This school year we’re aiming to raise and spend £50,000 on extras to enhance education at Cherwell. Your giving is vital to make this happen.

If you can, please give monthly. Just £10 a month adds up to a very meaningful £120 over a year – plus Gift Aid takes it to £150.

In addition to all the usual challenges for school funding, COVID-19 is creating extra pressures on Cherwell’s resources and facilities.

New outdoor furniture

In September 2020 we provided some £7,500-worth of new outdoor furniture on both school sites. We’re delighted to be helping to create extra fresh air spaces for the children at Cherwell. Your donations as Friends made it happen. Thank you.

As Headteacher Chris Price put it: “This new outdoor furniture will make all the difference. Our students now have additional workspaces as well as places to socialise. They have made such a positive start to the year and speaking to them they are so grateful that we are thinking about how we can support their needs and make the school a better environment for them during a challenging time. The Friends of Cherwell have made this possible. Without their generous donations we simply would not have had the funds to do this.”

More projects are already in the pipeline to help even further.


Sincere thanks to all our Friends who have already given so generously through one-off or regular monthly donations. You are making a massive difference for the school. If you haven’t yet had chance to donate, please do come and join us.
