The Love and Service Fund

Over the decades, thousands and thousands of families have supported the Vaughan. Love and Service is an opportunity for each one of us to leave our mark on the School.’ 
John Tobias, Old Vaughanian 1931-41. 

Cardinal Vaughan is a school founded on philanthropy. During its over 100-year history it has grown and developed with the support of its incredible community. We have been able to put up new buildings, invest in our staff, and provide exceptional extra-curricular provision. 

In the last 10 years, state schools across the country have seen their funding frozen, with rising costs and cuts to grants. Covid has led to increased costs falling to schools, whilst restricting their ability to actively fundraise. The result has been less money to spend on each pupil, and we are looking to our community to ensure we can continue to provide the same exceptional education we have always offered our pupils, regardless of their background. We therefore ask all families, friends and Old Vaughanians to consider how they can best support the school.
