Bursaries - The Gift of EducationSUB MENU
The 'Gift of Education', as provided by our bursary fund, aims to provide opportunities to transform lives and raise aspirations but our vision can only be realised through the help of our friends and supporters.
We already have an immensely generous pledge of £110,000 a year from an anonymous donor. We are now aiming to raise a further £110,000 a year from the wider Leysian Community to support deserving young children from the Diocese of Ely and local Cambridge area with means tested bursaries. This will be "double-matched" by the school from its own resources. Our objective is to be in a position to fund at least two recipients per year-group on such bursaries which will be distributed via open, competitive application.
Such benefaction will not only offer many children the transformative gift of education, but serves also to enrich our school by enhancing academic and wider curricular standards. More importantly, we believe that a more socially inclusive School community is of benefit to all our pupils, not just those who would otherwise be unable to afford the benefits of a Leysian education.
