A ‘family’ of schools in Cambridge, Madingley and Saffron Walden raised nearly £23,000 during Christmas fund raising.
The Stephen Perse Foundation has raised nearly £23,000 towards school places for children who have been displaced by conflict.
The family of schools smashed its initial target of £18,000 going on to raise £22,957 in just one week as part of this year’s Big Give Christmas Challenge.
The money will support bursary places at its schools in Cambridge and Saffron Walden for young people displaced by conflict – especially the war in Ukraine.
The Stephen Perse Foundation is a family of schools in Cambridge, Madingley and Saffron Walden educating boys and girls aged 1 to 18.
Home to 1608 students across its 7 sites, the school has history dating back to the 17th century when Dr Stephen Perse a fellow of Gonville and Caius College at the University of Cambridge bequeathed land for the establishment of a school in his will.
Since then, the school has evolved and grown to now provide a complete educational pathway for boys and girls.
The school’s mission is to educate and inspire the contributors to tomorrow’s world: intelligent young people with the creativity, compassion, confidence, and conviction to question, evaluate and improve society.
