For the last 4 and a half years we have been working to add value to the curriculum facilities and enrichment opportunities here at Chestnut Grove Academy by raising additional funds with the help of parents, staff, students, the Friends of Chestnut Grove (PTA), trusts and foundations and the local community.
Nationally, £2.8bn has been cut from school budgets since 2015 and 91% of schools continue to face billions in budget cuts and have less money than ever before. Chestnut Grove Academy is trying to tackle head on - and to date we have raised over £400,000 which has afforded us many improvements in and around the school - as well as new opportunities for students.
Our latest and most visual campaign, Green the Grove, has resulted in a new green field, more trees, flowers and shrubs and a kitchen garden. Funding is already also secured for an Eco-Club, Green Roofed Canopy and there are plans for bee keeping!
