During the Direct Grant era, more than half the places at Trinity were funded by the Local Education Authority. Today, thanks largely to the resources of the John Whitgift Foundation, we can give 17% of our students from low-income families support with their school fees. But there are many more local children from modest backgrounds who reach the required standard in our entrance test – whose lives would be transformed by a Trinity education – who we would dearly love to come to Trinity.
The Trinity Bursary Fund is a dedicated fund whose purpose is to increase the number of means-tested bursary places we can offer. Our community of alumni, parents and friends is determined to promote and preserve diversity, allowing more Croydon children access to a life changing education, unlocking their full potential and allowing them to go on to make their mark in the world.
The Trinity Bursary Fund has a dedicated website – www.TrinityGives.org.uk – which contains information about the bursary programme at Trinity and the progress the Trinity Bursary Fund is making in helping transform the lives of more children from low-income backgrounds.
