About Us

At Preston Primary we have started a new exciting project. We want to convert our school field into an all weather, astroturf 2G pitch. Ideally we want to complete our fund raising to have the pitch installed by next Summer. This will have a big impact on school life for our children. This will enable us to run sporting events all year. Children will be able to play in this space every day, not just dry days. We want to share the space with local community groups and other schools. Our children will be able to play and compete against children from other schools. It will impact immediately, and be a wonderful asset for the years to come.

We have a professional bid writer seeking to gain financial support from organisations such as Sport England. We also have a large amount of funds allocated from our Coast Academies financial reserves. Unfortunately, due to the high cost of such projects, all this is not enough. Therefore, we are looking at other ways to get the funds to bring this exciting project to completion.

One idea is that local companies could advertise around the edge of the 2G pitch. This is something that other schools and organisations have done before. Is this something that you might be interested in, or you know a local company that would? We already have Expressions of Interest from numerous local companies, which is great news!

If you are not in a position to support us through advertising, but would still like to help the project, we would love that. We believe that together we can reach our financial goal, and make a sporting venue for future generations of Preston pupils. 

Please Donate or organise your own sponsorship idea through this website.

Many thanks,

Mr Scott Ord
