Make an application to the SIS Spirit Fund

Established in 2019, the SIS Spirit Fund is dedicated to supporting academic excellence and innovation, campus regeneration activities, and enhanced learning opportunities that enrich students’ experience. 

The SIS Spirit Fund is open to applications for funding from students, parents or guardians of students, and members of staff, or any group comprising a mixture of the three.

Applications may be made at any time, and each will be considered on its own merits, taking account of the impact of the project within our community or in the wider world, the reach it will have in terms of community involvement, and other factors relevant to the specific scope of the project.

You may apply for any amount. The SIS Spirit Fund may choose to grant the full amount, a proportion of the amount, or may choose to decline the application or ask for it to be modified. The duration of a project should not exceed 18 months, though it will be possible to apply again at the end of that time.

Please complete and submit the form below to initiate the application process.


What kind of projects does the Fund support?

Here are three previous examples corresponding to the three focus areas for the SIS Spirit Fund.

Academic excellence and innovation

The creation of our Makerspace environment, that encourages imaginative thinking among students when it comes to problem-solving, makes a direct impact through its innovative methods.

Enriched student experience.

The Nepal Project, which has been running at SIS for some years, was supported by the Spirit Fund. The Project encourages cross-curriculum discovery, and makes a significant social impact in the world.

Campus regeneration and improvement

The SIS Spirit Fund made it possible to add to the lighting equipment available to our choir and drama performances, to improve our ongoing level of resource and giving current students a better experience.
