We rely on small grants and donations. These have already made a life-changing difference to many students, and all donations – whether of money or expertise – are profoundly appreciated.
It costs us around £780 – or £65 a month – to put a student through the whole Reach Higher programme. This has three parts:
- 5 days on the Big Ideas residential at Westminster School (“life-changing” … “the greatest experience of my life”) costs us around £360 per student, or £30 a month
- 10 days intensive academic work with first-class subject experts at Trinity Hall, Cambridge (“beyond outstanding”) costs us around £240 per student, or £20 a month
- 10-20 one-on-one academic tutorials (“I can’t begin to explain how much it has helped me”) cost us around £180 per student, or £15 a month
We work hard to offer excellent value. Using volunteers and negotiating discounts means Reach Higher costs us about a third of the usual cost price. So every pound donated goes three times further.
Those who contribute £65 a month or more cover the full cost of putting a student through Reach Higher and become Linacre Champions. This is a unique chance to:
Pass something on
Your donation will provide for a named student, allowing him or her to be taught in inspirational places by inspiring people, and dramatically increasing his or her chances of reaching our top universities.
Give something back
Champions Scholarships can be named for someone who helped you fulfil your own potential. They are therefore a unique way of honouring a mentor or someone who went the extra mile for you.

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.
