Ways to support the College
The support of parents, charities and the wider community is vital to the success of St Richard Reynolds Catholic College. Almost all of the cost of building, developing and maintaining the College has been funded by grants and donations. There are lots of ways to support the College:
As a Voluntary Aided (VA) school, the responsibility for maintaining our buildings and facilities rests with the Governing Body. We are very reliant on the generosity of parents and friends to ensure there is sufficient money both for routine maintenance and to help towards the long-term development of the College. The fund also helps us maintain and nurture our specialism in Music for which we receive no state funding and has paid for many other items such as our mini buses. Every penny goes towards improving the educational facilities here.

You can make a one-off or regular donation at Virgin MoneyGiving
