10 For 1 Bursary Fund
We are very mindful that Kingswood was originally founded to offer an education to young people who would not normally be able to afford such a rich and varied educational experience. All donations to the Bursary Fund, both large and small, can be used to make a difference and help ensure that many more children have access to this education.
Kingswood School launched the Ten for One Bursary Fund in 2017. It is designed to enable gifted young people who are particularly suited to the type of education Kingswood offers to attend the School in a situation where their parents would not be in a financial position to pay the fees.
The Fund is very simple. 10 people pledge £100 per month each for seven years, thereby funding one day pupil at Kingswood for seven years from Year 7 to 13. The fund is specifically aimed at parents who will require a full (100%) bursary for their son/daughter to benefit from a Kingswood education.
Thanks to the generosity of 10 Old Kingswoodians, Parents, Governors and the widow of an Old Kingswoodian, the first recipient of a 10 for 1 bursary started at Kingswood School in September in 2018.
Six of the ten people required to fund the second 10 for 1 Bursary have already very kindly pledged their support, leaving a further four required to fund the second 10 for 1 Bursary for a deserving pupil starting in Year 7 in September 2020.
