Changing lives with our transformational bursaries

Message from the Development Office

Hymers College was established under the will of Reverend John Hymers as a school "for the training of intelligence in whatever social rank of life it may be found" and since opening in 1893 it has remained true to his wishes. Hymers College is not a school for bright and wealthy children. We want to be able to give families choices and create futures and recognise potential across all sections of our society. There is no difference in student status or treatment, everyone here benefits from a shining future with dedicated teachers, coaches, and pastoral care to enable all to thrive.

As we look at our present needs and future developments it is clear that we require the support and involvement of the whole community. Currently, 12% of our students receive assistance with their fees. In 2022, 25 pupils aged 11 were unable to accept a place at the school because of a lack of bursary funding despite passing our entrance exam. Donations are a powerful opportunity to change the path of a young person.

Thank you

We are extremely grateful to our generous donors who support The John Hymers Bursary Fund. Without you it would not be possible to provide life changing bursary placements to talented children regardless of their background.

One of the fundamental aims of The John Hymers Bursary Fund is to allow children to attend Hymers when their families can't otherwise afford the fees, and to keep children in the School when families are hit by hardship and need our support most.

We want you to know that we are doing our absolute best to support children with the incredible gift you have given us, and we are working hard to make sure your donations have a lasting impact for the students who have a bursary place thanks to our generous donors.

Thank you for your support.
