Peter Points Bursary Fund

Peter Points Bursary Fund

Bursaries are already very much part of the ethos of Pangbourne, but it is perhaps not widely acknowledged or advertised. The College sits at the heart of an education charity, and we are determined to help girls and boys from all backgrounds to enjoy the unique Pangbourne education. The College provides access to its education through the availability of means-tested bursaries for pupils who would otherwise not be able to attend Pangbourne.

At present the College has no endowment or foundation and is, therefore, funding all bursaries and fee remissions from fee income. We, therefore, are reliant on the support of our friends, parents (past and present) and our alumni.

Reliance on fee income alone continues to put pressure on surpluses that are required for the development and maintenance of the Campus. The College is in a good financial position which has enabled improvements in recent years, including the refurbishments of the Study area and Science facilities and the swimming pool, however, there is much more to do. Funding bursaries not only supports the education of a child at Pangbourne, it enables the College to redirect current funds to accelerate the development of the College Campus.

In honour of Peter Points, who was appointed Headmaster in 1969 until his retirement in 1988, we are raising funds to award life-changing, transformational bursaries to provide the best education available to young people of strong academic potential, whatever their financial background.

How to Support?

If you would like to help us grow our support for Bursaries then you can donate online or alternatively other methods of giving can be viewed here.

You don't have to give a lot to make a difference. Collectively small regular donations can have a big impact. If 150 people give just £20 a month plus gift aid, we can fund one full bursary for a year.

"I think it’s incumbent on all of us who work in the independent sector to ensure that the pupils recognise that with good fortune comes responsibility to give back."
