The Nightingale Fund supports children from disadvantaged backgrounds by:
- Providing bursaries to the children of essential key worker children (NHS Scholar initiative) at various entry points throughout the school;
- Providing bursaries in our Sixth Form for children from disadvantaged backgrounds who specifically wish to follow A level courses to access Medicine and related studies at university – nurturing the next generation of NHS heroes.
“Our school, and its global community, recognises the outstanding contribution that NHS key workers make to the health and wellbeing of the British people, particularly at this time of national crisis. We are in awe of their commitment, passion and bravery as they protect and care for us all from their pivotal position on the front line.”
Shaun Fenton, Reigate Grammar School Headmaster
“We all recognise the value and importance of our NHS. We also appreciate that not every child has the opportunity to realise their dreams. This fund will allow children from disadvantaged backgrounds to access a world-class education and fulfil their ambition to follow a medical pathway. We need our special community to help us to nurture the NHS heroes of the future.”
Sean Davey, Head of Foundation
