I have purposely not put a name or photo on to avoid any embarrassment at school. Truly an amazing school, that provides first class education in getting the pupils 'World Ready'.
Walking into the Headmasters initial interview feeling we weren't probably good enough was forgotten within seconds. The passion, care and inspiration that comes from the top of this school knows no boundaries. Walking around the school with the Headmaster, each pupil was truly excited to share something about their day or book with him, like I'd never seen before.
Thinking about private education years ago, I would of rather saved money for the future", but now I've appreciated it's true value, especially at Ardingly and the advert 'Becoming World Ready' doesn't give the college enough praise.
Having passed her exams and offered a place at Ardingly College we were blown away with excitement and petrified at the same time. Driving away on her first day, after leaving her at the 'kiss & drop' I watched her walk away with pride in her step. I've continued to feel proudness every single day, in the classroom gaining merits, Headmaster awards for outstanding work efforts, with sporting Colours, medals and shields.
Continuing to improve, even going in on weekends for extra revision before entrance exams have never once made me doubt our decision to give it a go.
WHERE WE ARE AT NOW...
Having struggled, borrowed and scraped together the fees up till now has been such immense pressure. I don't regret using all of our savings and more in what has been an incredible number of years so far. As a family we are unable to fit any more hours into our working careers to improve our financial position. With all the will in the world we've reached our limits and thats why we are here asking for your support. Unfortunately bursaries are very limited.
Our first goal with your help is to complete the Senior school then if we are blessed by your kindness, given the support we need hopefully Sixth form.
Seeing the successful results, careers, kindness of Old Ardinian's from Ardingly College our aim would be one day to pass on the act of kindness to another, so somebody else has the experience of a private education that opens so many more opportunities to go out into the world.
Please may I ask, can you share the link with others who appreciate the value of such a privileged education particular those who've attended Ardingly who may also want to give back.
I'd finally like to thank you for any financial support you are able to give in enabling our daughter to complete her education at Ardingly College, however small or large will be received with a huge amount of appreciation. We also have another funding page on another website and will update each one with donations from the other, so please don't think we are trying for double.
QUOTES TO FINISH WITH...
Your education is the passport to life'.

We've worked so hard and don't want all our efforts so far, gone to waste by not getting the prize for crossing the finish line! Amazing school that provides first class education, we come so far...I have purposely not put name/photo on to avoid embarrassment.
