We are always looking to improve the school and ensure that your child has the best learning experience and the best opportunities to participate in extra-curricular activities.
Direct government funding to schools can only do so much and the reality is we continue to require additional sources of funds to help us with the ‘extras’ our school needs. This is why we need your direct donations.
We are very grateful to those parents who have contributed to the Future Fund – the name we give to fundraising at Wycombe High School – throughout their daughter’s time at the school, and we thank you for your generosity over the years.
We ask others to please consider this option, every donation really does makes a difference.
We have a strong tradition of parental giving which has enabled us to plan and deliver new state-of-the-art facilities. Regular giving to the Wycombe High School Fund plays a vital role in upgrading our school and facilities which enhances the education of every one of our students.
Launched in 2011, the ‘Play Your Part’ for Music campaign raised a phenomenal £1.6 million for the Music Centre which was opened in 2016 by HRH The Duke of Kent.

Upgrades to Computer Suite, Graphics Room and Food Facilities.
Over the past few years all of the 1950s science labs have been upgraded, the most recent two in summer 2021. These upgrades have been funded by parental donations, matched funding by the school and grants from the Wolfson Foundation. This transformation has been welcomed by students and staff and provides modern facilities for science and theory, learning and teaching.
Wycombe High School continues to implement its ten-year site development plan. Each year we target specific projects that enhance resources for teaching, learning, attainment and safeguarding the school. These would not be possible without external funding.
Fire Doors & Precautionary measures (£348,000)
Heating/Boiler & Lighting upgrades (£600,000)
Yes, and we continue to pursue these routes, too, and in many cases have successfully done so. Over recent years we applied for, and were awarded £1.9M in grants, for the Miller Block Window Replacement Project; the Christie and Downs Window Replacement Project; the Music Centre; Performing Arts Studios; a Zoned Heating System for the Gym and Performing Arts Studios, roof replacement project for Miller / Sixth Form, Sports Hall and Drama.
Only in a positive way. We will be able to put in place the resources that we feel are key to supporting your daughter’s education at Wycombe High School. Your daughter will leave us as a confident and inspired young woman, equipped with the educational and social skills to meet the demands of the 21st Century. Thank you for supporting Wycombe High School.
