STUDENTS did their bit to raise money to boost their school’s development plan.

Pupils from Tring Parks School For The Performing Arts took part in a Footprint Charity Walk launched by the school’s president Leopold de Rothschild on Friday, May 6.

Families, staff and governors were also invited to participate in the 10km stroll through the Chiltern countryside.

Principal Stefan Anderson said: “Tring Park is an exceptional school for those with a talent and passion for the performing arts.

“We want to continue to maintain and develop the facilities that we have here to ensure that we attract and nurture the best performers in the UK, and even the world.”

The walk launched the second phase of the school’s development project, which hopes to make £1.5million over the next three years.

The money will be used to increase access to the school and increase facilities by building a new sixth form centre, IT studio and art development.

The school also had good news in its recent Ofsted and Independent School Inspectorate (ISI) inspections.

Vocational attainment throughout the school was rated exceptional by ISI and teachers were praised by Ofsted for being knowledgeable and committed to getting the best from pupils.

Ofsted praised the school, which can have up to 320 pupils aged eight to 19, for “providing a nurturing environment which enables boarders to develop their talents.”
