Old School Trust



What is it?
The Trust exists to support financially the education or personal development of children who attend or have attended Guilden Sutton Church of England Primary School. Grants can be made to the school as well as to individual pupils or former pupils who apply to the Trust.
Previous grants made to individuals have been in the range from £50 to £500. The trust has helped fund: the purchase of musical instruments, textbooks, sports gear or other equipment; gap year projects; higher/further education expenses; voluntary work; overseas study, etc.
