Welcome to the Oakham School Foundation

The Oakham School Foundation’s current mission is to ensure that any pupil who wishes to attend can do so. It is our goal to have 16 fully funded pupils by 2024, the same number as when the School was first founded by Johnson.

However, bursaries are not the Schools' only mission. Our philosophy of philanthropy has never changed – The Memorial Chapel, the Smallbone Library, Mehra Faculty of Science, Jerwood School of Design, BAF Smith Pavilion, Wilson Pavilion, and the Faculty of Social Sciences were all made possible by generous support from our community and make a difference to all Oakhamians daily.

The Foundation also helps fund smaller projects via the Foundation Project Fund. This fund enables smaller projects put forward by staff to enrich the experience of pupils inside and outside the classroom. These are facilitated by donations from OOs, former and current parents.

Your support, large or small, makes a world of difference, whether your donation is to bursaries, capital projects or our smaller Foundation projects. Thank you in advance for your generosity, and for helping to guarantee Oakham’s future.
