St Mary’s and St Margaret’s Preparatory School are committed to educating talented young individuals by offering means tested assistance to exceptional candidates who for financial reasons would not otherwise be able to join us.
Each year we greatly welcome the support of groups of volunteers able to co-ordinate their year or Group collectively to raise funds at all levels towards a full or part-bursary. We would love to hear from any alumna or parent who would like to co-ordinate a campaign for their year group. We greatly appreciate the generosity of leaving parents many of whom use this as an opportunity to give back.
If you are interested in organising a bursary syndicate, please contact Cari Depla, Director of Development.
The Calne Foundation Trust Bursary Fund has benefitted enormously from the generous gifts from the Old Girls of their own charitable fund and The Matthews Bursary Fund. Together these boosted the Bursary Fund of the Foundation by approximately £175,000. We continue to work on building up the capital fund for bursaries which in time will allow us to fund means-tested bursaries out of income.
Within the Bursary Fund, there is a Music Bursary Sub-Fund. This Fund has been set up to support girls at St Mary’s who show exceptional musical talent and will contribute towards their music lessons and music studies. The fund was launched in November 2016 at the Sir David Willcocks Memorial Concert.
