Raising funds for our Roger Lupton Scholars
£25,000 raised via the Big Give Christmas Challenge
2022 marks a decade of your support for our Roger Lupton Scholars. The remarkable opportunities you have provided deserving young people has been of incredible value to both the School and those who have benefitted from your ongoing donations. To date, we have raised an incredible £2.1m towards the education of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds.
In our magnificent landscape, the chance to experience the balanced and forward thinking education Sedbergh offers is a transformative experience for any young person. We are a proudly Northern school, with an honest ethos that leaves its stamp on all Sedberghians who pass through our cloisters and fells.
As we approach our 500th anniversary in 2025, we are putting our Roger Lupton Scholars front and centre in our vision for the Sedbergh we want to pass on to the next generation.
Our challenge has been set. We wish to have at least fifteen fully funded Scholars in the School by 2025.

Our target this year was £16,500, and because of your generous support, we raised £25,000 in 7 days towards a scholar's education in the future.
We – and particularly the Scholars – are very grateful to everyone who supported this Appeal.
