Phase 1

Campaign Target

Whilst the School is able to fund the majority of the projects ahead – using a mix of loan financing and generous support from the Judd Foundation – the additional support of parents, past parents and Old Tonbridgians will be vital in ensuring that we remain able to provide an unsurpassed education of breadth and depth for years to come.

Our plans for the future are wide-ranging and ambitious. We have small projects and large ones. Some are under way already; some are years away, and some we haven’t even thought of yet. We hope every member of our school community will want to be involved.

Where is the school funding coming from?

The £29m school funded element of the overall project costs includes £9m bank loans and £11m Judd Foundation support. The £6m campaign fundraising target includes £5.4m raised to date.

Naming opportunities and network membership

By supporting the Excellence for All campaign you will be part of a philanthropic network helping the School provide an education of unsurpassed depth and breadth and we want to show our appreciation for all your support.

We like to do this in a number of ways; by providing opportunities to name elements of the projects and programmes. For example there will be opportunities to name parts of the new science and library buildings as well as appearing on special supporter boards. We also welcome the opportunity for campaign supporters to request that the name of someone they wish to have recognised is displayed instead of, or as well as, their own.

£5.4m raised to date. We need the final £0.6m to reach our target

This method of recognition and thanks is important as it visibly reminds us how vital philanthropic support is for the on-going development of the School and encourages a culture of philanthropy.

Depending on the level of support you will be invited to join a network of like-minded individuals. The highest level of recognition is for our Pioneer Funders and in return for their outstanding generosity we host regular dinners and events throughout the year. We provide similar engagement opportunities for our other supporter networks known as Benefactors and Patrons. All supporters are invited to the Headmaster’s annual summer drinks.

As many will know, Tonbridge is going through its biggest development programme since the 19th Century. Following the launch of the Excellence for All campaign, we have made tremendous progress transforming the School campus, improving the educational experience for all boys, and offering more bursaries to families who would otherwise have been unable to consider a Tonbridge education.
