A Block Leavers' Bursary Campaign 2017
Invest in the future of a Dragon pupil; and help us maintain the spirit of the Dragon by donating to the transformational bursary fund.
Bursaries transform the life of a child; and enrich the lives of all our Dragon pupils. Read, for example, Dominic's story.
One of the distinctive features of the Dragon has always been the range of backgrounds and abilities of our children. Rising costs and the consequent rise in fees potentially narrows the range of our pupils’ backgrounds and threatens to alter the character of the School. By supporting a bursary, you help to transform the life of a child, and you help us to maintain our unique, unstuffy and inspirational culture.
The Bursary Campaign Story
Leavers' parents have helped transform children's lives since 2002 when the Transformational Bursaries Programme was launched. Since then, we have raised nearly £5 million in total for bursaries. Every year we are supported by A Block Leavers' parents. Last year's bursary campaign raised over £200,000 and we hope to do the same again this year. To date, 60 pupils have received bursarial support; 38 have been educated all the way through the School.
