School Clubs

A School Club will be sponsored and nurtured by an existing SIGBI Club, who will liaise with the School about what the activities of the School Club will be and work towards its Charter.

A School Club will pay a small annual administration fee to SIGBI (currently £20 per annum), but Membership Fees will not be payable.  The “Members” of a School Club, who are likely to be under 16 (although students can be Members until they leave school at 18), will not be recorded in any way by SIGBI.

Please see the School Clubs guide for details:

Supporting Documentation
