130th Anniversary Assisted Place

With just one year left to complete our Delyvere mission to ensure 25% of girls here receive an Assisted Place, we're asking the Old Edwardian community to join us in creating the 130th Anniversary Assisted Place.

This place will be awarded to a girl who scores highly in the entrance exam in October, but can only take up her place here with financial support. Following the two pillars of our School, she will be a pupil who has shown her excellence, but who needs our help to make KEHS accessible. With this place being generously match funded by OE Carol Kennedy, we need to raise £50,000 to make this dream a reality – and for that, we need your help.

By giving together, we can achieve this goal.

Did you know that if just 35 Old Eds gave £13 per month, with Gift Aid and matched funding, we could create this new Assisted Place and give one more girl her green jumper?

This special place, in the final cohort of our campaign, will show that Old Edwardians are at the heart of our School. If you feel you can help, please make your gift below.


Matched Funding Details

Fervent supporter of Delyvere and Old Edwardian, Carol Kennedy has generously pledged £50,000 as a 'matched funding challenge' in aid of the 130th Anniversary Assisted Place.

The challenge is open until April 2020 and all donations will be matched pound for pound, doubling the value of every gift you make. What's more, regular gifts pledged and made during this time will be matched for their three year value, as will increases to existing regular gifts.

By helping us to match this challenge, you will ensure that access to opportunity doesn't begin and end at the school gates, offering Assisted Place holders experiences which will last a lifetime.

Make your gift using the form above, helping to unlock a special new Assisted Place and transform the life of a girl with the talent, but not the means, to flourish here.

Eligible gifts include single and regular payments. Bequests, and gifts of stocks, shares or property cannot be match funded. Single gifts will be matched pound for pound. Regular gifts will be matched for their three year value. Once we reach a total of £50,000, the match will be completed - and a total of £100,000 will be reached to fund the 130th Anniversary Assisted Place.
