Sedbergh School Roger Lupton Scholarships

  • I was simply humbled, nearly to the point of tears, by this boy's story. He is a tribute to the School, himself and his family; as is the School and the Foundation to him in recognising, supporting and nurturing this young man.

  • The opportunity to uplift the lives of young people is an extraordinary privilege. This was Roger Lupton’s original inspiration and it remains as important now as it was during the Sixteenth century when he founded our School.

Many youngsters today are unable to realise their full potential through lack of opportunity to both discover and develop their talents. The education provided at Sedbergh School is acknowledged to deliver on both fronts but, for financial reasons, is not available to many likely to benefit from it - including those living in the relatively deprived areas of cities in the north and midlands. We are working with charities to provide these life changing opportunities.


Over the last 7 years since the project was started we have been able to fund 100% scholarships for 12 young people at the school. The ambition is to create two more places each September for new Roger Lupton Scholars. Additional pastoral support will be provided to the individual and family as required throughout the scholarship period. After leaving School the pupils will benefit from the support of the extended Sedbergh School community for social and career networking.
