In common with other Catholic schools, the Academy has a School Fund to collect contributions from parents, although, over the last few years, the money raised has diminished to a trifling amount. School Fund is not used to support the running costs of the school but to cover costs not provided for by public funds. Examples would include extra-curricular activities, special items of equipment for music or drama of for enhancements to our facilities. We realise that these are difficult times for families too, but if ever we need your support for School Fund it is now. With a donation of just £60 per family, per year, or £20 per term you could support us to make improvements to our school building and environment and enhance your daughter’s school experience. This could really make a difference to our school community.
We have taken the liberty of adding this Year’s donation to ParentPay. Alternatively, we are happy to accept a cheque, made payable to The Ursuline Academy Ilford, for £60, for the full amount for this year or £20 for this term. The Ursuline Academy has a renowned reputation for a caring ethos and a commitment to drive improvement and this will not change. These are difficult times, but the school has a very strong staff and a dedicated Governing Body who are determined to continue to provide an excellent education for your daughter.
