Foundation Awards are a new type of bursary, created to provide life changing opportunities to families who would otherwise not be able to consider an independent education.
Recipients or ‘Foundationers’ will demonstrate significant potential in one or more of Dean Close’s key areas of focus:
Foundationers will have strength of character, a can-do attitude and will show the potential and willingness to contribute to school life and a clearly proven financial need.
The Class of 2019 Foundation Award – a parent-driven scheme to leave a legacy remembering this year’s leavers, by supporting a talented and deserving pupil through Dean Close. Leavers’ parents joined together in this fashion last year and, with match funding from the School, this September The Class of 2018 Foundationer will join the Lower Sixth: a young man who would not have been able to consider attending Dean Close without their support.
You can donate any amount of your choosing or none; of course there is no obligation to give, and we will respect your decision either way.
We wish The Class of 2019 every possible happiness and success in the future.
