New Welfare Bus

We are currently looking to support Collingwood School and Media Arts College in obtaining a welfare bus. This bus would be used by the Community Teachers in Collingwood Connect. Collingwood Connect is a special service which provides community teaching for those pupils that are not yet ready to access the school site due to their complex needs. A member of Collingwood teaching staff will drive around the County delivering specialist teaching to those that require it. Welfare buses currently cost in the region of £35,000.

New Garden Room

We are fundraising to build a wooden garden room in the Orchard of Collingwood School and Media Arts College. This will be a multi purpose room where staff will be able to meet parents, have meetings, provide therapeutic intervention in a quiet and calming environment. The garden room is estimated to cost in the region of £35,000.

Supporting Clark's Bog

We are working closing with Clark’s Bog to develop an educational and wildlife haven. We are looking to redevelop the visitors centre which has suffered damage to the roof and requires extensive work. We are also looking to assist the reserve to dig more ponds, lookout hides and seating areas.

Community Cafe

Collingwood School and Media Arts College are working with Active Solutions to open a community cafe on site from November 2020. The cafe will provide a space where members of the community can relax and unwind, enjoy a cup of tea/coffee/hot chocolate and a sweet treat whilst viewing a range of Collingwood merchandise and having a catch up with friends or family.

New Swimming Pool

The swimming pool at Collingwood was built in 2004. As a modular building it is starting to show it’s age. We are fundraising to replace the cabin with a new lodge and swimming pool. Swimming is a very important part of the curriculum at Collingwood School and pupils really enjoy their time in the pool. A replacement of the current facility would cost in the region of £170,000
