What Makes Christ's Hospital Unique?

This unique School paves the way for a lifelong impact of future success and achievements.

When pupils leave CH their deep connection to the School continues wherever the world takes them. 

We asked Old Blues (alumni), parents and friends to discuss what makes Christ’s Hospital unique and the lasting impact it has upon them:


Bob Judson
"The best thing about CH is the opportunity it provides." "
"CH Charitable mission is central to its whole being …to provide an education for underprivileged children. It still does this today … and it’s a fantastic start in life for anyone that has the privilege to be here."
David Bawtree
"CH stands for excellence in all forms of education."
"I wouldn’t have done the things I have done without the education I received here.
Jenny Thomson
"Offering a first class education to children from all walks of life, regardless of who they are, where they’ve come from, how much money they have – everybody’s equal"

Sir John Daniel OC
“My time here was the making of me!"
"It’s important that Old Blues like me who have benefitted from what they got here, continue to contribute and encourage their fellows to contribute.”


Judy Evans
"For people who are interested in giving opportunity to bright young people who wouldn’t otherwise have that opportunity – this is the place!"

Simon Chadwick
"The philosophy that guides it is the most unique thing – which is really around the belief in equity.  Given the same opportunities, people from different backgrounds can achieve great things and then give back to their society.  That’s what CH is about!"

Stuart Manser
"The whole being of the School is such that it is doing good and helping people who are less fortunate.  That to me is the most important aspect!"

Tony Cork
"Christ’s Hospital stands for education and the very important task of educating children for the future"
"I support Christ’s Hospital for what it has given to me – and that is a lot!"


Aileen Simpson
"My seven years at Christ’s Hospital were the best years of my life"
"There are lots of us now who really try to give back to Christ’s Hospital and we’ll never forget to carry the good name of Christ’s Hospital with us wherever we go."

Max Thomas
"Christ’s Hospital stands for going that extra mile for everybody"
"Everything that I’ve achieved thus far is thanks to CH.  I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the bursaries that they give out to normal people like me – Thank you!"

David Torrens
"Christ’s Hospital takes people in and gives them the best chance to make the most of what they are."




Onyinye Udokporo

“CH taught me to always make the most of every opportunity and I would like to think that it has made me the go getter that I am today. CH also taught me the importance of giving back to your community and I consider this one of my life principles."


Mary Agbesanwa

“CH definitely helped me to understand more about my identity. My seven years at CH taught me that it is best to be authentically you."


Tracey Abayeta

“The holistic educational offering of CH helped me (and others) to become well balanced individuals. I was able to learn how to effectively manage and prioritise my time in spite of the many responsibilities placed upon me as a member of the student leadership team.”


Samuel Adelaja

“I’ve met some truly fantastic Old Blues over the last 15 years, some of whom were extremely supportive as I looked to enter the financial services industry. I am looking forward to continuing the tradition and mentoring as many alums as possible going forward.”


Golda Boateng

"CH established a great understanding to continually push myself which has had a profound impact on the person I am today. I have never felt anything was out of reach - as long I commit and put my mind to it, it is possible!”


AJ Odulaja

"Reflecting on seven years at CH – I feel confident enough to say that it is a place for character building! CH afforded us a variety of opportunities, and whilst I did not always take them, looking back my time at CH inspires me in terms of seizing opportunities and making the most of what you have."


Jasmine Boadi

"Being at CH allowed me to cultivate an open mind from a young age, and that is invaluable.”


     Boko Inyundo

"I am thankful for the excellent education I received at the School which has proven to be an important foundation for both further studies and throughout my career."

Chris Thomas
"CH develops you into the person that you want to become. .. it was CH that ultimately gave me the tools to get there and every aspect of my time at CH continues to have influence in my life today."

Eric Dolton
"My experience at Christ’s Hospital changed the course of my life."
"Receiving a CH bursary offered me an education that I would not have otherwise had."


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.
