Weʼre raising £100,000 to support the children of Bolder Academy; a new mixed secondary school opening this September, adjacent to the Sky Campus in Hounslow.

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Sky was born and raised in Hounslow, a vibrant multi-cultural community. Faced with a critical shortage in school places, as part of the redevelopment of its West London campus, Sky has worked with a group of local head teachers to create an exciting new secondary school for boys and girls of all faiths and none. We are raising funds for the small things that can make a big difference to the students, from sports & play equipment to creating a library. Our goal is to raise £100,000 by the time the first pupils walk through the door this September.
We are in the process of setting up a registered charity but in the meantime the raised funds will go directly to the school that carries charitable status. The funds will all go to the benefit of the children. Below are some examples of what the funds will be used for.
£40,000 - Mobile Creative suite of equipment for entire class (computers, tablets, software)
£30,000 - A School Minibus
£15,000 - A Library (including over 1000 books and literacy software)
£5,000 - Outdoor class kit of sports equipment
£1,000 - Vegetable garden for Academy
£500 - 2-day residential school trip for 5 students
£250 - Learning equipment for students with special educational needs
£150 - Art materials for a class.
