Grant / Bid Writing

St Gregory’s Primary School

St Gregory’s Catholic Primary School in Stratford Upon Avon have a swimming pool used by all their pupils as well as parent & toddler groups but they had no changing rooms. This caused a real headache for the school, children were having to walk through the school after their swimming lessons to get changed in their classrooms!

School budget was incredibly tight so we aided in finding them a grant suitable to pay towards the cost of refurbishing and having changing rooms installed.

We were successful in obtaining the school £9500 of lottery funding that enabled the school to procure the works. The project was completed within a three week period with no disruption to the school.

The school now have changing rooms not only for their pupils but for members of their local community who use this facility.
SJ Solutions met with us to discuss how we could secure funding to help us with our swimming pool changing rooms in school. We had no facilities and we really needed a space for the children to get changed in. They sourced a grant, wrote the bid for us and were successful in obtaining us £9500 from lottery funding. This was a huge help and they then went on to obtaining us quotations for the refurbishment and then project managing it when the refurbishment took place. All in all it was a fantastic service that had minimal impact on the school yet has created such a brilliant facility.
