The Edmund Rice Trust was set up in 1997 to “enhance College facilities”.
 
From a small beginning, £1,770 in the first year, the Trust has contributed almost £400,000 to enhancements to the College, including a superb Sports Hall-£210k, extended Science Block-£30k, up-to-date Technology Department-£20k, a new Classroom Block-£50k with state-of-the-art Modern Foreign Languages and Mathematics suites, and £20k upgrade of the College Hall. 
 
All these enhancements have been provided thanks to the generosity of Parents, Old Boys, Staff and Governors.
In 2011 the Edmund Rice Trust purchased ‘Outwood’ - the Brothers’ House - to provide new Sixth Form facilities for the College, supported by a grant of £700,000 through Wirral Local Authority. In order to make the purchase, the Trustees have taken out a massive £450,000 loan. We now have to repay this enormous loan. The benefits can now be seen as 'Outwood' opened as our new Sixth Form Centre in March 2013. Click here to view a selection of photographs from the official opening ceremony.
 
We therefore invite your personal support and commitment by making a regular contribution of just £10, £15, or £20 per month to the Edmund Rice Trust during the years ahead. With your continued generosity and support we have managed to repay our first £100,000 of the capital repayments within two and a quarter years!
