Support The Perse
Many people don't realise that as well as being one of the UK's leading independent schools, The Perse is also a registered charity. The Perse Development Office works to build relations with the whole school community, including Old Perseans, current and former Perse parents and encourages them to support vital aspects of school life, such as Entrance and Hardship Bursaries, building developments and educational experiences for our pupils.
The school has no permanent endowment and seeks to avoid placing the entire burden for future progress on school fees alone. Hence there are three major channels through which funds are raised:
The Annual Fund – the Annual Fund supports the school's immediate needs for Entrance and Hardship Bursaries and small building projects.
Legacies – The Perse was established in 1615 thanks to the generous legacy of Dr Stephen Perse. Today, our supporters are encouraged to remember the school in their Will, to help provide for its long-term future.
Major Campaigns – Every few years, a major campaign is held to generate significant funding for major capital projects and bursary provision. The most recent example was the Access to Excellence campaign, which raised £3m between 2006-2009. The Perse intends to hold the next major campaign as part of its 400th Anniversary celebrations in 2015.
We are deeply grateful to all our supporters who have contributed to one or more of these initiatives. Gifts of any size combine to make a huge difference. If you would like to make a donation, please use this website to find out more about our fundraising goals, visit our Make a Donation page, or contact the Development Office for further details.
Thank you for your support!
