ABS Trust

The Acland Burghley School Trust is a charity set up by parents and governors to raise extra funds for the school. Funding for any extras schools want to provide has shrunk leaving a real gap to fill at Acland Burghley. The Acland Burghley School Trust offers a very concrete way to support the school’s vision of developing talent and achieving the highest possible success for every student. The School Trust is seeking help from parents and others who share this vision.

In recent years, Trust has funded:

  • Outdoor table tennis tables
  • An outside trampoline as part of the Active Spaces Project
  • Vocabexpress - an online modern languages resource
  • Plants and pots around the school and the Base Gardening Project
  • An English A level residential trip to Haworth

We are always keen to receive ideas from students, staff and parents for projects which need funding and will always work closely with the school to ensure the money is spent wisely and appropriately.

We are currently fundraising to make improvements to our assembly hall as part of the Acland Burghley Better Spaces project.

Give as you live

For some people direct financial contributions may be difficult so we are developing ways to also support Acland Burghley School Trust at no financial cost. To do so we would strongly encourage those who shop online to register with Give as you Live - HTTP://WWW.GIVEASYOULIVE.COM/ and list the Trust as beneficiary. This will mean retailers funnel a few pennies from their profits to the Trust every time you shop online with no cost or hassle to you. Each person who signs up is worth on average at least £25 a year to Acland Burghley, so if every parent signed up we could raise £50,000 a year.
