Christ’s Hospital Foundation
We are the UK’s leading charitable school and the country’s most generous educational bursary charity. Our mission is to challenge inequality and improve social mobility by providing a nurturing, transformative education. Through first-class teaching and learning and exceptional pastoral care, we provide each student with stability and the opportunity to thrive and fulfil their potential. The results are encouraging with 98% of students going on to university, alumni earning three times the household income of their parents and many taking roles in society which help to shape tomorrow’s world. Since our foundation, over 65,000 young people and their families have been supported.
We work with employers on a range of careers and employability programmes including networking events, careers talks, interview practice, work placements/apprenticeships and our Learning for Life programme for 6th Form students. These initiatives provide an opportunity to engage directly with high potential students from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds, widen talent pools, support CSR aims and give employees the opportunity to use their skills and experience to impact the lives of young people.
Company sponsorship of students while at the school provides a further opportunity to support increased social mobility for young people from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds and engage employees in CSR activity through mentoring, work experience and updates on the students’ progress.
Our work promoting social mobility has been recognised recently as a finalist for the 2022 UK Social Mobility Awards.https://www.christs-hospital.org.uk
