QUEEN STREET SCHOOL PRESERVATION TRUST 

The Trust manages the Wilderspin National School, focused on the life of Samuel Wilderspin, which has museum status and is an educational, heritage and community centre for the people of Barton, visitors, schools and educational historians. The Trust also manages The Joseph Wright Centre, the former Salvation Army Citadel next door, which is being developed into a venue for the performing arts.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • This charity has been successful in attracting volunteers relative to its size
  • A significant proportion of recent income was derived from major grant makers including the Government
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • This charity does not have a Conflict of Interests policy

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
  • Income has been volatile and on several occasions in recent years less than spending
Established: 29 years
