We have two bursary funds that create educational opportunity and broaden access to The Beacon; The Headmaster’s Bursary Fund and The Beacon Bursary Fund.
We are proud of our tradition of offering means-tested bursaries to bright and talented boys who we know will thrive at the school. The Headmaster’s Bursary Fund supports boys from less-advantaged backgrounds, and gives them the chance to access an exceptional education here at The Beacon, and to benefit from the many varied opportunities that such an education provides.
Bursary places at our school are life-changing for the pupils who receive them. We are so grateful to the parents, Old Beaconians and supporters whose donations help us to broaden access and ensure that The Beacon remains a true centre of excellence open to all.
We really appreciate each and every gift, no matter how large or small, as together they have a huge cumulative impact.
The Beacon Bursary Fund is a registered charity (number 310643) that runs independently of the School. It provides financial assistance for the education of pupils at The Beacon whose parents or guardians run into temporary financial difficulties, and who may otherwise have to withdraw their son from the school at a time that would be detrimental to their educational progress.
The Fund derives its income from parental donations (made as a voluntary contribution on the termly fee invoice), Gift Aid and investment income.
If you are in a position to give the gift of education to a child, please contact us. For most people, this is beyond reach during their lifetimes, however, a legacy of property or shares could help to make a very real difference to the life of a child in the future.
