Helping Hockerill - An Overview
Hockerill Anglo European College is proud to be one of the UK's top performing state day and boarding schools. It also has charitable status and our Parents Association ( Hockerill Parents and Friends) is a registered charity. The Hockerill Development Office works to build relations with the whole college community, including former and current students and parents and it encourages them to support important aspects of school life, such as building developments and faculty specific investments.
As our College is in its infancy, relative to many much older institutions, it does not yet benefit from significant patronage. The Development Office plays a vital role in coordinating the generosity of both its current and former pupils, families and friends. This support may be monetary or it may be a gift of time, skills or networks. All forms of support are very much valued and we are grateful for all help received.
This area of the website enables all interested parties to get involved - personally or financially - and also to become informed about the range of activities taking place to support the College.
There are a number of ways funds come into the College, open the sections below to find out more.
We are extremely grateful to all our supporters who are contributing to our projects. Gifts of any size make a big difference. If you would like to make a donation or get personally involved, please use this website to find out more about our fundraising goals or contact the Development Office for further details.
Thank you for your support!
Governors’ Community and Development Committee Chair
Hockerill Development Fund - Hockerill Anglo-European College is lucky to have incredibly supportive parents and friends. A major way in which parents, grandparents and friends have helped us in recent years is through supporting our Development Fund. Since 2006 the Development Fund has supported a variety of capital projects to directly benefit the students at Hockerill.
If you are interested in contributing to the Fund contact Rachel Lawson on 01279 658451 to discuss how you might like to contribute.
