FunDS rAIsed AND Grants MADE

The Foundation Trust was established shortly before the opening of the West London Free School in 2011.  The school has grown by one year group each year, and the voluntary parental contributions to the Foundation Trust have increased in line with this growth.  In some years the Trust has received generous donations from other sources. These have made a positive difference to the overall annual amount raised.  In 2016-17 the Foundation Trust began raising funds for the benefit of the Primary Schools and the 6th Form.

 

The majority of Foundation Trust grants have been made in support of the extra-curricular programme at the school enabling children to participate in a wide variety of confidence and character building pursuits.  Additional grants have been made to enhance school facilities, books and the purchase of school transport

In 2016-17 the Trust started bring in funds from foundations.  The majority of funds still come from standing orders from the parent/carer community
