We would be most grateful if you are able to support our Centenary Appeal, to help raise funds for the next stage of development for Ermysted’s Grammar School. The school continues to grow in terms of pupils with a roll now in excess of 800. The next building project is to provide Sixth Form facilities appropriate for a school such as Ermysted’s, with approaching 250 boys now studying for A-levels. The school has planning permission for the project but insufficient funds to authorise work to commence. Old Boys have already contributed £30,000, but we need at least a further £20,000 to meet the amount the school will have to put towards the overall cost. Any contributions will be greatfully received – you can make a donation on the day of the event, or enclose some extra money along with the cost of your 40 Years On ticket.
