The Warriner School

Funding and Development Office

Welcome to the Funding and Development Page

Update:  September 2018 - 

We are delighted to report that our swimming pool has been covered and heated so that it can be enjoyed by our students and the community all year around.

We are also planning to refurbish the changing rooms, making them suitable for swimming pool use and fully DDA compliant.  We will be submitting bids for grant funding and will hold fundraising events throughout the year.  

What a transformation - before and after!

It has been a very busy time at The Warriner with a number of significant developments planned for this year.    Design work for the school expansion is almost complete, our sports facilities will soon see a major revamp and our roof replacement project is finally going ahead.   These projects have been years in the planning and it will be fantastic to see them come to fruition in 2019!   

In total the school will see an investment of £6.1m over the next year.  However we do not intend to rest on our laurels as there is still much to do.    Esther Rolls, our Development Officer, will continue to seek funding for school improvement projects over the coming year.

School Expansion Gathering Pace….

The background work is gathering a pace on our new English, DT and Science block. This is due to be completed by September 2020 and is funded by Oxfordshire County Council in response to the need for us to expand our pupil numbers. The £6m state of the art two storey block, which will be located at the back of F Block, consists of ten classrooms, one graphics room, two fully equipped DT workshops and two science labs. The architect’s drawings continue to be available for any of you who would like to see them.

Expansion Elevations

We did it!! … Multi Sports Games Area

Our old netball courts will soon be transformed into an all-weather, floodlit multi-sports facility.  This exciting project will see the courts doubled in size and resurfaced creating four Tennis courts, three Netball courts, three 5-a-side Football pitches and a junior sized Football pitch that can be enjoyed all year around.

We have worked tirelessly to secure £200,000 for this development and it promises to be a fabulous asset for both our students and the local village community.  Work is due to start early 2019 and we have many local clubs eagerly awaiting its completion.

Finally….roof replacement project   

We are delighted to report that we were successful in our most recent Condition Improvement Grant bid to replace significant areas of our roofs at a cost of over £800k.  Work commenced in July and was completed over the summer.
