Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire has donated £750 to Boroughbridge High School to go towards a much-needed classroom IT refresh.

The donation is being used towards an update for some of the school’s classrooms and will allow them to buy new classroom IT equipment.

The local comprehensive school has just under 500 11 to 18-year-old pupils from Boroughbridge and surrounding area and has been an important part of the community since it opened in 1982.

Headteacher Kathryn Stephenson said: “We are a small school, and we are very grateful for Taylor Wimpey’s donation.

“Updating our classroom IT equipment will really help enhance our students’ learning.”

Steven Ball, Sales and Marketing Director at Taylor Wimpey North Yorkshire, said: “The school is at the very heart of the local community and it’s fantastic to be able to help them refresh their classrooms.

“We know schools are having to find new ways to raise money due to COVID-19 stopping fundraising events, so we are delighted to be able to help out during this time.”

Boroughbridge High School is located near to Taylor Wimpey’s Aldborough Gate and Bondgate developments.
