Help us win £5,000 for new library!
Published on 26/11/18
We are delighted to announce that our school is one of 18 finalists in a fundraising competition, School Challenge, run by Hallam FM’s Cash for Kids, in conjunction with the Sheffield Star.
All the schools taking part have until 24 December to raise as much money as possible for their chosen cause. The school that has raised the most will get an additional £5,000! and the next five winners will each get £1,000 each.
We are raising funds to create a brand new library in school, to help encourage a love of reading and to provide a quiet space for self-study, and help support our many reading projects.
How to donate
We have until 24 December to raise the most money possible - to then try and win the £5,000 top prize! Please donate via our crowdfunding page here - as that is where our grand total will be calculated.

Then give the money in cash or cheque directly to the school and we will pay it in on your behalf.
