Welcome to the sponsorship section of the website.
The Purbeck School prides itself on the extra-curricular programmes that we can offer our students, especially around Sport and the Arts.
All of the events below are events that could be sponsored either by an individual or a company.
If you are interested in fully or part sponsoring one or a number of the events below then please do contact the school on 01929 550077, we would be delighted to hear from you.
As part of the sponsorship packages we can offer links and publicity on our own website and articles and links being promoted in our literature, or we can discuss bespoke packages that suit your requirements.
The School Show
The school show is the centre piece of the school music and drama productions. Last year the fabulous ‘School of Rock’ attracted over 400 people over two nights and our primary feeder schools watched a matinee performance. This year the show will be ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and will run across November 28th and 29th. The show would benefit from sponsorship funding that would support costumes; props; maintenance of the staging; hiring of the stage microphones.
The Science Fair
We run this weekend event for the community. It usually attracts 300-400 people, mainly young families. The event includes many local providers and businesses showcasing Science innovations, and The Purbeck School Science staff are on hand to run experiments. Funding would support the costs to secure some of the outside providers, marketing, and the materials used on the day.
Academic excellence, and subject awards around the school ethos of respect, aspiration, and perseverance are given across the school. Funding would support some of the prizes which include amazon vouchers.
School fixtures, kits and equipment
All of our sports teams play home and away fixtures. We have been very fortunate to be national champions at handball and always have a high level success across the county. Funding would support equipment and kits.
The Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths club is run by Mr Davids and is highly popular with students. Whether they are solving the world’s water shortage problems through the soroptimist challenge, or building robots for the future, their work inspires young minds and promotes these important life skills outside of the classroom. The STEM club would benefit from some funding for materials and equipment.
Is a day focussing on bringing the whole school together – the day is about participation and excellence. Funding would support a PA system, canopy for spectators, and trophies.
Each year the school prom allows us all to say a fond farewell to our Year 11 who after this event are then sitting their examinations. It is a highly popular event with nearly all of Year 11 coming along to the event. Sponsorship would help with costs towards hiring the venue and the entertainment that can be provided to make it a night to remember.
The ‘I have never project’
This project supports students who may be suffering from anxiety or find socialising in the school environment challenging. The project is run by Mr Hopwood and Mr Woollard, who tend an allotment area to the side of the school – they are expecting their first produce soon! However, they would benefit from some funding for seeds, equipment, and fencing around the allotment area.
The school mini bus – Sponsored by Motura
This allows our sports teams to travel the length and breadth of the county – and supports trips and visits across all year groups – we have access to one mini bus which costs a substantial amount each year to run.
The Super 7 lounge
When a student receives a ‘super 7’ it is an award for excellence in a particular field. Through this they can queue jump and gain access to the ‘Super 7’ lounge – we would like to make this lounge for for a true ‘super 7’ experience for students but require funding for seating and equipment.
School promotional material
The school produces promotional material and booklets each year for Open Evening, new parents evening, newsletters, 6th form open evening, careers fair. These booklets and materials would lend themselves very well to being sponsored by an individual or event – either through whole page adverts/sponsorship details in the packaging.
The Purbeck School has partnered with Motura to lease its very own mini bus. The mini bus (which is a 17 seater with all the mod cons!) will be used extensively over the year to support sports teams and trips. Headteacher, Mr Darley commented ‘We are delighted that Motura have offered to support the leasing of
