21st May 2021 — The Leys has a long tradition of providing bursaries to allow pupils from all backgrounds to study at the School. The Gift of Education is the next step on this path, and it is the school's ambition to support two pupils in each year group of the School with 110% bursary places.
The school will work with its partner Royal SpringBoard, a national social mobility charity, to match young people from disadvantaged backgrounds to The Leys. It is known that the Covid-19 crisis has further reinforced existing attainment gaps. The impetus is stronger than ever, for those who can, to help create opportunity for younger generations.
