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 recently, transformative bursaries were identified as a key area for support. Lancing Foundationers will 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 new campaign demonstrates the strong desire to ensure that the benefits of a Lancing education are made more widely available. Pupils will come from a wide variety of schools, both local and national, and will join in the Third Form and also the Sixth Form; they will be part of the wider Lancing community.
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.
