Grenfell Tower Disaster

Katy - Pembridge Hall School

In summer 2018 The Pembridge Hall Bursary & Scholarship Fund fulfilled its goal with the first fully supported student passing through its doors

James - Falcons School for Boys

Rebecca Pagen is a Play Therapist who has been working with a student whose therapy has been sponsored by the GSCT

From the parents of the student

"Our son is a child who requires significant SEN support, which, for now at least, is best served by external specialists outside of school. Unfortunately, the cost of such support is almost as much as the school fees. We simply have not been able to afford to pay both. The GSCT bursary has enabled our son to stay in the happy and social environment of the Falcons School whilst also benefiting from external specialist SEN support.

What a difference we are seeing this term! We have a happy and engaged child who is making real progress. It’s the perfect example of a school working in harmony with a family and a specialist group for the benefit of the child and it has all been made possible by the Gold Standard Charitable Trust. Thank you GSCT, we could not be happier or more grateful"


Max - Wetherby Senior School

Seth Bolderow, Headmaster of Wetherby Senior School writes about Max who has received a 100% GSCT award

From Seth Bolderow

"He deservedly received promising reviews for his thoughtful portrayal of the character. I was lucky enough to be able to share the experience with him and meet other members of the cast and crew; it was impressive to see how comfortable he was in that world and he is right to have ambitions to do more. I am often asked by parents what makes a Wetherby boy and Max is one of the examples I like to give: he is engaged academically, he makes the most of the opportunities the school offers and he is an enthusiastic, kind and supportive member of the community who quickly made firm friendships with the other boys."


Sam - Falcons Prep School

Olivia Buchanan, Headmistress from Falcons Prep School, writes about Sam, who has been awarded a 100% Gold Standard Charitable Trust Bursary Award

From Olivia Buchanan

"Sam is always willing to offer a helping hand to those in need and this wonderful attitude lead him to win the Behavioural Award for Thoughtful Action at the same prize giving assembly. Including Sam, the Falcons School for Boys Bursary & Scholarship Fund is this year supporting three pupils on full awards - an astonishing achievement with the bursary fund still in its infancy. We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Trustees of the Gold Standard Charitable Trust for the wonderful support that they have given."


From Sam's Father

"Falcons Prep has been the best school for my son. He is really content and settled there. All of the boys are so polite and the teachers are doing an amazing job at instilling confidence in their students to become better leaders.

We are truly grateful to Falcons Prep School for the life changing support and guidance that has been offered to our son. We feel so very fortunate. Our only one wish is for Falcons Prep to open a Senior School so that Sam can continue with his learning in this wonderful environment."


Joshua - Wetherby Senior School

Seth Bolderow, Headmaster of Wetherby Senior School writes about Joshua who has received a 100% GSCT award

From Seth Bolderow

"He is also a strong footballer, he lead his Trib to victory this year and has been a key member of the School team throughout his time here. Joshua has quietly and purposefully brought a great deal to Wetherby Senior School and we are delighted to have him."


From Demi’s Mother

"What an amazing two years my daughter has had at Pembridge Hall. It has been a delight to watch my little girl thrive. It took her a few months to find her way and make new friends but she was able to settle in nicely with the help and support of the teachers.

Thank you for seeing something extraordinary in Demi and giving her the opportunity of a private education. I will forever be grateful for all your help, support, advice and kindness. There is a beautiful team spirit at Pembridge Hall; everyone made an effort to help Demi settle in.

The bursary allowed Demi to take part in LAMDA, to which she is now working towards grade two. Demi loves drama and has decided to carry on with LAMDA when she starts senior school. She also had the opportunity to choose an instrument. She chose the violin and in a few months will have achieved Grade One.

Demi has had so many exciting experiences at Pembridge Hall. She is in the Chamber Choir and Senior Choir. She was the Captain of the hockey team. She really has thrown herself at every opportunity. I am very proud of her.

Demi’s attitude and approach to the 11+ exam was extraordinary. She takes a confident, mature approach. With the teachers and Mr Keighley-Elstub’s help, Demi has been offered a place at Queen’s College on a 100% bursary. I cannot explain how much this means to us. Demi is so excited she is already planning her journey to her new school.

Once again, I would like to thank you for helping me prepare my daughter for the big journey ahead of her; the opportunity given to her at Pembridge Hall has been life changing."
