Facility hire for the community
Bridgnorth Endowed School has a number of facilities they offer for community use at a competitive hire cost. These facilities include a school hall, classrooms and football pitches.
Alongside room hire we are pleased to offer the hire of IT and presentation equipment as well as competitive rates for any catering requirements requested by hirers.
Sports pitches – The Friars
Our sports pitches are available to hire on evenings and weekends and during school holidays. Individual lettings of sports facilities are subject to VAT. However if the letting is for a continuous period of use exceeding 24 hours or there is a formal agreement for a series of lets to a club, school or similar body (not a private individual) where the periods of hire occur at regular and frequent intervals, it is not subject to VAT. The series must:
- Extend over the playing season for the sport or for three calendar months
- Consist of at least ten individual hire periods occurring not less frequently than once a fortnight, except for breaks caused by school holidays. The formal agreement must be such that the licensee is granted exclusive use of the sports facility during each period of hire.
The condition of the football pitch will always be checked before a booking is confirmed. If found to be in an unsuitable condition the booking will be cancelled by the school.
A permit will be issued to all hirers of the Friars pitches along with a key to the gates for emergency access. Vehicular access is not permitted in any other circumstance.
We are able to provide hospitality / full catering facilities for any internal or external bookings via our catering providers, Taylor Shaw. Please contact the Director of Business & Finance, Sue Underhill with your requirements in the first instance on 01746 762103.
School equipment is available for hire at the discretion of the Director of Business & Finance. Equipment available for hire includes portable as well as fixed assets e.g. projectors in rooms, portable projectors, flip chart holders and flip charts, camcorders, digital cameras.
With regard to the hire of portable equipment it is the responsibility of the hirer to make good any damages or replacement if broken beyond repair or lost / stolen.

This will provide cover for injury to staff and public, and damage to school premises, arising from the negligence of the hirer or hiring group. Proof of this insurance will be required at booking. No booking will be permitted without this insurance cover.
