The Bishop’s Stortford College Annual Fund
Help shape our school environment by giving to The Annual Fund
We are united in the aim of supporting the continued success of the College now and for generations to come!
To continue to attract gifted students, and the highest caliber of academic staff, we are committed to future investment in the development of the College. However, all this comes at a cost and the reality is that, as a school, we receive in fee income considerably less than we need to spend.
The Annual Fund gives our community the opportunity to support the school in a way that allows the College to invest immediately where the need is greatest, to support the enhancement of the school's educational provision, facilities, and extracurricular activities.
Most donors to the Annual fund choose to give on an ongoing basis, typically monthly or annually, ensuring a dependable stream of income is available to allocate when need arises. Every purchase made from The Stortfordian Foundation Shop goes directly to support the goals of the Annual Fund, in addition to regular donations. Details of where funds have been allocated will be conveyed to all donors, so that you can see the impact that your generosity has helped to achieve.
Will you join the many Parents, Old Stortfordians, and other supporters who help us to create a wonderful environment for all pupils to thrive?
Our Annual Fund aims to raise funds for initiatives which might otherwise not be funded by the College budget and in the last two years, have included the following wonderful enhancements:
We are pleased to announce that all funds raised via the Annual fund in the Academic year of 2021 have gone to help fund the creation and construction of the Arboretum, a pupil-led Prep School Global Leaders initiative. From September 2021, Prep School Pupils will be able to enjoy a new outdoor learning, play and relaxation space while boosting the natural habitat with additional plants and hedging. Look out for more to come about this wonderful initiative and how donations have mad a real impact on the campus to be enjoyed by the Prep School from September!
In the Calendar year 2020, funds raised through the Annual Fund helped to pay for the new cricket nets installed in the practice facility near the Doggart Pavilion.
