"I just want to say a massive thank you for the funding we received during the last academic year. Our results were the best maths results the school has ever had and the gap between disadvantaged students and non-disadvantaged students in maths was a lot smaller than it was in English and in other subjects and that is entirely down to us having our maths academic tutors; it has made a huge difference to these student's results and we are very proud of them for working so hard to achieve their fantastic grades. We look forward to working with Richard Reeves Foundation again this year."
Head of Maths - Camden secondary school
Richard Reeve’s Foundation has been closely associated with Christ’s Hospital (the Bluecoat School) for over 100 years.
The School was founded as a charitable foundation for the poor of the City of London in 1552 by Edward VI, the son of King Henry VIII and Jane Seymour, and generously funded and supported by the merchants of the City. For centuries the School was in the heart of the City, and the scholars in their long coats would have been a familiar sight to Richard Reeve and his contemporaries. Now in West Sussex, the School provides a boarding education, free of charge or highly subsidised, to children from low-income or no-income families.
The Foundation continues this support and currently sponsors one child per year from any primary school in Islington, Camden or the City. Please visit Christ’s Hospital website for more information about the school or if you feel your child or a child within your primary school might benefit from attending this school.
We have have a long-term relationship with City University and provide grants which are used to help students who meet our criteria to achieve their full potential.
The college has its own application procedure and grants are distributed via the Student Centre. Please contact the Student Centre for information.
