A new Climbing Wall for students and the Community

Help raise funds for a new state of the art climbing wall in Hungerford

John O’ Gaunt School is raising funds for a new, state of the art climbing wall that will benefit the whole community. Due to its unique position in the rural town of Hungerford, the school has the privilege of serving its locality as well as students. ‘JOG’s daily, working, whole-school ethos of ambition, care and courage now includes exciting new plans for a high-quality climbing wall, which the Parent Staff Association (PSA) are currently fundraising for.

JOG School already shares several of its facilities with the town – including the independently run Leisure Centre, Hungerford Youth Club, the 3G Football pitch, and other local groups such as The Community of Hungerford Theatre Company, art clubs and sporting groups.

The education sector’s laser-focussed trend to fund education means a school’s position and investment in the wider community and shared community facilities often fall by the wayside. For a school in JOG’s unique position within the town of Hungerford and the satellite villages and hamlets it serves (from Kintbury, Inkpen, Lambourn, Great Shefford, East Garston, Aldbourne and more) this is important, and something they are not willing to relinquish!

The new Climbing Wall would benefit the rural area, where such opportunities are often limited and far apart.
