The Maclaren Foundation





“ I have no doubt that, had I not gone to Summer Fields, I wouldn’t have passed my exams into Eton and then got into the University of Bristol. It was a far higher level of education than would have been available to me otherwise.”

  Former Maclaren Scholar, David Dubrovsky (2005 – 2008)

As an independent school we are always conscious that there are many occasions when financial barriers prevent  pupils from accessing a Summer Fields education. The Maclaren Foundation seeks to address this by providing funded places, Maclaren Scholarships, to boys with potential who, for financial reasons, would not otherwise be able to afford a Summer Fields education. In almost all cases these places are awarded with a minimum of 50% funding and are often fully funded.

The Foundation represents the core values of the school: academic excellence, character development and social engagement and is overseen by an independent board of trustees appointed by the Summer Fields Board of Governors.

 I think it is very important for more young people to receive these kinds of  opportunities. The Maclaren Scholarship was invaluable to me. Without it, I doubt that I would be at my current university.”

Former Maclaren Scholar, Eden Packer (2006 – 2010)

Since the Foundation was established more than 25 years ago, and thanks to the generosity of our donors over the years, the school has provided places to many scholars. We continue to fundraise so we can meet the increase in demand for means-tested bursaries and provide more places to talented pupils. 

To ensure we have sufficient funds to support Maclaren Scholars over the coming years and for future generations we need your support. You can support scholars and have a life-changing impact on their lives by making a donation or pledging regular support to the Maclaren Foundation.
