Whitgiftian Association Bursary Appeal

“At Whitgift, I think I can achieve something I never thought possible” Ryan, Lower First

Whitgift has a tradition of educating boys who show promise, ability and a love of learning, regardless of their background. It has evolved into one of the country’s leading independent day schools, offering remarkable opportunities to boys who are fortunate enough to attend. Bursary provision is however increasingly limited with the result that fewer boys from low-income families are able to benefit from a Whitgift education.

“The teachers are just fabulous and extremely clever. Sports at Whitgift are just the best. I had never picked up a hockey stick before but now thanks to the coaching I am in the C team. I just love Whitgift and everything about it” Go Whitgift! Miles, Upper First

The Whitgiftian Association has set up a Bursary Appeal to raise funds to provide financial assistance to local boys that have met the high admission standards but whose families cannot afford the fees. Given the extraordinary co-curricular and enrichment opportunities the School provides, it is vital it remains accessible to talented and gifted youngsters from Croydon.

“This time last year I was dreaming of coming to Whitgift and now my dream has come true” Brook, Lower First

With your help, a deserving Croydon boy can realise his dream of a Whitgift education. We have raised nearly £40,000 to date from the generosity of Old Whitgiftian’s. Please join them by making a donation online or calling Naomi on 020 8688 9222 x2371.

We would love to hear from you if you could contribute to a successful fundraising event by donating high quality auction prizes or hosting an event at your club or home.
