Foundation Week, 1 - 7 July 2017
We are delighted to launch a brand new initiative at the Vaughan at the end of this term. Foundation Week, running from 1 - 7 July, will see a range of events dedicated to celebrating the work of the Vaughan Foundation. We will be encouraging participation from the entire community to help us to build on the past successes and continue to expand opportunities for all pupils at the Vaughan in the future.
We shall kickstart the week with the annual Old Vaughanian Summer 5-a-side, held on Saturday 1 July and the Summer Fete on Sunday 2 July at Twickenham playing fields. Pupils will participate in sponsored walks and runs during their games afternoons the following week with every Form Group also taking part in fundraising activities together. The full programme of events will be published soon.
The Vaughan Foundation is an integral part of our school. Over the past ten years each and every pupil has benefited from its work. The support provided by the Foundation ranges from grants for music tuition, school trips and sports tours, to supporting the two-week long extended curriculum programme, to name but a few examples. Last year alone, the Foundation provided grants amounting to £85,000, greatly enhancing the experience for our pupils.
We hope that Foundation Week will give parents, pupils, staff and Old Vaughanians the chance to work together, so that we can continue to develop our pupils to their highest potential.
We look forward to seeing many of you in July and thank you for your continued support.
Every year the School produces the Vaughan Foundation Annual Report, with the latest version emailed to all parents and Old Vaughanians on 11 November 2016.
