60th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign

Our 2019 ambition is to transform the ten 1959 Tower Block classrooms into modern, attractive spaces for the best possible learning. 

Building work will start on 28 May 2019 and we anticipate the project will be completed by the Autumn Term. 

With your generous support, we hope to raise £75,000 to contribute to the costs!

Why the Tower Block?

  • It is the highest priority on our Premises Improvement Plan
  • It presents a real opportunity to enhance teaching and learning
  • Maths and Geography are core subjects, so every student benefits
  • The Tower Block classrooms are the smallest in the school 

 

What we will do

  • Improve room layouts
  • Update IT facilities to fit in with 1:1
  • Install interactive display screens (with the kind help of AHSA)
  • Optimise storage facilities

 

 

We will also have:

  • New storage walls and better lockers
  • New heating
  • New lighting
  • New flooring
  • Better fire security

 

Please remember, every donation of whatever size helps, and every penny is put to good use!

The AHS School Fund

For many years now we have raised money for very valuable development projects from parents, alumni, the AHSA and other supporters of the school, via our ‘Building A Brighter Future’ AHS School Fund.

The AHS School Fund is our scheme where parents and alumni donate monthly by direct debit, or through a one-off donation.

It helps to develop the school’s facilities and resources to ensure that every girl is able to fulfil her potential, wherever her strengths lie.

These contributions have helped us to achieve so much for our students:

  • The Sports Hall
  • The Library
  • The Sixth Form Centre
  • The Dining Room
  • Netball/tennis courts and floodlighting
  • History and Languages classrooms
  • Sound and lighting in the Main Hall and Harding Hall
  • Boiler and roof replacements.

Please consider whether you can play your part in providing the best possible facilities for your daughter and for generations of AHS students to come. 

For more information, please download your AHS Donation Form  HERE or refer to our new online donation system

Every donation of whatever size helps, and every penny is put to good use – so please do take the time to consider how you can help.

Maximising Your Donations With Gift Aid

Through our charitable status, your donation can be boosted through Gift Aid!

When you complete your AHS School Fund Donation Form and sign the Gift Aid declaration, we can claim an extra 25p from HMRC for every £1 you donate.

Please sign the Gift Aid section of your donation  form – it makes a big difference to us!

For further information, please contact Mrs Pexton apexton@ahs.bucks.sch.uk

Matched Giving

Please check with your employer if they will match your donations to our AHS Fund!

Already parents are adding new companies to our Matched Giving List. Thank you!

Matched Giving is when a company matches the amount of fundraising an employee gives to a registered charity, as part of its CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility).

Many companies help charities through a matched giving scheme and some will match pound for pound the donations made by its employees to registered charities.

If you are donating to the AHS Fund, your donation may be matched by your employer through Matched Giving. Please enquire with your HR or Payroll department or contact Mrs Pexton for a list of companies we know participate in Matched Giving.
