Covid-19 Bursary Fund

Will you help us to support Ellesmere families who are suffering significant adversity and difficulty?

As I write, families across the Ellesmere community are experiencing profound and sudden changes to their lives. There have been far-reaching consequences for many of our parents, some of whom are struggling to pay their child's school fees. Many of these pupils are at critical stages in their education and for their parents it is an agonising time.

Whilst our fee reductions will be of comfort to many parents, there are families for whom this will not be enough. For this reason, we are taking the unprecedented step of asking our community to help those pupils whose families are impacted financially because of the crisis we are all experiencing. We must keep our community together and care for each other.

Ellesmere College has a long history of supporting families through bursaries, but with pressures on our finances we are unable to do as much as we would like to today. This is why I am asking for your help. Your donation will go directly to assist those in our community most in need.

If you would like to invest in a young person's future, you can make a donation in a number of ways.

One-off Donations:

Single donations for your chosen amount can be made online or by sending a cheque to The External Relations Office, made payable to 'Ellesmere College'.

Regular Giving:

Making a regular donation can be as flexible as you want it to be. It can be monthly, quarterly or annually and for any amount you choose. If you would like to set up a standing order to Ellesmere College please contact

For further information about donating to the Bursary Fund please contact our External Relations Officer, Olivia Beckett, via email: who will be delighted to assist you.
