Our Mission

The Foundation exists to promote and support Wycliffe as a school of choice by facilitating the engagement of the alumni, parents and
Friends of Wycliffe with the College and each other. We have built a philanthropic culture within this community and we operate transparently.

The Gift of Time | Volunteering

Your time and expertise can be used to benefit Wycliffe, our pupils and staff in a number of valuable ways and across a variety of roles.

Volunteering can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience that may help you make new professional and personal connections. If you think you can donate time to us please contact our dedicated and experienced Alumni team at The Wycliffian Society

All our volunteers’ time contributions are recorded and as a thank you, we warmly welcome you as a ‘Friend of Wycliffe’.


The Gift of Giving | Donating

By donating to The Foundation you will be joining thousands of fellow alumni and friends who are already having a collective impact on the future of Wycliffe.

Gifts from alumni and friends are transforming young lives through improving Wycliffe’s resources and buildings and giving the next generation of pupils the opportunity to study at Wycliffe no matter what their circumstances.

The Gift of Endowing | Legacy

By supporting Wycliffe through the gift of a legacy, you will be giving talented young people, with limited means, the opportunity to experience the culture and education which will enrich their lives and those of the community around them. Your generosity will make a significant difference to future generations.

We realise that it is not practical for many to offer Wycliffe financial support during their lifetime and that a bequest may be easier or more appropriate.  Naturally your family and nearest and dearest come to mind first when writing a Will, but if you feel you can help then we would be delighted to hear from you.

Leaving a legacy is an opportunity for you to remain involved with Wycliffe beyond your lifetime and is an enduring example of your commitment to the College and its vision for the future.  A gift of this kind can be extremely tax efficient and may reduce the overall Inheritance Tax burden on your estate.  Should you decide to leave a gift to Wycliffe it is important that you take professional advice from your solicitor or financial adviser on the terms of your Will.

Any information you provide will always be kept completely confidential.


During the 2017/18 academic year, the Wycliffe Foundation has made awards totalling £34,000 to 20 different pupils by way of sports, drama and academic scholarships, for bursaries to relieve hardship and assistance towards University fees.


Prep School Pavilion Project

A decision has been taken by the Council of Trustees for the Prep School Pavilion Project to be postponed.  Whilst a number of activities have been undertaken during the past eighteen months or so with a view to fund-raising for this project, we have so far only managed to generate a little over £20,000 which is some significant way short of what is required to proceed with building the Pavilion.

We recognise that many people have, in good faith, donated time, money or other generous contributions to this project thus far and, in proper recognition of this, funds raised up until now will be ‘ring-fenced’ and dedicated to the project at a later date when the College is in a position to proceed with its completion.
