THE ECCLESBOURNE SCHOOL

Learning Together For The Future

Current Fund Raising project for 2017/18

Jubilee Court Social Space

The latest project is to redevelop a social space for students called Jubilee Court. This social space was last developed in 1977 (The old plaque is still there). Since that time due, to major building works the area has become dilapidated and drainage has become a problem. A campaign to raise student awareness has been undertaken with power point presentations to the School Council and in Assemblies and working with a Year 8 form, developing their ideas for this social space. The Foundation has provided an initial £5000 to undertake enabling works but considerable new funding is required to complete the project by 2018, the 60th anniversary of our school’s opening. Using design ideas from students we hope to transform the area to make a very pleasant social space with seating, planting and canopies. We hope to use it for fund raising with past and current student events including outdoor entertainment, musical events, hog roasts and PSFA events. If you were a student in 1977 the Foundation would like you to contact them to see if you would like a reunion in June 2018. We are also considering a company sponsorship Plaque in Jubilee Court, all interested companies and past students please contact the Community Liaison office on 01332 843267 or email info@ecclesbourne.derbyshire.sch.uk
