Lancing has a long history of providing bursaries to students who would not otherwise have a chance to receive the kind of education that Lancing offers. In independent research carried out with OLs and parents in 2021, transformative bursaries were still identified as the key area for support. Lancing Foundationers benefit from a solid all-round education; the peer-to-peer support provides pupils with a sense of community, ambition and achievement - key elements in helping to prevent vulnerability. This campaign has demonstrated the strong desire to ensure that the benefits of a Lancing education are made more widely available. We select pupils from a wide variety of schools, both local and national, and they join in the Third Form and also the Sixth Form. The success of the programme is shared with our partners - the Royal National SpringBoard Children's Foundation, East Side Young Leaders' Academy and Buttle UK.
The opportunity to go to a College such as Lancing is one that I will cherish and never forget. I hope one day to give someone like me a chance to change the blueprint of their life forever.
