Assistance from the Canon Holmes Memorial Trust

The Canon Holmes Memorial Trust provides a comparitively small amount of assistance which must be applied for on an annual basis

The amount of assistance which the Trust can give is comparatively small and has to be applied for on an annual basis. No guarantee can be given that assistance will be for more than one year. Each application is considered on its own merits and in strictest confidence. Under the terms of the Trust Deed it is not possible to consider payment of fee arrears.

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.
