Paul’s Story – Trinity School
Paul graduated from Trinity in 1984 after receiving a bursary placement at the school to support his education. ‘What sets Trinity apart is I think the combination of what you get from an academic perspective but also the wider development, I think Trinity is really good at focusing on the person and getting them to perform at their best’
‘John Whitgift Foundation’s bursary scheme is very important. Being at Trinity made a massive difference to me in terms of my confidence, social skills and also academic outcomes and that had a big effect going into the world of work. The assisted place really made the difference between coming here or not and therefore a huge difference in my life.’
Trinity School offers bursaries for applicants up to 110% to cover all tuition costs and assist with additional expenses such as school uniform, lunches and school trips. Bursary amounts are means-tested and dependent on a family’s individual financial circumstances and highest performance on the entrance exams. Unfortunately, we don’t have the funds to provide bursaries for every applicant but award are made to as many students as we can provide for each year. Additionally, students who receive bursaries may also be awarded scholarships, Trinity School has a large variety of scholarships available.. All bursary applicants and awards are processed through John Whitgift Foundation.
John Whitgift Foundation grant over £5 million a year in bursaries across our three schools to grant life changing opportunities for young people in the Croydon area and grant them an outstanding education.
