Parental Contributions

As a Voluntary Aided School, Archbishop Tenison’s School has to have a fund to supplement the funding it receives from the Government through the local authority. This fund enables Governors to carry out a number of tasks essential to school life.

Diocesan School Maintenance Fund
The Borough of Croydon does not maintain our buildings. The Governors have to ensure that the buildings remain fit for their educational purpose. To do this, each year we pay into a maintenance plan arranged by Southwark Diocese for every child/student registered at the school. We also have a Service Agreement with the Diocese for insurance cover and other professional services.

Development Trust
For major projects, the Governors are usually required to pay 10% of the capital cost of building construction. This “top-up” funding is often the key to obtaining much larger grants for capital projects, so it is important that such money is available when needed. It is only through such support by parents and carers in the past, that Tenison’s exists in its present form today. Further information about the Development Trust can be found here.

School Fund 
School Fund helps with extra-curricular activities. It underwrites the costs of visits, and the purchase of prizes and awards for presentation evenings. It gives a budget to the School Council so that pupils learn democratic decision making and how to use money wisely.
