Our school always prioritises our resources and facilities so that they work for the education of our children at our school. This is our professional duty and our absolute focus.

Even so, where we can support our local community by hiring our premises out then we are ready to do so.

These hirings have to cover our costs as all of our funding is for children’s education and it would be unacceptable for that money to be paid out to help fund local clubs and events to run.

Any income we generate from these lettings is re-invested in the school and the facilities we share with our community.

Indeed, we have significantly invested in the facilities so that our community can benefit from high-quality provision. Our theatre saw around £60,000 in investment to bring an extensive refurbishment in Summer 2022. Elsewhere, we secured around £750,000 in CIF funding through our academy status to replace the sports hall roof – which is also supporting insulation and heating systems – and to improve the site and safeguarding security.

The following facilities are potentially available to hire:

  • Astroturf
  • Sports Hall
  • Dance Studio
  • Playing Field
  • Theatre

The full details of our lettings can be found in our Letting Policy here.

If you have any enquiries about hiring our facilities then please email Jacqui Archer, our School Finance Manager, on lettings@friaryschool.co.uk.
