You will already be aware of the reputation for high standards that AGS has, not only for academic achievement but for extracurricular activities and wider learning. Currently, the income received from Buckinghamshire County Council is only just sufficient to meet our annual basic operating costs and any meaningful capital improvements, or student enrichment and opportunities, must come from additional resources.
The Aylesburian Annual Fund has been created to further the educational experience of all students, over and above the level which normal funding allows and we desperately need the on-going support of the AGS community. We believe that the best and most immediate way for us to continue to improve the education we offer is through regular giving from a high number of donors. The emphasis is on participation and not necessarily the scale of your contribution. If everyone contributed even a small amount, then together we can make a genuine difference to our ageing facilities and to the enrichment we offer.
We want our boys to flourish, aspire and achieve beyond school, and to be prepared for the challenges they face at university and in the workplace. Aylesbury Grammar School is that stepping stone to higher education or the world of work and beyond, and our ten-year master plan must therefore ensure that all our facilities and opportunities enable every student to perform at their own personal potential.
Any regular or one off donation, large or small, can make a huge difference.
If you are financially able we urge you to consider making a contribution to the School on a regular basis. If every parent gave £20 a month annually this would provide the School with an additional £320,000 in funds that we could use to regenerate and refurbish areas that are in dire need of improvement. Our School is old and many of our buildings are tired and rapidly deteriorating but, with the support of our community, we could make significant improvements annually.
Any donation to The Aylesburian Annual Fund is entirely voluntary and we are aware that all families have financial commitments and budgets, but a small contribution can make an important difference.
Please read the brochure which details our plans and complete the donation form.
