Life changing opportunities through bursary support
A bursary at Christ’s Hospital can offer a life changing experience for a young person, providing them with the values, skills and knowledge that they will need to thrive in an increasingly demanding and diverse world. With its highly developed infrastructure, including the pioneering pastoral care programme, Christ’s Hospital is able to provide a safe and nurturing environment for pupils from challenging backgrounds. This means that bursaries can truly benefit young people from all walks of life.
The exceptional opportunity presented by a bursary at Christ’s Hospital is made even more remarkable by the unique relationship that can form between the bursary supporter, the pupil and their family. This relationship can include mentoring, encouragement and practical support during the pupil’s time at Christ’s Hospital and throughout their life. For some pupils this involvement can be transformational in itself, especially where their home situation is particularly challenging or where a mentor can bring insight, networks and other “social capital” that may be limited in a pupil’s own environment.
Supporting a bursary pupil at Christ’s Hospital
There are four principle ways in which to support a young person in full throughout their time at Christ’s Hospital:
- Endowed bursary
- Full bursary from Year 7
- 6th Form bursary
- Blue Fund: Please visit our Blue Fund website for more information on how to join forces with others and, in partnership, help to fully fund a seven year education and boarding at Christ’s Hospital for a child in need.
- Donation Governorships

Over £10,800 raised on #GivingTuesday – Thank you!
Christ’s Hospital thanks everyone who made a gift to the Blue Fund on 29 November for #GivingTuesday. Nearly one hundred donors made a donation, raising over £10,800! This far exceeds our target of £5000 and we are enormously grateful for the generous support of parents, Old Blues, staff and other friends of Christ’s Hospital who made this possible.
This was the first year the Christ’s Hospital has taken part in #GivingTuesday, a worldwide initiative supported by the Charities Aid Foundation, to encourage support for UK charities. This resounding success has helped put us one step closer towards our £190,000 Blue Fund target of funding another pupil’s seven year education and boarding at Christ’s Hospital.
