Bursaries

BURSARIES

Bishops is an extraordinary school with excellent staff and resources. It is our hope that here, every boy finds something that inspires them for we believe that inspiration is the catalyst to success. As an institution of excellence, Bishops plays a pivotal part in the future of South Africa and thus has a duty to shape the future leaders of this country.

Many talented boys in South Africa, if given the opportunity could could change their own lives (or that of others) with a Bishops education – the only thing standing in their way is the means to pay fees – You need only read these bursary testimonials to see the impact such an opportunity can create.  

Bursaries are a meaningful way to give back and with thanks to parents and ODs, there are bursary opportunities to suit everyone:

Below is an overview of the existing programmes:

  The Extra Term  Initiative HMBF

The Russell Adams

Scholarship

The Christian Rohrer Scholarship
Objectives

One terms school fees paid annually for the duration of a boys college career.

The boys are generally from disadvantaged communities and are gifted in either academics, sport or the arts.

Donations allocated to the HMBF are drawn down at 4% annually to ensure the fund continues to grow and that boys continue to benefit. This programme was launched by the Class of ’87 to benefit talented pupils at Heathfield Primary School This Scholarship was set up by a Bishops Family in memory of 2017 Head Boy, Christian Rohrer after he lost his valiant fight with Cancer.
Benefits Mentorship opportunities exist.    Donors wishing to meet the beneficiary will receive ongoing updates on the boys progression whilst at college.   For the boys there is often a psychological benefit, knowing that there are others out there who support and believe in them. This fund will assist boys with partial or full school fees.  A Bishops education can provide a life changing opportunity for a boy. One child from Heathfield Primary School will be selected every five years to receive a full Bishops education – benefactors will receive progress reports about the pupil as they progress through Bishops. This programme currently funds fees for a boy in perpetuity.  Any additional contributions will be invested with a hope to grow funds to include boarding fees and extras (books, laptops, tours etc).
