The case for supporting Reed’s School Primary and Secondary Forums

  • We aim to raise the aspirations of all children involved with the Reed’s School Primary and Secondary Forums, particularly those from deprived backgrounds by introducing them to new experiences, environments and opportunities.
  • The majority of the schools are situated in deprived areas and it is this link that is consistent with our ethos as a charitable foundation supporting disadvantaged children.
  • Through these Forums and just a single activity, up to 4,800 children could benefit each year. We aim to run a number of activities targeted at various age groups.
  • Through the Secondary Forum our cluster of schools will benefit from the opportunity to attend courses, assistance with the development of teaching skills and the provision of resources.
  • All partner schools will have the opportunity to recommend children for means tested bursaries and scholarships - aimed at those whose home situation is so difficult that a nurturing boarding education will allow them the stability and the happy childhood they deserve.

A Foundation Bursary Case Study:  Meet James

James was introduced to Reed’s School by the Honeypot Charity. James does not appreciate his own potential but this is a reflection upon the demands placed upon him at home. His parents separated and his Father has a schizo-effective disorder that results in unpredictable and disruptive mood swings. His Mother has abdominal TB and is unable to work, manage the home or take James to activities. There is much wasted potential. James loves Mathematics and Art, and is very keen on sport. He likes the idea of boarding.

Testimonial from recent Reed's School Bursary Foundationer:

“As a Foundation student, I am particularly grateful for every day I have been at Reed’s, and thus have taken hold of every opportunity that has come my way.  Indeed, the School allows opportunities for all, and it is inspirational to see how it still upholds Andrew Reed’s ideology.  The visionary said, in his final will, that he wanted Reed’s School to be  ‘open to all…without respect to sex, creed, place, or country’.  Without this vision, some of us would not be here today, and would not have had the experiences and learning that we now all have the chance to achieve."
