David Leicester Fund
Grants are available towards the provision of outdoor pursuits conducted by the School for the benefit of its pupils. Grants are provided to pupils whose parents are in financial need.
Requests for help should be made in the first instance to the member of staff in charge of the activity. Discretion as to awards sits with the Governing Body on the recommendation of the Head.
This fund began in 2009 and is supported by the Friends of Nottingham High School. Its purpose is to support those boys whose parents are in financial need to access school trips more generally than under the David Leicester Fund.
It is administered by the Head who reports to the Friends Committee in general terms on the grants made.
The Friends hold one event a year with a fundraising purpose to support this fund and to ensure its continuity.
Any family wishing to benefit from the Fund may apply in complete confidence to the Head. All requests are always handled with the utmost discretion.
C L Reynolds Fund
This is a more specific fund, allied to a boy undertaking a project rather than purely participating in a school trip.
Applicants are required to give a brief account of some project of educational value in the broadest sense, which they would be prepared to undertake if selected. They must also submit an estimate of the cost of their project, which need not necessarily be limited to the sum covered by the award, if they are prepared to contribute something themselves.
The project supported is selected by the Head and Deputy Head bearing in mind the purpose and value of the project, the candidate’s record of achievement in school work and the candidate’s record of service to the School.
Upon return, the successful candidate will be required to provide the Head with a full report on the carrying out of his project; this may be in a form suitable for publication in the school magazine. Previous projects supported have included a study tour to the UN, an Earthwatch project, assisting the construction of an orphanage in Guatamala, comparing the geography and economics of Cornwall and Brittany.
