Some things to consider:


• Our goal is £100,000 and until we reach our target, we cannot install the seating, so we really need your help.

• There are 200 seats in total, which are subject to availability. Once they’re gone, they’re gone!

• Seat naming is for 5 years. Thereafter you will be offered first refusal to continue to name your seat after the initial 5 year period, at a further cost.

• Naming a seat does not guarantee that it will be available for you when attending a school show.


A £500 donation secures your seat (or 10 months x £50/month)

Ladies and Gentlemen, “Take Your Seats” as we ask for your support in helping to install new retractable theatre-style seating for 200 guests in the College Hall, as part of our improvement plan for the Campus. Converted into a gymnasium in 1935, the College Hall underwent further changes in the 1990s when Fr Adrian Porter SJ approved mechanical raked audience seating to be installed. However, since 2015, it has not been fit for purpose.  Dedicating a seat to someone makes a unique gift, whether to a loved-one or your family. Buy one for each of your children or your parents, or In Memoriam.

Please start a transformation in the heart of the College and support our “Take Your Seats” Appeal. By making a donation of £500 we will engrave your name on a plaque to be attached to each seat, which will be in situ for a period of 5 years. Seats will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and we will let you know where it is located.    Donate button


How your gift can add up:

• You can make a one-off gift of £500 for one seat. You may also buy multiple seats if you wish. 

• If you prefer to spread the cost of your gift, you can make a regular gift of £50 per month for 10 months.

• By ticking the Gift Aid Declaration, your gift will be worth an extra 25% at no cost to you and will help us reach our target faster.

• If you would like to discuss a larger gift, then please contact the Development Office.
