Capital Grant Bids

If you are a voluntary aided school and you require funding for a capital project, please use the form below to submit your application.

Capital Grant Application Form - 2021/22

The grant will be paid directly to the Diocese and not through the Local Authorities as has been the case in the past. It is therefore essential that you complete the Capital Grant Application Form for any capital projects you wish to carry out in the next financial year.

Due to continued funding constraints, this round will have to give priority to CONDITION - related projects. However, depending on the allocation of funding and the number of bids we receive, it may be possible to consider schemes which have both condition and suitability issues.

We urge you to refer to your Asset Management Plan, and your School Development Plan to determine your priorities. Please also consider any recommendations arising from surveys that have been carried out and any recommendations from your Statutory Testing and Inspecting regimes.

To ensure the your proposed project meets Building Regulations and Health and Safety requirements, as well as being professionally costed, we require you to engage the services of professional consultants.

Your fully completed and signed form, with supporting documentation attached, should be returned by email to

The deadline for completed bids is Friday, 18th December 2020. If however, you have difficulty meeting this deadline or an urgent issue arises at your school after this date please contact us for advice.
