Welcome from Development
As we approach Christmas and come to the end of another busy half, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those that have so generously supported us this year and in previous years.
Philanthropy supports a range of projects at Eton, including the provision of scholarships and bursaries. These ensure that talented boys from a mix of backgrounds have the opportunity to fulfil their potential at the college. Last academic year 273 boys (21%) received financial assistance, averaging 66% remission of school fees. Of those, 74 boys were on 100% means-tested bursaries.
Support is also needed to maintain and enhance the extensive College Collections, fund social projects run by the boys for the good of the wider community and assist with the upkeep of our 400 buildings, 78 of which are listed including the restoration of School Yard. Donations also play a fundamental role in providing new buildings and facilities to enrich the boys’ educational development and achievement.
Without your support all this would not be possible.
With best wishes for a wonderful Christmas and we look forward to seeing you at one of our many events in 2017.
