Charity description

Aylesbury Grammar School-TAAF logo
The Aylesburian Annual Fund offers the opportunity for every parent, old boy, member of staff, governor and friend to support both current and future generations of students at AGS. Through regular giving or a one off gift you can help us to realise projects that urgently need our attention and will enhance the educational experience for every boy at AGS.

Supporting our Annual Aylesburian Fund is especially powerful because, if we raise sufficient funds, the contributions will go to work within the year. Every student will benefit during their time at the School.

Importantly, this Fund does not ‘top-up’ the decreasing School budget but it does allow us to plan and deliver essential refurbishment or enrichment projects. This year, the funds will be spent on the important refurbishment of some of our deteriorating computer science facilities.

Founded in 1598, AGS is an outstanding school and sets itself very high, aspirational targets in terms of student, staff and whole school development. As you know, the reality is that Education nationally and locally is experiencing a funding crisis and we are keen to make you aware of the way you can support AGS quickly and effectively.

As an Academy, our annual operating costs are funded through central govt. each year, and in recent years, our annual allocation per student has been decreasing. For example, in 2016/17, we will have received £5.7 million in funding which amounts to an average of £4,300 per student. This is only just sufficient to meet our annual basic operating costs.

We are in fact the 15th lowest funded school in the country.

If you are in a position to do so, we are encouraging our community to set up a regular standing order, at an amount they can afford, over the time that they are prepared to commit to. Any contribution, at any level, is valued, appreciated and put to very good use and with gift aid your donation is worth an extra 25%.

Thank you to all those who have already chosen to support the Fund. Your support is very much appreciated.
