Individual supporters

We are a small charity. We only want to grow at a pace that maintains the quality of what we do. So we rely heavily on small grants and donations.

The problem at northern comprehensives is severe. Many have never sent a student to a world-class university. The South East sends proportionally four times as many as the North.

In 2014 we started working on this. Students called our pilot project “life-changing”; Hall Cross School in Doncaster said it was “beyond outstanding”.

Now we need your help. We are looking for 200 Champions to give 100 northern students a fair chance. We are very grateful for donations of funds or expertise of whatever size.

Linacre Champions

Many supporters choose to become Champions. Champions contribute £25 a month to provide a scholarship which will make a life-changing difference. Equally importantly, they contribute their experience and expertise. The support of two Champions is enough to fully fund a student through the Reach Higher programme.

Corporate and trust supporters

In 2017-18 we are looking to form partnerships with businesses and trusts which support our aims. Many of our students go on to world-class universities and show exactly the kind of independence and get-up-and-go that businesses are looking for. Click here to find out more.
