Project Report | Mar 18, 2024
March 2024

By Maura Duignan | Staff Member

These are exciting times for Sligo Sudbury School. Enrolments are increasing and our students are thriving. We will have our first official graduates this year which will mark a major milestone for our school.  

Since its inception the school has experienced exponential growth. There is a high demand for this model of education facilitated by dedicated, professional staff. Our school currently serves 85 children and by 2032, we plan to grow to a community of 240; 215 students and 25 staff.

In order to meet the demand we have planned to expand and develop our site and buildings to create a Centre of Excellence for Self-DIrected Democratic Education. 

In 2022 we secured donations of €165,000 to help us to complete the first phase of project. Our benefactors feel strongly that education needs to change in order to protect and enhance children’s creativity, enterprise, and wellbeing, and that self-directed education is the most powerful means to achieve this. These were significant donations for which we are most grateful. 

These donations enabled us to purchase a site and develop the design for our new school. We are now seeking additional supporters to help us to complete phase two of our project and would like to invite you to become a benefactor of Sligo Sudbury School.

We are very happy to report that our application for planning permission to expand and develop our school has been approved by the authorities. Our fundraising campaign has been launched with the goal of raising €4 million to complete the renovation and additional buildings. 

We have set up a separate project for these funds. Read all about it at https://goto.gg/62960 and in the attached Funding Proposal. 

In the meantime we have been busy starting our very own school podcast. It is called Self-dIrected Life and is hosted by two of our senior students. You can find us on Spotify.  

With gratitude, 

Sligo Sudbury School
