Children and parents, past and present, from Highfield and Brookham Schools in Liphook recently gathered to help plant 46 new beech trees in the school grounds helping to raise £15,369.60 for the Highfield School Centenary Bursaries Fund.
St Swithun’s School in Winchester is aiming to provide two full bursaries every year to girls through its recently re-launched Bramston Bursary Foundation. Working with its partner charities and the local authority, St Swithun’s will identify girls who are living in care or at home on the brink of going into care, but who would thrive emotionally and academically in the stability of the boarding school environment at St Swithun’s.
Social mobility takes precedence at Kingston Grammar School.
One of the country’s leading independent schools has announced plans to increase dramatically its bursary provision, widening access to those who would not otherwise be able to attend.
