As an innovative Independent School, offering a very different choice in education,
we depend on sponsorship to keep the school affordable and accessible.
Sponsoring the school can take many different forms,
all of which make a big difference to what the school can offer.

Sponsorship Options

Ongoing Sponsorship

The simplest option of all:
Sponsor us with a €25 monthly subscription!

Your money will go to our ongoing expenses and allow for a School Meeting budget.

Ongoing Sponsorship
Annual Sponsorship

Our most pressing needs in order to expand the school are

subsidised student placements and fairer wages for staff:

Sponsor a Student

It is our aim and passion to make WCSS accessible for all who need and wish to avail of this type of education.


This means providing a Solidarity Fund to aid those families in need:

 

  • Sponsor a Student: €4,500 comes close to covering the cost for one student placement.
    Anything above this helps to subsidise further placements, making our school accessible to all.

  • Solidarity Contribution: €2,250 would subsidise a placement in our lowest Membership Dues band for one year.

Sponsor a Student
Fairer Staff Wages

Fairer Staff Wages

WCSS's staff are dedicated to democratic, self-directed education. That's why they continue to work for minimum wage and/or are volunteering a huge amount of their hours since we opened. This is not sustainable, or fair.​​

Therefore we are looking for philanthropists to subsidise fairer staff wages:

  • €7,000 would allow us to raise one staff member's salary from minimum wage to a living wage - with numbers based on 2023.

School Trips

School Trips

Regular school trips are an important catalyst for experiential learning. Previous school trips have included an archaeology field trip, a visit to a local inventor and a day trip to Dingle .

  • €500 would help pay for one school trip - transport alone for a day can be €450!
