I am delighted to have joined Pete Jakobek and the team here at Bristol Grammar School.
While some schools have fundraising as a ‘nice to have’, I have joined Bristol Grammar School under the leadership of the Headmaster, Jaideep Barot with a committed Board of Governors and staff, because this is a school that recognises the importance of providing greater opportunities for children through means-tested bursaries. This is a school that cherishes diversity, equality and inclusion.
The need to offer life-changing education for bright and able children regardless of financial means is stronger than ever. This is not a “nice to have”; it is an essential part of the school’s strategy. We are therefore proud to raise funds to support children who become our future leaders of change, benefitting our great city of Bristol and the world beyond.
While fundraising is an integral part of our work, the broader remit is to support the Old Bristolian Society, parents, staff and friends by developing a sense of community with opportunities to “join in”- socially and professionally.
I look forward to meeting many of you over the coming months when hopefully some warmer weather and a renewed sense of hope will bring us together.
