Ann’s Grove Secondary:

We have been working with the school to raise pupils’ achievement levels by providing textbooks and materials in specific subject areas.

We are happy to report that the school has seen a small but important rise in the number of grade 2 passes in these departments and anticipate that the increased number of text books available to students from 2016 will see those numbers rise.

In 2012, the Trust provided Ann’s Grove Secondary School with a stereo MP3 player, DVD player, phonics DVDs, a microscope for the Science department and a gas cooker for the Home Economics department.

In 2013 we supplied the school with a photocopier, printer scanner, hand mixer, blender, literacy materials, specialist reading programmes, a router for the woodwork class and class set of biology textbooks.

In 2015 we provided the school with textbooks for Home Economics, Agricultural Science, Integrated Science and English. We also provided an electric planer and electric sander for the Woodwork class.

In 2016 we provided more textbooks for Agricultural Science and Integrated Science Departments.

We are happy to be able to say that the Head teacher reported a small but important rise in the number of grade 2 passes in these departments in 2015 and she anticipates that the increased number of text books now available to students will see those numbers rise.

We have now provided the Woodwork department with a complete set of high quality tools and they have made a number of decorative and practical woodwork items, which they will showcase and sell at an exhibition of students’ work in June 2016. They will continue to make pieces for the exhibition when time allows from exam requirements.

£20

could buy tools for an Agricultural Science class.
