Your donations will help to go towards things such as:

  • design and technology materials

  • sport and playtime equipment
  • science resources
  • art resources
  • musical instruments
  • IT equipment and software
  • subsidising theatre trips

Virgin Money Donate - Annual Capitation Contribution

The Friends of St Margaret's Lee are also tasked with collecting annual capitation contributions from our families. The requested amount is £30 per child (or £15 if part-time in pre-school). This money insures us when things go wrong or need replacing. In the past 8 years, the return on these contributions has been significant, including a new heating system and boilers, a new KS1 roof, new toilets across the school. Please don't take the condition of the school for granted and make this contribution today. You can do this by clicking on the link below:
