Why does College need my support?

Unlike many other schools, College does not have an endowment fund to draw from to invest in our estate, our resources or our bursaries programme. We rely on the generosity and support of like-minded people, those who share our commitment to academic excellence and wish to see College flourish.

In education, where inspirational teaching is a competitive advantage, there are significant costs associated with having the best people working at College. People are our greatest asset – and our greatest expense. Salaries and benefits for teachers and staff make up approximately 75% of our annual budget. Simply put, quality is expensive.

Without fundraising, College will not be able to make the investments necessary to ensure that College remains a world-leading school in this century, as it was at the turn of the twentieth century. Please help us realise our vision.
