Funded Projects 2013

In 2013 we were able to support the educational provision at Alleyn's with gifts towards the following areas:

Swimming Pool Cover

Swimming Pool Cover

Energy costs are one of the major budgetary factors in running the School. Using a bespoke pool cover every night should provide sufficient savings in electricity use to recover the outlay of approximately £25,000 in under four years. The funds for this cover were secured during the summer of 2013.

Swimming Pool Display Boards

As part of this refurbishment we will be installing a timing system for six lanes to include touch timing panels and false start monitors, plus display boards with multi-line result display.

Music School - New Practice Room Pianos

New Practice Room Pianos

During the summer of 2013 we created three new music practice rooms in an extension to the Hooper Music School. Each room required an upright piano. Total Cost: £19,500

Music Department - Master Classes

Music Masterclasses

Our pupils, and those from local schools, benefit enormously from the instrumental and voice master class workshops which have been offered in conjunction with the Alleyn's International Concert Series by such world class performers as the Dante Quartet, the Swingle Singers, the Heath Quartet and Thomas Gould and have proved of immense value to our best musicians. Total Cost: 1,500 per annum

PE Department - CV Equipment

PE - CV Equipment

Much of the equipment in the School's cardiovascular suite needs replacing and several new rowing and running machines are a priority.

The PE Department has identified commercial machines provided by such companies as Concept 2 and Life Fitness which are suitable for School gyms, are equipped with all the necessary training programmes, monitors and safety features which our pupils will need and which will last for years, aiding the training of our young athletes and increasing the aerobic fitness of our pupils.

We were able to fund two new machines in 2013.

Cost: approximately £6,000 per machine

Drama Department - Lighting Desk

Drama Lighting Desk

While the new theatre in the Edward Alleyn Building has become the main performing arts venue for the School, The Great Hall is still in constant demand for School and external performances, including the House music competitions and fundraising concerts which our pupils stage every year.

We have been able to fund a replacement with help of our generous donors.
