The gift of education is one of the most generous you can give. See how your support changes lives.
By donating to The Perse, you are providing the opportunity for young people, who would not otherwise be able to attend the School, to realise their full potential. Investing in the future of young people is the best way to make the world a better place.
Pupils who receive bursaries go on to make huge positive impacts in their communities, becoming healthcare professionals, teachers, public representatives and more. Your generosity has an enormous impact. It does not just help individual pupils in the short term – it also allows them to embark on careers that benefit entire communities.
“[My] bursary meant that I didn’t have to leave the School at a critical time in my education and I was able to develop a proper relationship with a school. Without the School’s massive assistance, I don’t think I’d have been able to achieve these grades and therefore wouldn’t have been able to set myself such great goals for my years in higher education. I’ll be forever grateful for the support The Perse provided me with over my five years and will grasp every opportunity to give back.”

“The scheme is so important. There are so many people out there who aren’t fulfilling their potential and could really do with something else in their life. The impact that it can have will last a lifetime. There will be people who will become surgeons, doctors, engineers, who otherwise would never have become these professions. You can have that impact on their life. You can really make the world a better place by investing in these people, allowing them to flourish and fulfil their potential.”

Pupils, teachers and other staff at The Perse develop relationships in the local community through our outreach with 33 local state-maintained schools. This programme sees Perse staff and older pupils teaching subjects ranging from maths to Latin and provides coding equipment and music lessons to pupils who would not otherwise have the opportunity to code or learn an instrument.
Outreach complements our bursary work by extending a Perse education to the wider Cambridgeshire community. You can read more about the programme here.
