“Our responsibility is to prepare all our pupils for the energy and competition they will face in their lives beyond school. Foundation Awards are key to this.”

Foundation Awards are bursaries funded by philanthropy, with the specific aim of giving talented and financially-deserving pupils access to a Dean Close education.

We are looking for latent potential. We are also keen to find the individuals who will not only gain great personal benefit from a Dean Close education but will also contribute to school life.

Why do they matter?

Foundation Awards change the lives of those who win them. More widely, they enrich our community. Sharing the fantastic opportunities we have here with others fits with our Christian values.

Our ultimate aim?

By 2050: to be able to offer a Foundation Award in every year of every House.
