TONBRIDGE TOGETHER

A MESSAGE

from the Chair of Governors The founding of Tonbridge School by Sir Andrew Judde in the 16th century was an act of philanthropy. His objective was to educate able boys to serve society, regardless of their race, creed or social background. That objective had a context and an underlying purpose: that the boys should contribute to society and, in particular, help others within their local and wider communities. As Chairman of Governors, I would like to extend a sincere thank you to parents, Old Tonbridgians and friends of Tonbridge for your generosity and support over the past year. This generosity has been expressed in many ways, from donations to Excellence for All, to careers guidance and time to help current boys and young Old Tonbridgians. If you have chosen to support us financially, whether to facilitate the completion of the Barton Science Centre or by contributing to our life-changing Foundation Awards programme, your gift to the school has been essential and hugely appreciated. This report is one way of expressing thanks, and to provide reassurance that gifts donated have been well spent. It also enables us to demonstrate the impact of this support, not only on current boys and past generations of Tonbridgian families but also on our local community. The school is committed to sharing expertise, energy and facilities for the

01 | 02

benefit of the wider community, where it can. As you will see from this report, the school’s partnership and charity work, whether local, national or international, is remarkable. Not only are these initiatives an important part of raising awareness among our boys of the wider world, but they remind pupils not to take for granted their good fortune and that they have a social obligation to help others. The Tonbridge Society, in partnership with the Old Tonbridgian Society and Parents’ Arts Society, continues to provide a diverse and engaging range of events and opportunities for all its members. These initiatives are a way for parents and Old Tonbridgians to share knowledge and ideas, and to network, mentor and socialise across the generations. We are very grateful to the parent and Old Tonbridgian volunteers who enable this network to thrive. I wholeheartedly encourage all of you to get involved, if at all possible. Through all these initiatives we continue to draw upon a long tradition of philanthropy, and in so doing we continue to develop and adapt the school for the future. I hope you will enjoy reading about the achievements of the Tonbridge School community and thank you once more for your support and involvement. Robert Elliott Chair of Governors

HEADMASTER’S MESSAGE

2019 is a year that I will cherish for many reasons.

In August I completed my first academic year at the school, and as I look back and reflect on my time here to date I am delighted to say that I have found Tonbridge to be a thoroughly stimulating environment in which to live and work. I knew this was an extraordinary school to belong to, but our experience as a family has exceeded our expectations. I continue to be impressed by the richness of opportunity we offer, and the breadth and depth of the boys’ educational experience; at the same time, I am often moved by the profound sense of community, support and camaraderie that we have here. All are key aspects of our daily life at the school and it has been a privilege to be able to play a part in the ongoing Tonbridge story. I must also confess to being proud of the achievements of the school in 2019. In

03 | 04

the autumn we were named as the Independent Boys’ School of the Year in a national awards ceremony. This was a tremendous tribute to the hard work, dedication and commitment of our staff and boys, and demonstrates how much there is to celebrate in our thriving school. The panel of judges praised Tonbridge for developing a keen sense of social responsibility in our boys, for our charitable activities and community outreach, and for our record of academic and pastoral excellence. Perhaps the single stand-out event of 2019 for me was the opening of the Barton Science Centre: a world-class facility which has hugely enhanced the academic and intellectual life of the school. Named in honour of former Tonbridge pupil and Nobel Prize winner Sir Derek Barton, this was the largest capital project we have ever undertaken, and it has been inspirational to witness the transformation of the original


Headmaster’s Message

science centre into a 21st century building. The centre places the school at the forefront of teaching and learning in modern science, both nationally and internationally. As the Barton Science Centre received its official launch, we became the first UK school to host the ‘Mission Discovery’ programme, in which NASA astronauts Dr Michael Foale CBE and Dr Steve Swanson helped lead a week of super-curricular experiences. It was wonderful to see many young people from across the Skinners family of schools, as well as local girls’ schools, working together in a week of space and science-related activities. There was a tangible buzz of excitement as the school became something of an ‘intellectual laboratory’. For some of the pupils, the week ended with a once-in-a-lifetime reward when their experiment was chosen to be flown to the International Space Station. The completion of the Barton Science Centre saw the culmination of the first Excellence for All campaign, launched a decade ago, and I must express my deep gratitude to all those who, through their vision and support, have made it possible for us to enjoy this transformative new facility. The centre has a wider role, too, as a hub for teaching and learning in STEM subjects, for research for the wider region, and for use by the community. Our Family Day attracted hundreds of young people who, with their parents and other family and friends, explored the centre and took part in a series of experiments; and our Science for Schools programme sees Tonbridge boys leading fun, inspiring sessions during the term for many primary school classes. More than 120 students from the UK, Germany and Japan attended an international science conference, presenting their own work and discussing scientific topics ranging from robotics to tackling cancer. We saw great success in our exam results in 2019: at GCSE, boys achieved one of our strongest performances on record with 92 per cent of all results being at Grades 9, 8 and 7, the equivalent to A* or A in the previous system. I was very proud of our Third Year boys for setting

