Funding Projects

As a registered Charity, all profit from activities (after expenses) is invested back into the school to fund various bid requests for the benefit of Gordon’s pupils.  We operate a bidding system whereby any member of Staff, Heads of Departments or House Parents can request funding for various items which would otherwise not have been possible using existing budgets.

Each year we automatically donate £500 to all 10 Houses, DofE, CCF and the Pipes & Drums Band (a total of £6,500).  We also provide funding for Fun Day (£4,200) which follows Patrons Parade in June.  Below is a list of previous successful bids.  Please like our Facebook page where we regularly post photographs of items purchased.  As always, we are very grateful for the continued support of Gordon’s Parents.
