How are Expeditions funded?
Parents are not expected or even allowed to pay for the expedition, and all costs incurred by the project should be met by the students’ own efforts during fundraising events. Provider costs are typically up to £2000, with additional costs varying due to kit already owned. Fundraising is encouraged both in and out of Sixth form and support is given throughout the project. Parents act as guarantor to the project costs and are regularly informed of fundraising progress throughout.
Expedition fundraising is tough and we often seek sponsorship from both local and national companies. Sponsorship does not always have to be about monetary donations, and help with ideas and opportunities are always welcome. If you feel that you could offer us support, in any form, then please contact Miss Anderson or Mr Stapleton.