such impressive standards. At A-level, we also saw another excellent set of results with 90 per cent of grades being A*, A, B or their Pre-U equivalent. The school’s academic strength is also illustrated in the quality and range of the university offers our boys receive. Our 2019 leavers took up places at many of the UK’s leading universities, including Oxford, Cambridge and a range of Russell Group institutions. Once more, the large majority of leavers secured their first-choice destination and there are growing numbers of boys achieving their ambition of studying at prestigious universities abroad, particularly in the USA. A further exciting development in the intellectual life of the school is that we are launching a new Sixth Form Curriculum from September 2020. This will provide multiple pathways for boys in their final two years at Tonbridge, with a whole host of new courses, examined and non-examined, designed to give them more choice and to provide what we believe is the best preparation possible for university and future careers. As many of you will know, widening access is a subject very close to my heart. It is essential that we continue to enable bright, able boys to be able to come to Tonbridge, regardless of their family’s financial circumstances, so they, too, can benefit from all we have here and make their contribution to the life of the school. Going forward, our mission to make the school more widely accessible is a key part of the school’s strategy, and an important focus for our future fundraising efforts. By doing so, and by increasing the number of awards we can offer in future years, I believe we will have even more to celebrate and to feel rightly proud of. It’s exciting to consider not only what we have already achieved as a school but what we have the potential to go and do in the future.

IMPACT Independent School of the Year 2019 Tonbridge was named as the Independent Boys’ School of the Year for 2019. The judging panel praised Tonbridge for its programme of co-curricular breadth and depth, for developing a keen sense of social responsibility in its boys, for showing environmental commitment and for its record of academic and pastoral excellence. Music success at the highest level In the past year, no fewer than 100 per cent of candidates sitting for Grade 8 in the Associated Board Exams have achieved either a merit or a distinction. In addition, nearly three quarters achieved either a merit or a distinction for Grade 7. Similarly, 100 per cent of candidates achieved a distinction for the new ARSM (Associate of the Royal Schools of Music) diploma. 05 | 06

Outstanding exam results In one of the school’s strongest ever performances, 15 boys received a ‘clean sweep’ of GCSE Grade 9s. The average outcome is the equivalent of 8A*s and 2As at GCSE. Nearly two thirds of all A-Level results were graded A*/A, and 15 of the school’s Upper Sixth Formers achieved a remarkable ‘clean sweep’ of A* or equivalent grades. The ‘average’ outcome for a Tonbridge leaver this year is AAA. National prizes A Tonbridge team came 1st and another 3rd at the Schools’ Aerospace Challenge 2019. Candidates were tasked with analysing threats posed by unmanned aerial vehicles such as drones, to UK airspace. Tonbridge boys also set a ‘gold standard’ with strong performances in the Senior Biology Olympiad, British Physics Olympiad and Intermediate Maths Olympiad. In the competitions, gold medals were awarded to 17 boys, silver to 12, and bronze to a further 18 boys.

Sporting accolades In another excellent year for Tonbridge cricket, the school’s U15 were crowned as Kent Cup champions, remaining unbeaten in all their Saturday fixtures during the season. The U14s won the Oliver Cup, whilst the First XI were once more Cowdrey Cup champions, remaining unbeaten in the competition for the second year running. The side were also regional (South East) winners of the HMC National Schools T20 competition. In athletics, the Intermediate Relay Team set a new school 4x100m record time of 44.1 seconds, also taking the Lord Burleigh relay title at Eton in May. Tonbridge’s golf team won the West Sussex Invitational Tournament scratch trophy for the first time, and also retained the Smarden Bell trophy – one of the most prestigious competitions in regional school sport.

SPOTLIGHT: MISSION DISCOVERY In March 2019, Tonbridge became the first UK school to host ‘Mission Discovery’.

The prestigious educational programme is run by ISSET, the International Space School Educational Trust, and gives senior school students the opportunity to spend time working alongside NASA astronauts and renowned scientists, creating ideas for new scientific experiments that can be carried out in space. There was a true buzz of excitement and a spirit of exploration as Lower Sixth students from several Kent schools arrived at the newly opened Barton Science Centre on Monday 18th March in order to take part and write their own piece of history. Schools embarking on Mission Discovery, in addition to Tonbridge, included Tunbridge Wells Girls’ Grammar School, The Marsh Academy, The Judd School, The Skinners’ School, Skinners’ Academy and Weald of Kent Grammar School.

