Schools Building Fund

The Diocese of Shrewsbury provides 115 schools to serve the needs of some 41,000 children who are educated in the Catholic religious tradition to high academic standards.

In return for the right to promote the Catholic Faith in our schools, 10% of the cost of building works and major repairs must be funded by the Diocese.  The Schools Building Fund helps to meet this cost, and parents of children at our schools are invited to make a voluntary contribution to help the Fund.  The suggested contribution is £15 per child per annum, but you are free to give more or less than this – your child will not be treated differently.

Thank you for your generosity.
