The Silhillian Fund

The Silhillian Fund enables pupils from all backgrounds to fulfil their potential and in turn enables them to have a positive impact on the lives of others. A gift to the fund is an incredible investment in a person's academic, social and professional livelihood and wellbeing.

While we already offer a number of scholarships and means tested bursaries from the school's endowment fund, we wish to increase this provision by building up a capital fund of £2.5 million over the next five years to fund additional bursaries. It is our belief that no talented young person, with a desire to succeed, should feel deterred from applying because of his or her financial situation. Although we cannot fund everyone, we aim to support as many as we are able to. 

Ways of Giving

There are three main ways that benefactors can donate to the school. Regular giving makes a significant impact whether it is £10, £50 or £1000 per month, a legacy is a gift in your will, or you can give a one off gift

For further information, please contact Lucy Lunt, Director of Development and Alumni Relations or call 0121 703 2898.
