Old Warwickians

Warwick School bursaries

For many years the Governors and Head Masters of Warwick School have sought to provide full and partially-funded school places to deserving boys from all backgrounds. Many OWs have been recipients of direct grants or assisted places and the school has long been committed to continue this bursary funding to new pupils after these government funded schemes ended in 1997.

Thank you
Funding for bursaries now comes from sources such as The King Henry VIII Endowed Trust, Warwick, an annual budget set aside by the school and donations from generous benefactors. This support has allowed Warwick School to fund 36 full bursaries plus a number of partial bursaries this academic year.

We are grateful to hundreds of Old Warwickians who have generously supported our Bursary Fund over the past few years.

Regular gifts
Many OWs make regular monthly or annual gifts to the Bursary Fund, which collectively help to fund bursary places. Fifty OWs giving £20 per month (plus Gift Aid) fund a full bursary place for a year.

Major gifts
Several individual OWs have generously chosen to fund a full bursary place over seven years for a boy at the school. The Old Warwickian Trust, set up in 2011 by the inaugural chairman Clive Mason (WS 1953-59) and the current chairman Richard Thornton (WS 1963-74), principally to support bursaries at Warwick School, is at present funding five full bursaries and one at 50%. A seventh bursary will be offered, beginning this September.

Legacy gifts
Thank you also to the growing number of OWs who are choosing to leave a gift in their will to the school. to give another child the opportunity of a Warwick School education.

Head Master Deneal Smith is firmly committed to providing even more bursaries to give boys aged 11 to 18 the chance of a Warwick School education over the coming years.
