Chairman’s Trust

The Chairman’s Trust provides some financial assistance for students who are financially disadvantaged to support their education through residential visits. If you would like to participate in a residential visit organised by school, but feel that you would struggle to meet the full cost of the visit, please read the Chairman’s Trust information booklet and then speak to your Year Leader in the first instance about making an application for financial support. Please note that applications from students in receipt of Free School Meals or Pupil Premium are likely to take priority.

The Application Process

There are three opportunities to apply for funding each year.  These need to made at least a term in advance of the visit.
The next round of applications will be open from 1st June 2015 to the end of term for Autumn term 2015 onwards.
Applications can be made in the Autumn term 2015 for Spring term 2016 onwards.
A further round will be available in the Spring term 2016 for Summer term 2016 onwards.
Applications need to be completed online by pupils with the support of their teacher, if required.  Applications are considered on an individual basis by the Trustees, who will assess the application against the eligible criteria. In addition, Trustees will also consider the impact of the potential visit prior to allocating funding.  The Trust is not intended as a replacement for the Pupil Premium therefore the Head Teacher will act as the gate keeper for each application in the first instance. All applicants will be members of a school within the borough of Cheshire West and Chester.
