The Endowment Governors

The School is fortunate in enjoying the benefit of a small endowment, the revenue from which is applied by the Endowment Governors for the benefit of the students, either collectively through grants for equipment or travel or individually to allow a student experiencing financial hardship to take a full part in the voluntary activities organised by the School.  Parents seeking such support for their child should contact the Head.
