No Limits. A Fundraising Campaign for George Watson's College

Support our Pupils this Christmas

ENABLE

Every year without the support provided by the Foundation Places Programme, over 200 pupils would quite simply not be able to benefit from a Watson’s education.  A fully funded Foundation Place costs between £10,233 and £13,170 per year. Sustaining this remarkable level of financial assistance has never been more important and would not be possible without the support of our current parents and donors. 

A Foundation Place will be truly life-changing for a young person, who will benefit from a Watson’s education, even where their family circumstances might not have otherwise allowed it. 

Your help will ENABLE us to transform young lives.

ENSURE

A sudden change in a family’s financial circumstances can happen for a number of reasons. In the spring of 2020 as the economic impacts of the pandemic began to unfold the School pledged that no pupil would leave Watson’s as a result of the urgent financial challenges some families faced.

We were able to offer short term financial assistance that allowed 103 pupils to remain part of our School community.

As we move into 2021 with the continued challenges of the pandemic still ahead of us, now more than ever before, we need your help to ensure that we can continue to offer this vital financial assistance to those families who are faced with the prospect of leaving Watson’s due to a significant change in their financial circumstances.

Your support will ENSURE no family needs to remove their child from Watson’s.

ENRICH

We aim to provide extraordinary opportunities as part of a Watson’s education. Enrichment is an important aspect of life at Watson’s and we know that for some pupils they simply cannot consider participating due to the associated costs.

Your help will allow us to remove the financial barriers that may prevent a pupil from enriching their Watson’s journey with a mix of sport, adventure, music, creative arts, travel and culture.

 Your donation will truly ENRICH a pupil’s Watson’s  experience.
