After 30 years at Dean Close School, Julie Kent retired last summer. In her last year she set herself a target to leave a legacy and raise money to support a child through Dean Close School. In light of this, we are delighted that Julie has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours lists 2020 for services to charity.

Click the button below to give online or download a donation form, to support the Julie Kent Foundation Award. As Julie mentions in her video, she would love for us all to join together and for £30 a month for 30 months, you could make the world of difference to a deserving child:




Your donation will help to provide a transformational bursary to a child that would not be able to consider an independent education without our help. A child with financial need and with the potential to really participate in, and benefit from, their time at Dean Close.

After joining Dean Close School in 1990, Julie had a massive impact on Dean Close and the many children in her care. Please show her how appreciative you are by contributing to this campaign.

Every pound we raise, will be match funded by the Dean Close Foundation, pound for pound.

Thank you.
