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
For more information or an informal discussion about the Bursary and Donation Governorship Scheme please contact the Development Office on: T: 01403 247588 or E: firstname.lastname@example.org

Second Blue Fund Target Achieved - 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.
