The next big fundraising event for the refurbishments of The Grange is our Summer Raffle with prizes worth over £4000.  Thanks again to all the parents, staff, governors, alumni and local businesses who have donated prizes.

Given the value of the prizes on offer, tickets will be £20 each*, with a total of 1,000 tickets (our absolute limit so once they're gone - they're gone!) You can make your purchase via the School Gateway or at a school event and you will be emailed with your raffle ticket later that week. For anyone who buys a ticket before half term (by midnight on Thursday 23rd May), we will draw a winner for the VIP tickets to a Dreamland event in 2024, on the last day of this half term (Friday 24th May) as we want the winner to have the choice of as many of their events as possible. Final tickets for the main draw need to be bought by midnight on Sunday 14th July. The draw for all the other prizes will take place on the final day of the summer term on Friday 19th July.

Here's the list of prizes. We hope that there's plenty here to tempt you to buy a ticket or two!
