The Foundation was set up in 2015 and is overseen by its President, Lord Carter of Coles (OB) and a Foundation Board to ensure that it is transparent and fair.
The Foundation's aims are to widen the social mobility of the School and provide Scholarships and Bursaries to an increased number of talented pupils each year, as well as contribute to the continuous improvement of the School's facilities and equipment.
Generous donations from Old Brentwoods, parents and friends of the school enable us to provide valuable Scholarships and Bursaries to as many as 20% of our current pupils and the results have been, and continue to be, both astounding and rewarding. But we want to do more. Each year, several talented pupils are turned away and we want to make the Brentwood School education available to more than that 20%.
In the last financial year, this amazing generosity raised just over £150,000, but we need much more to fulfil our aims – it costs around £1 million to fully fund a single bursary in perpetuity.
Throughout the year, we run fundraising events and appeals to continue to raise these vital donations. We hope you will be able to join in the next one!
We ask you to consider making either a single donation or an ongoing monthly gift; there are many ways to donate. Please fill in the form below if you would like to give a one-off or regular donation. You can also find out about leaving a legacy by clicking on the link to the left of this page.
Your support will help us provide financial assistance to enable talented and gifted pupils to come to, or remain at, Brentwood through means tested Bursaries and whatever the size or type of your gift, it will make a real difference.
