Since its establishment in 1719, Andrews’ Endowed CE Primary School has been fortunate to benefit from the dedication and stewardship of a group of locally appointed individuals known as Trustees. These individuals play a crucial role in managing the small trust fund left by our school’s founder, Thomas Andrews.

A Legacy of Support

The funds entrusted to the Trustees originate from the “fee farm rents” paid by tenants occupying lands and properties owned by Thomas Andrews. Originally intended to finance the establishment of the school, hire school staff, and cover day-to-day operational expenses, the legacy fund continues to serve the school community today.

Ensuring Financial Stability

Our current Trustees diligently oversee the management of the trust fund, meeting at least termly to discuss how best to support the school’s needs. Their responsibilities include exploring avenues to provide financial assistance for special projects and initiatives that enhance the educational experience of our students.

Investing in Excellence

In recent years, the Trustees have generously contributed funds to various projects, including the purchase of furniture for new classrooms, the installation of AV equipment and stage lighting in the school hall, and the ongoing effort to refresh classroom furniture. Their support enables us to create a dynamic learning environment that inspires creativity and innovation.

Supporting Families in Need

In alignment with Thomas Andrews’ original vision for the school, the Trustees also extend their support to families facing financial hardship. Through small bursaries, they ensure that every child has the opportunity to participate in valuable learning experiences, such as the Year 6 Residential Visit, regardless of their financial circumstances.

Get Involved

As stewards of tradition and innovation, our Trustees embody the spirit of community and generosity that defines Andrews’ Endowed CE Primary School. Their commitment to excellence and inclusivity strengthens our school community and ensures that every child has the opportunity to thrive.

Together, we can continue to uphold the values of Thomas Andrews and enrich the lives of future generations through education and support.
