Sedbergh Senior School - Roger Lupton Scholarship

The Roger Lupton Scholarship Appeal was launched in 2012 in the hope that it would provide real ‘life changing’ opportunities for many years to come. Two factors were critical to achieving this aim:

  • The true and demonstrable need of the recipients
  • A long term commitment from the School

After 7 years the Appeal has generated funds of over £1.5m and improved the life chances of 15 youngsters.  Another scholar has started at Sedbergh this year and we hope to maintain this momentum into the future. You will be able to read the comments from some of the recipients of these awards, the Headmaster and some of our donors in the November 2019 Newsletter >>> 

To safeguard the education of these and future scholars, the Foundation has to continue to generate financial support for this worthwhile cause. The long term success of the programme depends on your ongoing help. If you are in a position to support this scheme, regular or one off donations can be made online >>> or by downloading a donation form >>> 

Some supporters have found the donation of shares a particularly tax efficient way of donating to the endowment fund.  Should you be interested in this option, further information on how to donate shares and other assets to charity can be found here >>>


In 2019, once again, we were accepted by ‘The Big Give Christmas Challenge’, the UK’s biggest online match funding campaign.

This is a novel online fundraising event taking place over 7 days from midday Tuesday 3 December until midday Tuesday 10 December. Thanks to the ‘Big Give Christmas Challenge’, donations made to the Roger Lupton Scholarship programme over this period will receive matched funding. Find out more here >>>


A number of the Houses have used the opportunity of an Anniversary celebration to launch a House Appeal to support a Roger Lupton Scholarship.
