ADT – Year 7 Donation

Published on 1st September 2014

Dear Parent / Guardian,

Your child is embarking on fantastic learning journey within the Art, Design & Technology Faculty, and to enable them to have as diverse range of experiences as possible we ask all year 7 parents for a donation of £10 to cover some of the costs over key stage 3.

As I am sure you can appreciate the material costs across the subjects are a great expense for the school and this money will enable us to continue to pursue a more diverse and challenging curriculum, enabling pupils to build larger and higher quality outcomes than we would otherwise manage.

This contribution will also help towards the cost of some of the materials we will be providing your child such as a hardwearing A4 folder to carry their Computer Systems, Textiles, and D&T work in, an A3 folder to carry larger Art work in, together with an A4 bound sketchbook.

As a forewarning, children will also be following a Food Technology curriculum for 14 weeks of each year, where they will be expected to provide ingredients for the lessons. I am certain that the tasty dishes that return home will be appreciated however!

Please return the slip below with either a cheque (made payable to ‘The Fernwood School’) or cash in an envelope to your child’s Design & Technology teacher, who will provide a receipt if requested.

Please feel free to contact me at the school if you would like to discuss this further.

Kind regards,


Mr D. Jones
Head of Faculty
Art, Design and Technology
