Donor Thank You Reception
Naturally, we always thank our donors individually, but once a year, we like to bring everyone together to show our appreciation of their ongoing support and to report back on how their donations are making a difference.
Foundationers & Benefactors’ Service
This annual event is held to honour the work of our Founder, Andrew Reed; to celebrate the successes of our Foundation pupils, both former and present and to give thanks to the benefactors who have helped and supported us.
To engage the whole School in celebrating the birth of our Founder, Andrew Reed, we hold a range of special activities, lessons and chapel services. Special guests are invited to speak about how the Foundation has changed their lives.
