Scholarship Fund

An active, accessible and varied scholar programme does much to enhance the academic and cultural life of the school. While a bursary is based on financial need, a scholarship is awarded on merit in a particular discipline, such as Academic, Music or Sport. A scholarship offers life-changing opportunities for talented young people whatever their background.

To fund our wide range of scholarships, Christ College draws on its own resources from a designated Scholarship Fund. We look to OBs, friends and supporters to support pupils through our Scholar Programme by donating to the Scholarship Fund.

This fund is for scholarships only and you can support it by clicking on the link below. 

If you wish to have a scholarship in your name e.g. the John Smith History scholar or the John Smith Rugby scholar please contact Martyn Thomas, the Development Director, who can talk through options with you. 

A few words on our Scholar Programme from Harry Mackridge, Deputy Head (Academic)

The provision of scholarships and bursaries lies at the heart of our academic mission at Christ College Brecon. We are rightly proud of our academic successes in and beyond the classroom. Each year, we seek to attract the very best local, national and international intellectual talent to benefit from a Christ College education whatever their background.

As a school with numerous entry points there are a number of scholarship opportunities available at each stage of our community - all the way through from 11+ and 13+ to Sixth Form entry. Scholarships range in type and cover disciplines such as Art, Music, Drama, Science, All-rounder, Sport and general Academic.

There has never been a better time to be a Christ College Scholar. A revamped, bespoke Scholar Programme was launched in September 2023, with junior, middle and senior school pathways provided to enhance the experience of our pupils. In conjunction with this programme, our historic Library has undergone refurbishment and acts as the epi-centre of academic enrichment, engagement and scholarship at each stage of the Scholar Programme.

Christ College is a forward-thinking, outward-looking historic institution which takes great pride in the number of scholarship opportunities available in the academic and co-curricular sphere - but we need your support to continue and develop this programme.

Cai Williams is currently undertaking a PHD at LSE

I came to CCB as an academic and music scholar, and since then I have gone on to an undergraduate degree at LSE, a master’s at Cambridge, and finally back to LSE, where I am pursuing a PhD. What was CCB to me looking back? A place where I was free to ask questions, where I was challenged, taken seriously – and most importantly – rewarded for hard work. For these reasons, CCB has been extraordinarily valuable to me in the years since.
