The School aims to continue to meet the charitable aspects for which it was established by encouraging an awareness of the world outside and a sense of service to the local and wider community. We continue to provide a significant number of bursaries to allow bright boys to attend irrespective of their financial situation.
The School’s Trustee continuously keeps under review the public benefit that The School provides and has developed a Public Benefit Strategy which can be viewed here.
Benefit must be measured in comparison with The School’s Object of providing a school for boys - its main beneficiaries are the 1275 or so boys for whom it provides an education. As a fee charging charity, The School also has a duty to ensure that access to benefits is not unreasonably restricted through ability to pay and that those in poverty are not excluded. The excellent education provided to The School’s pupils and The School’s (means-tested) bursary scheme are therefore central to its task of delivering public benefit.
