New Minibuses for Charters

22nd Sep 2021

We are so pleased to tell you that earlier this week we took delivery of three brand new minibuses to replace our ageing fleet. The new vehicles are being leased as a result of the generosity of parents who participate in the school’s regular giving programme.

The Children with Special Needs Foundation kindly donated £2100 towards leasing a vehicle with wheelchair access and ePartners also donated £1000 towards the initiative.

Mr John Fletcher said, “The new buses will enable us to continue to develop our extra-curricular and super curricula programmes.  Not only will we be able to continue our extensive fixtures programme, Charters will also be able to increase the number students who have access to local universities, work experience, theatre visits, school visits and competitions around STEM. Thank you to all the parents who have contributed to the new buses which will have a lasting impact across the school community.”

We understand that not every family is able to contribute, but the impact of a large number of small donations can be transformative. If you are able to support this initiative by donating a regular amount each month, please use this link which will take you directly to our CAF Donate page.

If you are a UK taxpayer, please tick the Gift Aid box. This will allow us to claim an additional 25p for each £1 donated and won’t cost you anything extra; in fact, higher and additional rate taxpayers can claim a tax reduction on their donation.

All donations make a difference and have a lasting impact across the school community.

Thank you.
