Development Trust

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.


Celebration Evenings/Assemblies

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.


STEM club

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.


Sports Day

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.


The Prom

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’ – working with Holton Lee 

Holton Lee and the I Have Never project have been working closely together for the last 12 months. From swapping allotment ideas and providing goods to sell at craft fairs, we are keen to continue to develop the relationship

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 JDT Utilities

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 Development Trust

The Development Trust was established in 2015 as a charitable organisation to raise much needed funds for the school. As a result of the fund raising and generous donations the Trust has been able to support a number of key school projects.

  • In 2016 money was donated to the school so that it could establish and resource a Special Educational Needs library. The school now has a dedicated, relevant, and age appropriate reading materials for all students.
  • In 2017/18 the trust released funds for the STEM club (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths). This club engages many of our students and is in constant need of the latest equipment.

The Trust has over the past three years also been raising funds for its primary goal. To support the redevelopment of the school hall. The hall opened in 1981 has had very little refurbishment work done since and is in need of updating. The hall is the central hub of the school and is used on a daily basis not only for school but also community events. To this end the trust set itself a target of £30000 to begin this work.

So far the total raised by September 2018 for the hall is £14000. As a result we have now begun the process of refurbishment – but still need more funding for the project to be completed.

The Purbeck Hall renovation project has so far:

  • Redecoration of the front of the hall
  • New state of the art audio system

What is still required:

  • Lighting rig and lights
  • Projector and screen
  • New curtains at the front and back of the hall

As indicated at the top of the page if you able to donate – even a small amount – it would greatly help and support the school in its goal to update the school hall.

Kind regards

Chairman of The Purbeck School Development Trust
