The George Watson's Family Foundation was set up in 1997 and exists to continue the spirit of the legacy left by George Watson which led to the opening of Watson's in 1741.
His views were clear. He wanted children from less advantaged backgrounds to enjoy the quality of education available to those more fortunate. This spirit is alive today. Through the Foundation, help with paying fees is available, and these awards are made at the discretion of the Foundation Trustees. Fundraising for the George Watson's Family Foundation is also crucial for the future development of Watson's and our Development Office is the focus of our fundraising activities.
