annual Total Gift Aid over 7 years
£25 £300 £525
£50 £600 £1,050
£100 £1,200 £2,100
How to donate:

If you are able to donate, please print off our Voluntary Donation Standing Order Form & Gift Aid declaration complete and sign both the standing order and gift aid elements (if applicable) and send into school for the attention of the Finance Department.

One-off payments

We welcome one-off payments at any time via cheque payable to “Loreto Grammar School Trust” please send into school FAO Finance Office or contact the Finance Office to arrange a BACS payment.

All donations are entirely voluntary and any gift you are able to make is greatly appreciated. All students at Loreto are treated equally irrespective of any potential donation or none and all contributions are completely confidential. We are very aware that not all our families are in a position to donate to the school. If you have any financial difficulties that you think the school should be aware of, please contact Mrs Beever and any such contact will be treated sensitively and confidentially.

We are grateful for the support, both financial and non-financial, that the school receives from parents and carers and from the LPA (Loreto Parents Association).

If you have any questions please contact our Chief Financial Officer, Ms H Gill, via the front office or email trust@loretogrammar.co.uk.

Thank you for your support.
