Philanthropy is a long-standing and much valued tradition at the Dragon. In 1886, it was parents’ faith and financial support which enabled the fulfilment of an extraordinary vision – to found a school that would inspire and nurture each child’s unique gifts. £2,000, (around £200,000 in today’s terms), was raised to found Dragon School and, by 1895, parents had donated a further £4,000 to fund the move to Bardwell Road. The continued generosity of our community ensures that the Dragon remains a diverse and vibrant school that develops independent, confident and articulate children.
A Dragon education is a unique opportunity. Every child is encouraged to think creatively, explore the world around them and strive for excellence in their own inimitable way. The School fosters a culture of openness and giving, with philanthropy playing a key part in the curriculum.
All gifts are greatly valued, with regular gifts by direct debit helping to secure the School’s aims for the future. We welcome donations of all sizes and frequencies, which combined make a real difference to the lives of the pupils who benefit.
