We are working closely with our supportive partners, parents, businesses, PTA and the College Charity Committee to develop an effective fund-raising strategy.
We aim to raise funds for all curriculum areas, to enhance the reality of the World of Work with academic excellence into the daily lives of our students.

Our aim is to advance the education of all pupils at the Bourne Community College by providing the best resources and improving facilities at the college.

Currently, we are fundraising across the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths) subjects, and want to build on this.

We would like to move forward with Computing and Engineering using 3D printers and CNC machining. This is an exciting area in which students build and compete in our Greenpower racing car project and our local schools drone challenge.

supporting steam

The Friends of Bourne are actively raising funds for STEAM. Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics.

Over a number of years we have developed several links with Industry and Further Education – our aim is to promote a pathway at Bourne Community College to inspire students onto future careers and professions in the areas of STEAM. We also recognise the skills shortage that exists in the STEAM sector and so are keen to promote this exciting area for the future. To support our students, STEAM is taught across all age groups and students are given many opportunities to visit sites and enterprises such as the INEOS – the Ben Ainsley sailing project.

Silverstone Action

It was a privilege to take part in The Greenpower Trust finals at Silverstone, and an amazing experience to visit the home of the British Grand Prix. Our students enjoyed working with the Engineering apprentices from our sponsors, Stannah, and gained an insight into a future in Engineering. Students took turns to drive the car on the iconic circuit. Unfortunately, a late puncture prevented us from beating our position from last year, but overall, it was an excellent day, enjoyed by us all.
