The Assembly Hall project

We want to return the Grade 2 listed assembly hall to its original vision - an amazing performance space for our students and community. A place where our children can feel at home and inspired to learn, create and perform.

Our other fundraising campaigns

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.

Better Spaces and Experiences 

We are working hard to provide funding for extra-curricular opportunities and to improve the school environment. In recent years, we have supported the creation of an ‘urban orchard’, landscaped gardens, outdoor tennis tables and residential trips. 



How you can make a difference

About the School Trust

Acland Burghley is proud to be a school where learning and creativity are celebrated. Students are encouraged to be ambitious for their future, and work hard to achieve their goals. The school community is more driven than ever, and achieving so much.As a state school government funding is limited. Sadly, this means it’s hard to cover the costs of providing each student with the extra-curricular opportunities and creative environment that we believe is so important.That’s where The Acland Burghley School Trust comes in. A registered charity, it has been set up to raise funds for the school to support those opportunities and the education of all our students.
