Update on School Funding 

Posted on 08 Mar 18 by

Dear Parent / Carer

Please find attached a copy of a letter that will go to 100,000 parents and carers across West Sussex today.

The letter confirms that school finances are still in a very bad state, even with the new National Funding Formula that starts in April 2018.

In summary, schools in West Sussex are still not being funded adequately or fairly and this will negatively affect your child’s education.  We are asking parents to contact their local MP in order to get improved basic funding for all our schools and to ensure more money goes to those with special educational needs.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Our aim is to fully prepare students for life and ensure their success during this crucial stage of their learning journey, so that they can make outstanding progress, academically and personally, to become rounded, confident global citizens.


We have the distinct advantage as a successful school of knowing all our students and so can offer a personalised curriculum that caters for their strengths and individual needs.

Community, Parent Teacher Association & Governors

We have unique local, national and international partnerships which contribute to our overarching ethos as a Community College and as a Trust School. We are supported by a strong and committed Governing Body and Parent Teacher Association.
