We are a local charity that makes grants to Christ Church & St Peter’s CE Primary School and to eligible individuals under the age of 25 to promote their education (including social and physical training). In 2023 we awarded grants totaling almost £194,000.

Grants are regulary awarded for college or university studies, for music tuition and educational trips. Help towards sports coaching, educational courses, books, specialist clothing, Scout and Guide camps can also be considered under our ‘General Grants’ scheme and these are considered on an individual basis. Full application criteria for each type of grant can be found on the relevant page.

The fund is administered by a small body of trustees. If you have any questions about the fund and your eligibility to apply, please contact the Clerk to the Trustees who will be happy to answer your questions.

The next meeting of the Trustees will be in Autumn 2024. Please ensure that completed applications for that meeting are received by the Clerk to the Trustees no later than 5pm on Friday 11th October 2024. Applications received after this date will not be able to be considered at the next meeting.
