Charity Profile

The Emmott Foundation

Registered Charity No.209033


Founded in 1961, the Emmott Foundation awards grants to students for their Sixth Form years in fee-paying schools, including state boarding schools. Students will normally have high academic standards and their parents or guardians will no longer be able to meet their planned financial commitments for education as a result of a sudden or unexpected family crisis, such as death, accident, severe illness, divorce, desertion or loss of employment.


In exceptional cases, the Trustees will consider applications on behalf of students with lower grades. Consideration will also be given to cases where there is a major educational, social or pastoral need. Grants are made only where the school is willing to make a significant contribution to the fees.


"Without the grant he would not have been able to remain with us after Year 11. He made the most of the many opportunities offered here and proved a superb ambassador for the school".
- One of the schools that a supported child attended

"The Emmott Foundation has made such a difference. My daughter has grown in stature in so many ways; she is a wonderful success story."
