School Fund Contribution

E-mail Print

School Fund ContributionDear Parent/Guardian

As you will be aware, all schools in Northern Ireland are in challenging financial positions.  There is not enough money in the system and without an Executive, it is getting even harder to run our schools. We really need your support to help us operate at current levels and maintain the quality of education at Bangor Academy.

We ask for a small voluntary contribution to help support the range and quality of provision at Bangor Academy.  We are extremely grateful to the 85% of parents who supported the school last year by contributing a small amount which made a big difference to every student.  This money was used to provide subsidised trips and transport as well as to help with the new induction programmes, sporting activities and a range of resources.

We only ask for a one off payment to support every student and I would be grateful if you would consider making a voluntary contribution of between £10 and £50.  We welcome any contribution so if you wish to contribute a lower or higher amount that would be fine as well but if you are unable to make a contribution at this time, please do not worry. 

Contributions can be made through SIMS Agora or by sending in a cheque to your child’s form teacher made payable to ‘Bangor Academy.’

We are extremely grateful for all of the support we receive and we will only request this voluntary contribution on one occasion annually.

Thank you in advance for your support and please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further information.

Yours sincerely

Matthew Pitts
