What is crowdfunding?

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.


Linwood School is a special school; an outward facing, school of excellence, judged as ‘outstanding’ in our last five inspections.

Linwood School currently has five campuses supporting 320 children and young people.

We welcome children and young people from a wide geographical area and support a comprehensive range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities. We welcome diversity in culture, religion and ability and we value the contribution that every child and young person makes.

We offer a safe and supportive environment, as well as a personalised, relevant, innovative and motivating curriculums to meet a range of individual learning needs.All learning is outcome led promoting achievement, resilience, well-being, aspiration and meaningful future destinations.

Linwood School has many facilities one of which is our swimming pool where we provide lessons so that pupils gain water confidence and develop stroke techniques. Some of our students also use the facility for personalised hydrotherapy sessions. The pool also supports community swimming sessions.

The pool is now in urgent need of repair and refurbishment so we will be participating in sponsored Sahara Desert and Great Wall of China Treks to raise funds for the much needed work.

If we are unable to raise the funds then sadly we will be unable to maintain this valuable resource.

We appreciate this is a difficult time for individuals and companies alike, but if you are able to make a donation, however small, then this would be greatly appreciated.
