Support a bursary | Epsom College

As a donor, you can help extend the College’s bursary provision. You can provide immediate and vital support by sponsoring (or helping to sponsor) a pupil all the way through the school, or in the Sixth Form. This provides an immediate and significant impact for the recipient and teaching and learning for all. Email the Development Department to find out more.

Maxwell Phair Bursary Fund

“I would urge OEs to support this fund – it is a memorial to a great teacher and to his fellow masters at Epsom. Crucially, this fund is all about maintaining the position of Epsom College as a charity.”

Dr Robert Ribeiro (Granville, 1955-60)

The Development Department actively seeks support for the Maxwell Phair Fund, established in memory of this distinguished master who taught at Epsom College from 1939 to 1969.

The aim is to create a £500,000 endowment, which will generate enough annual income to create a full bursary every year, in perpetuity.

Neil Laing Bursary Fund

“He was far and away the best teacher I ever had, certainly the most admirable. He believed in me when (in my angry adolescence) it seemed nobody else cared at all. Neil made literature seem muscular and powerful rather than weedy; as you know, such things matter to a 16-year-old.”

Jeremy Vine (Holman 1978-82)

Neil Laing taught English at the College from 1974 to 2006 and as Housemaster of Robinson from 1981 to 1996. You can read more about Neil here.

The long-term aim of the fund is to raise a capital sum of £500,000 which would generate enough income to provide a full bursary in perpetuity.

Bursaries really do change lives, enabling talented students whose parents could not afford the fees the opportunity to study at Epsom.

General Bursary Fund

“Looking back, my five years at Epsom College played an extremely powerful developmental role in my life. I am extremely grateful for the scholarship and bursarial support I received that helped me to attend Epsom College. 

“I would like to thank all those who have supported Epsom’s Bursary Fund, which has such a powerful impact on the lives of many Epsomians.”

Sandy Reid (Propert, 2002-07)

Trustees award funds to suitable candidates upon the recommendation of the Bursar. Typically, these awards are made for the duration of a pupil’s time at the College.
