As economic and social inequality continue to grow in the UK, the role of education as a catalyst for change has become ever more critical.
Christ’s Hospital has pioneered social mobility in education for nearly 500 years. Our approach provides a proven model for transforming the lives of disadvantaged children in our society.
By providing first class, free or supported education to talented young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, Christ’s Hospital helps them to reach their full potential and transforms lives in a way that no other educational establishment in the UK can match.
Why we need your support
Our commitment to provide substantial bursary support exceeds the annual income from our endowment assets. Significant funding is now needed for Christ’s Hospital to continue to drive societal change.

Second Blue Fund Target Acheived - Thank You!
We have now reached our overall Blue Fund target of £190,000 to fund another child at CH! Your incredible support along with over 300 Old Blues, parents, staff and friends, has made this possible, demonstrating that joining forces and giving little and often can make a HUGE impact.
The £190,000 will provide a full 7 year bursary at Christ’s Hospital for another child in financial or other need. This child will be the second Blue Fund Pupil to benefit from the collective support of the whole CH community and will start at CH in September 2018
We will of course continue our fundraising to kick start a third Blue Fund which will offer a life-changing opportunity to another child in need. Our new fundraising target is set at £210,000 which, by joining forces, is achievable.
