To broaden our community by providing more funded places for talented and financially-deserving students

Foundation Awards are a new type of bursary, aimed to provide life changing opportunities. They offer support to families who would otherwise not be able to consider an independent education and who have clearly proven financial need.
Foundationers will demonstrate significant potential in one or more of Dean Close’s key areas of focus: Academic, Music, Sport, Art or Drama. They will have strength of character, a can-do attitude and will show the potential and willingness to contribute to school life.

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, in 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.

Please get in touch with Felicity Copp, Development Manager on 01242 267439 if you would like more information.

We wish The Class of 2019 every possible happiness and success in the future.
