Free Schools Going Green: more solar power needed

Once we have raised enough funds to buy the school busses we urgently need, we plan to install solar panels at the school in order to run fans during the hot spring, summer and early autumn months, and to sustainably run our computer room. Right now we run our computers on generator power and the classrooms rely on cross ventilation for cooling. We would also like to install additional computers as pupils have to work in pairs or teams of three on each computer terminal that we currently have. Any excess funds we might raise from our bus campaign (link to follow) will be used for this purpose.

The global recession and our school

Sadly we have lost several sponsors since the start of the recession in 2008. We understand that our network of sponsors have been facing difficulties due to the global financial crisis and we thank everyone who has ever contributed to the school.

We would welcome any new support that is available; if interested please email Joanna on

New school sponsors needed for 2013-2014!

We have for the last few years been running at a monthly deficit and urgently require new sponsors. If you could spare £5 per month, it would make a world of difference to us, and virtually nothing is taken away from your sponsorship money for administration costs. Please email with any questions and for information about giving or sponsoring.
