Our mission has been to pioneer social mobility and challenge social inequality to provide an unrivalled start in life for disadvantaged children for nearly five centuries. As economic and social inequality continue to grow in the UK, Christ’s Hospital’s mission is ever more relevant.
By providing first class, free or supported education to talented young people from all backgrounds, our mission helps Christ’s Hospital pupils to reach their full potential and transforms lives in a way that no other educational establishment in the UK can match.
OUR MISSION ‘Challenge inequality by providing a nurturing, transformative education for young people from all backgrounds.’
THIS IS WHAT WE DO:
Provide a nurturing, transformative education for young people from all backgrounds.
THIS IS WHY WE DO IT:
The generosity of our benefactors has built up a valuable endowment over the centuries. However, Christ’s Hospital’s commitment to provide more bursary support than any other independent boarding school in the country exceeds the annual income from its endowment assets.
Philanthropy therefore remains central for Christ’s Hospital to continue to transform lives for future generations.
