‘Funding the Future’

Tuesday 01 March 2011

‘A key target for all schools, which is easy to achieve, should be to raise the cost for their annual CPD programme’ David Poppitt

Alan Wright, former head Bolton School

How have the recent budget cuts hit your school?  It’s estimated that most schools will lose between 7-10 per cent of their funding over the next four years.  Schools that hit this issue head-on will fare better than those who bury their head in the sand.

The Income Generation team will advise how to use fundraising to replace lost budget … at no risk to schools.
