‘My Fully Funded Place means the world to me.’

The Donald Hughes Trust funds free places at Rydal Penrhos for disadvantaged children who are financially eligible and who would not otherwise be able to come to the School but whom the School believes will benefit from the truly life-changing education and opportunities offered. Priority is always given to “looked after” children.

For eligibility and criteria please refer to the admissions section of the website.

Our history animates our mission in the present – to continue to put into action the values of the School’s Methodist foundation by nurturing thoughtful, caring, and principled individuals. Our young people will come of age in a difficult time, in a world that is full of uncertainty. It is our job to prepare them for this world – not only by educating them to the highest standard but also by cultivating in them values that will allow them to stand firm despite this uncertainty, values of compassion, tolerance, good humour, and courage.

Gifts to the Donald Hughes Trust allow the School to extend the provision of these fully-funded places, providing life-changing opportunities for those children who are awarded them, and by increasing the internal diversity of its pupil body, enriching the School as a whole.

Thank you so much for considering a gift to the Donald Hughes Trust.
