Get Involved

Help us increase the number of sponsored students and improve the facilities at the School.  We thank you for your interest and look forward to hearing from you.

Sponsor a child

Become a sponsor for a child aged 6 to 16 attending St Xavier’s School (for up to ten years) . The annual suggested donation per student is currently £110 per annum and this entire amount goes directly to the School. This sponsorship fee is a partial contribution to the student’s educational fees only and does not cover the cost of any extracurricular activities. Ideally we encourage sponsors to commit sponsorship for five years.

Annually, these sponsorship grants are awarded to economically disadvantaged students regardless of race, ethnic group, disability, religion, or any other personal, cultural or social categorization.

All students are awarded the same grant; there are no age variations. Each student must reach a required  academic standard in order to be promoted to the next year and reapply for the sponsorship grant.

Sponsor-a-Sponsor (S-a-S)

Put simply, this means ‘fund a sponsor’. This is a new initiative whereby current sponsors, wanting to remain indirectly involved with the charity, pay the sponsorship fees on behalf of others. S-a-S is seeing more  young people, many of whom are less financially able to commit to a 10 year sponsorship programme, participate in the scheme. To find out more click here

All sponsors receive:

  1. The profile of their sponsored student:
  2. Performance results (by subject) of each student twice a year;
  3. An annual Christmas letter from each student.

During the pandeminc we have been unable to provide the above but we post regular news and videos on the  website.  We remain in close contact with the school Principal and students via regular zoom calls.  

All correspondence is through the Principal of the School.

Contribute to the Further Education (FE) Fund

Contribute to the Further Education Fund where grants are allocated to students who meet the selection criteria according to the nature of their further education course. These students must be both academically able and from a socially and economically disadvantaged background and hence in need of financial support.

On an annual basis, the Principal recommends to the Charity those FE students eligible for a grant based on an assessment of the economic situation of the respective student/family and satisfactory academic progress.

The Students are required to submit twice yearly progress reports to the Charity through the Principal.

Donate to Upgrade School Facilities

From time to time benefactors of JMB Educational Fund make one-off donations to improve facilities at the School.

A specific donation can be made to the construction costs of the New Academic Block. This can be of any amount or specifically for one classroom.

A report of the building progress of the New Academic Block will be sent to the donors and status updates are posted in the blog on this website.

Help us with time & expertise
