Sponsorship is a unique way of supporting the Academy. Increase positive association and awareness of your family, business or organisation, by having your logo, advert or name displayed through sponsorship support at various events and in school publications and online channels.

Organisations who sponsor any school activities or facilities can claim tax relief for sponsorship payments providing the payments are made wholly and exclusively for the purpose of your trade.
