There are many ways in which you can help support King’s. These include:
- donating your time to come in to the school and give a talk to pupils about your profession, career or interest. If you would like to do this, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
- providing work experience placements for students in Year 10 or the Sixth Form. Again, please contact email@example.com
- providing financial support for our Bursary Fund or Capital Fund
More than five hundred years ago Sir John Percyvale, a former Lord Mayor of London, founded a school in his hometown of Macclesfield through an endowment upon his death. Through subsequent gifts and endowments, the school grew and became what is now known as The King’s School.
Whilst the school has undergone many changes over the last five centuries, it maintains one of the original objectives of the founders of the school to offer a first class education to pupils irrespective of financial means. It does this through the provision of bursaries.
Today’s King’s pupils not only receive the highest quality academic teaching, but also enjoy an unrivaled range of opportunities to become confident, well-rounded and successful individuals.
It is due to the ongoing philanthropic giving of many of our former pupils, staff and parents that we are able to continue to offer a number of means-tested bursary places each year. However, the number of pupils applying for bursaries continues to outstrip the number of places that we are able to offer. It is one of our objectives to maintain access to the school for all sections of the local community and to help local families give their children the very best start in life, regardless of their financial situation.
Please consider supporting King’s in whatever way you can. Your support could make a huge difference to a child. Lauren received a bursary to enable her to attend King’s Sixth Form. This is her story:
“I would like to say a huge thank you to those who have donated to the Bursary Fund. Your kindness and generosity is very much appreciated. Over the last year I have had the chance to grow in confidence both in how I see myself and in my ability to tackle chosen A Level subjects. The support and focused environment of The King’s School has been of utmost importance to me in this progress. The bursary has given me stability and the chance to settle into studying knowing that, at King’s, I will continue to receive the best education available. I fully intend to make the most of it. Thank you.” Lauren
