Independent schools like Kingswood College can only thrive with the support and loyalty of past pupils, parents, grandparents, friends and supporters who cherish the role that the school has played in their lives.

We need help to make it possible to ensure a progressive and vibrant future for the school. We’re asking you to give us a small gift every month – the cost of a good bottle of wine, or a meal at a restaurant – to help us to build the Kingswood Scholarship and Bursary Fund. If every Old Kingswoodian and Kingswood supporter contributes an amount every month, we will be able to assist many young people to have a Kingswood education – deserving pupils, the children of Old Kingswoodians, youngsters with special talents whose lives can be transformed by a Kingswood education.

Started in 2009 by a loyal group of Old Kingswoodians who came together to raise funds to enable the son of a terminally-ill classmate to attend Kingswood, the Legends Fund quickly took on a life of its own. Inspired by the overwhelming generosity and commitment of its founders – all of them loyal and passionate Old Kingswoodians and Kingswood supporters, the Legends Fund moved beyond the original aim to a plan to build a meaningful reserve for Kingswood College from which deserving children can be assisted with bursary and scholarship support. The Legends Fund lives on, and is driven to build Kingswood’s future. Please sign up to contribute to the Legends Fund and be part of a gift that will go on giving.

Who administers these funds?

Established in 1994 to celebrate Kingswood’s Centenary, and with the purpose of gathering a capital fund for use by Kingswood for the future, the Kingswood College Centenary Trust has been the custodian of all funds raised for Kingswood since that time. With time, and wise investments, the Trust fund has grown to a sizable war chest which is used to assist the College annually, as well as funding special capital projects like the construction of the new girls’ hostel, Kirkby House in 2004, and more recently, the Astroturf and Swimming Pool development. Ever-vigilant of the capital amount, the Trust often makes finance available as interest free or low interest loans, relying on donations and fundraising for special projects to replenish the capital.

One thing is clear – any money donated to Kingswood College is well looked after, and wisely spent, with the prudent counsel of the trustees, and the outstanding professional services of Mellville Douglas as the Centenary Trust’s investment advisors.

Trustees of the Centenary Trust are

Mr Alistair Collier (Chairman)
Mr Tom Ansley
Mr Ross Randall
Mr Tim Judge
Mr Anton Vorster
