Abberley Hall School has flourished in its fine Victorian surroundings for almost a century due to the promotion of excellence and good governance. However, Abberley has no endowment and is dependent upon school fees to fund its operation. It is clear that, while the business is successful and runs very well, the school’s future requirements will make difficult demands upon its existing resources.
For this reason, the Abberley Hall Foundation has been formed with the aim of raising funds to support a number of specific charitable objectives.
These charitable objectives include; Conservation of the house and grounds, Bursaries and Future Developments. The Board of Trustees of the Abberley Hall Foundation, led by former pupil Vernon Taylor, brings a mix of talents to the table. Some members have a long association with the school, others have a particular skill or interest relevant to the Foundation’s objectives.
They have been successful in organising a fund-raising campaign which has enabled practical measures to be initiated to help the school. A small bursarial fund has been established which will hopefully grow over time to be of real benefit to families who find themselves in difficulty.
To improve communication, and develop further support for the Foundation, the Abberley Hall Alumni network was launched at the beginning of the Centenary Year, starting in September 2016. The Alumni is open to all former Abberley pupils, parents, friends of the school, staff and governors. One of the network's function is to keep all members up to date with any activities and events related to the Foundation and allows members to contact each other through the network.
