In meeting the Objects of the Trust, including the incorporated subsidiary charities, the public benefit aim is to provide accessible first class education in the broadest sense for grantees, through the provision of academic, sporting, artistic and social activities which will enhance life skills. This is intended to assist all those receiving support through the Trust to develop and fulfil their potential, and to inculcate in them a lifelong desire to contribute to the wider community.
The Trust welcomes applications for grants and there are specific funds available for academic departments, pupils and for assistance with fees.
Assistance with the Fees for Education of Boys at the School
The annual amount of funds available for scholarship allocation will vary and applications will generally be means tested, but with a limited amount of funding available on a discretionary basis. The generosity of the legacy from Gordon Lindsay-White has enabled the scope of scholarship provision within the Trust to be extended.
Oakley Fletcher Fund
This fund was set up to assist pupils at the School to attend sports courses or to go on School sports tours. Guidance on criteria and on how to present an application can be provided by the Vice Master, who is also a Trustee.
Small grants are available each year to former pupils who undertake enterprising and valuable projects during a gap year. Guidance on criteria and on how to present an application can be provided by the Vice Master, who is also a Trustee.
Grants for Academic Departments and Sports
Heads of Departments and Masters in Charge of Sports may apply for a grant for specific items to assist with teaching and coaching which they would not be able to fund from their normal budgets. Applications should be made in writing to the Head Master.
