School Development Fund

Thamesmead School Development Fund’s aim is to support the schools mission that each student will realise their potential.  The level of funding we receive from the government covers the basic schooling experience and doesn’t allow us the opportunity to spend on developing and upgrading equipment and facilities.

As a parent or carer, you can help make a real difference through a voluntary regular donation to the School Fund. Your support is vital to our success and the future of our students.

We are currently raising funds to replace our two minibuses, which are fast approaching the end of their useful life. Our minibuses are used by all our students for sports fixtures, curriculum enrichment trips, college visits, careers fairs and more.

To help boost our efforts, Mr Reeves and Miss Phillips are running the Brighton Marathon in April, please sponsor them here: www.virginmoneygiving.com/team/thamesmeadteachers
