In 2041, the School will celebrate its 500th anniversary. With this milestone now on the distant horizon, it is time to consider how we measure up to the original founding values and how we might adapt and innovate to prepare our pupils for the future.
One major priority stands out. We would like to provide many more free and generously-discounted places to deserving students - those of high potential; who are currently held back by where they live, or by domestic circumstances, or both.
We give bursaries already. But to make a real impact we must go beyond what our accounts will allow, and this will mean calling on the generosity of the Berkhamsted community of parents, OBs and friends.
Of course, we will also continue to develop the School's facilities as needed, but our Anniversary Fund for life-changing bursaries is the prime focus for philanthropy.
