With the cost-of-living crisis, now more than ever, many of our students’ families can sometimes struggle to make ends meet and when unexpected costs arise, they can suddenly find themselves in difficult circumstances.

The Hardship Fund supports those students in exceptional financial need, by helping to fund travel costs, house funds, school trips, sports uniform and other basic additional costs.

Nobody wants to see our students miss out as a result of hardship. We need to be able to support them and their families in this difficult period to ensure that no one gets left behind because of their circumstances. Every gift to the Hardship Fund will therefore ensure that these students can participate in every opportunity available to them.
