At the present time 12 pupils benefit from bursary places at Mill Hill or Belmont.
Each year we intend to increase that number, opening our doors to more and more talented children from less affluent backgrounds. The A Better Chance scheme is our principle means of reaching this goal in the short term, paying for on-going and additional means-tested places at both Belmont and Mill Hill.
However, we have also established a Bursary Endowment Fund to cover the cost of all assisted places in the future. The intent here is to use interest earnings from the fund to pay for 20 free places on a permanent basis. It will take some time to build up such a significant endowment ‘pot’ but - through legacies and a number of other generous gifts - we have already made a good start.
If you want to support the ‘ABC’ scheme you can make a one-off donation or set up a Direct Debit by clicking here. If you are interested in helping establish the permanent endowment fund with a legacy or other Leadership gift, please contact Nick Priestnall who will be happy to offer help and advice. Thank you.
