Sternians Trust Fund

Registered Charity no: 1052004

“The finest gift is education.”

The Sternians Trust Fund exists to try to ensure that those who enter upon their education at Lord Wandsworth College do not have that gift taken away from them through adversity. Over the years the Trust Fund has supported girls and boys whose parents have been taken ill, lost their jobs or whose businesses have crashed – all difficult and unforeseen events – which made it impossible for parents to meet the fees.

 

 

Currently there are six pupils whose continued presence at the College has been made possible by the Trust Fund. Those supported in previous years have richly repaid the faith put in them Рthey have matured and flourished at the College in their final years.

The Trust Fund was established in its present form in 1961 and has been built up through donations, bequests, covenants/gift aid and fundraising efforts. As school fees inevitably rise the income from the Fund, which is the source of support for pupils, is becoming inadequate to meet the calls upon it. The capital of the Fund needs to be expanded to provide the extra income required.

Here are some words from Parents whose sons/daughters have benefitted from the Trust:

“…. we cannot describe what the Sternians Trust Fund has done for our family because the feelings and emotions run too deep…”

“…we cannot thank Edward Walker and the Sternians fund enough for allowing our son to be able to continue this wonderful education…”
