A Tradition of Philanthropy

Summer Fields has been strengthened over the generations by benefaction. We are fortunate that the generosity of our supporters has enabled us to invest in the future and to prepare our boys to go on and lead lives which draw upon Summer Fields' belief in confidence, self-discipline, responsibility and the pursuit of excellence.

The Next Chapter

We are delighted to announce the completion of our most recent development program to equip the school for 21st Century learning.

New Room has undergone a spectacular transformation to become the new school library, complete with a mezzanine level for quiet study, an adjoining non-fiction library, a dedicated periodicals room and a permanent archive display.

A complete refurbishment of the Chapel to restore and preserve this important part of our heritage is now complete.

Bursaries and scholarships

The Maclaren Foundation provides funded places to boys who, for financial reasons would not otherwise be able to afford a Summer Fields education.

It is important that we continue to expand our bursary provision. The Maclaren Foundation has grown over the past fifteen years and we are now able to provide substantial bursaries every year to boys who would not otherwise be able to afford a Summer Fields education. Further fundraising to boost the Maclaren Foundation’s endowment fund is a key part of our development program. 

A message of thanks to all our supporters

Since its foundation, legacies have played, and continue to play, a major part in the history of Summer Fields. Charitable bequests from alumni and Friends make a great difference to the lives of the boys and our school community.

Because Summer Fields is a charitable institution, all bequests to the school are free from Inheritance Tax. If you are considering leaving a gift in your will to Summer Fields and would like to discuss the matter, please get in touch.
