Funding: Activities and Projects

The DSPA fund or co-fund a variety of activities and items that fall outside the scope of the School’s normal remit. The general criteria for funding is that the service or item to be purchased should be enriching and developmental for pupils. Inevitably, some requests for funding rather stretch the imagination in this respect, but we strive to be fair, consistent, and properly accountable for the funds we have raised from parents at the various events. Pupils and members of the academic and house staff are invited to submit funding applications to the DSPA annually. the DSPA Travel Scholarship is open to Sixth form Pupils who are invited to submit applications for travel sponsorships to the DSPA on an annual basis. All the money granted is through the generous support of all parents and extended families of Dauntsey's School.
