The Canon Holmes Memorial Trust applications are only accepted from parents and/or guardians
All applications must come from parents and/or guardians and not the school. When awards are made the school is informed and all monies paid direct to the school. When initially considering applying parents are invited to speak to the Head Teacher or to contact the Honorary Secretary of the Trust direct if some clarification is required.
Initially, all Intending applicants must have been able to fund their child/children’s independent education satisfactorily, that is to say funding will not be available for children at the outset of their education in the independent sector. Parents must live within the bounds of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Brentwood or the Anglican Diocese of Chelmsford, the boundaries of which are generally co-terminus with that of the County of Essex together with the 5 East London Boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Newham, Redbridge and Waltham Forest. It is not a requisite that applicants should be members of the Roman Catholic Church or the Church of England. Support may be given to pupils attending independent schools anywhere across the country.
