Futures Campaign

Why Futures? 

Young people face accelerating change: the technological revolution, climate change, population growth, inequality - the list goes on. These developments are already affecting us. How profoundly will they affect those with their whole adult life ahead of them? 

How to prepare?

A change in educational emphasis is required. We need to provide our pupils with the ideas, skills, and qualities to thrive in this new world. Through three key pillars, we will be preparing young people for the future; through investing within and beyond the curriculum. But to effectively prepare our young people for the future, we need the help of our community.

It is an exciting time for Dean Close as we embark on the largest investment in the School's history, to date. We are passionate about our young people and hope that you will join us as we make this investment in their futures. They deserve it. 

Why Support Us?

Our donors make a significant difference to Dean Close. From as early as 1892, Dean Close School has benefitted from the philanthropic support of our community. Since then, we have received a number of gifts, large and small, from individuals and families who have continued this tradition and invested in the future of the School.

Owing to the generosity of our community we have been able to provide life-changing opportunities to generations of pupils. Our success is rooted in and continues to be supported by, the philanthropy of our community.
The diversity of activities in the Dean Close Foundation portfolio has strengthened the financial position of Dean Close and our ability to improve facilities, offer the very best to pupils of all ages, whilst also being mindful of keeping fees manageable. However, unlike many other fee-paying schools, we do not have a large endowment from which we can draw. We, therefore, need the support of our community to help deliver our ambitious campaign.
