We aim to improve equality through education by doubling bursary provision by 2020.


Funding for £10 million bursary provision:

£6 million Foundation funded

£4 million fundraising target

Gifts and pledges to date = £3.8 million



The school's founder, William Sevenoke, was determined to afford wider access to education for students from all walks of life. Six centuries later, nothing has changed. 

Today, bursaries are awarded to talented students irrespective of their family’s ability to pay school fees. Bursary expenditure has increased 30-fold over the past ten years and now 5% of students at the school receive bursary support.

In order to achieve our vision for bursaries we continue to build on close relationships with local schools, including a Gifted and Talented programme. In 2016 we formalised a new bursary initiative with The Royal National Children's SpringBoard Foundation to provide educational opportunities, and transform the lives of some of the more disadvantaged children from the Greater London area.
