The 100 Campaign

Changing lives through Bursaries

We need financial support to provide life-changing educational opportunities for over 100 children throughout the school whose potential is far greater than their financial means.

Our target is to raise £5million to help these children and we are asking for financial support from our whole school community.

All gifts for the 100 Campaign will be used to support children who need financial support and whose families are means-tested.

Your donation to our Bursary Appeal will help us to ensure that we create greater access for more children at Taunton School regardless of financial means.