07 | 08

Helping to run the week-long programme at Tonbridge were NASA astronauts and former International Space Station (ISS) commanders Dr Michael Foale CBE and Dr Steve Swanson. Dr Foale, the first British-born NASA astronaut, is an astrophysicist who has been into space on six missions; Dr Swanson, an engineer, has completed four spacewalks. Over the course of the week, students progressed from initial ‘brainstorming’ to perfecting their ideas, before presenting them to a panel of expert judges. For the winners, the prize was out of this world: the winning entry will be built by scientists from King’s College London and NASA, launched to the International Space Station and, ultimately, be carried out by the astronauts aboard. The ISS is described by NASA as “the most famous laboratory on Earth ... or off it”, and there was a friendly yet intense competition among

Knowing that something that I directly contributed to will be put in space is incredible. I will be watching the launch from wherever I can … it’s not every day that your experiment gets launched into space to be tested on the ISS.” Edward Current pupil

students for their design to be chosen. Past winning entries sent into space included those addressing genetics, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. The grand final saw six shortlisted teams making presentations to the panel, after which ‘The Argonauts’ team was named as the winner. It consisted of five pupils: Edward Barry, Godwyn Lai and Thomas Stack, all from Tonbridge, and Sarah Prescott and Abigail Colley, both from Tunbridge Wells Girls’ Grammar School. The students designed an experiment to discover whether yeast is able to undergo sexual reproduction in the microgravity environment of the International Space Station. Their theory was that sexual reproduction between two yeast colonies will result in a new colony able to survive in an environment deficient of both nutrients. It is hoped that the students’ experiment will be flown into space during 2020. Chris Barber, Founder of ISSET, said: “We have carried out Mission Discovery and

other educational programmes all over the world, and the week at Tonbridge School was as enjoyable and successful as any. The students worked very hard and were highly creative, and the judges had a hard time selecting from a great set of presentations. The winner was chosen because it described a brilliantly simple way to carry out a worthwhile experiment that has many potential benefits and applications.” Throughout the week Dr Foale and Dr Swanson gave a series of talks to all year groups at Tonbridge, in which they shared their experiences of travelling into space and living on the International Space Station. Headmaster, James Priory, said it had been “an extraordinary privilege” to host Mission Discovery. “We’ve had an ‘intellectual laboratory’ here at the school, and I’ve been incredibly impressed with the ideas, energy and innovation on display,” he said. “What made it so special was the fact that it put the learning and experience of young people centre stage.”

A YEAR OF THE

BARTON SCIENCE CENTRE One of the most ambitious developments to happen on the campus since the first science building was constructed in 1887, the three-storey centre combines new classrooms and the latest technology with many original architectural features. The departments of Chemistry, Biology and Physics now enjoy greatly expanded facilities, including new laboratories and classrooms. The Barton Science Centre includes an interactive periodic table, a giant TV wall, its own bee hive, a roof garden, a greenhouse and three departmental libraries, to name just a few of its features.

40

The centre also has a wider public benefit as a regional hub and centre of excellence. In 2019, it hosted 120 students from schools from across the UK, Japan and Germany during its Student Science Conference, with 6 schools also taking part in the inaugural Barton Science Competition. The school plans to expand its popular programme of ‘Science for Schools’ days for local primary and secondary pupils, and will also be staging public lectures and a variety of other events.

Having worked in a London office, a North Sea oil rig and two previous independent schools, this is the most exciting environment I have worked in. It’s about enabling teachers to make it as easy as possible to teach. It’s also about creating an environment that uses every single opportunity to educate and enthuse students about science. For example, on each floor there is a library dedicated to that department. Not only are there well-designed desks with lights and laptop plug ins, but there are carefully chosen books, and pictures of famous faces from these disciplines, complete with famous quotes. If we can make an environment that boys want to be in, that’s half the battle won.” Phil Deakin Head of Physics

2 shipping containers Two 40ft shipping containers were purchased and filled with donations for a new Child Development Centre being built by our overseas partner, Child Action Lanka. The charity, with which the school has had links since 2014, works to assist and transform the lives of more than 1,500 disadvantaged children across Sri Lanka. Starting with furniture from our Temporary Science Centre that was not needed in the new Barton Science Centre, a major collection drive was held. Classroom furniture, educational supplies, clothing, books, toys, musical instruments and bicycles were all sourced for the new centre. Opening in summer 2020, the facilities will transform the educational provision for children in six communities in the Batticaloa region of eastern Sri Lanka.

OUR IMPACT IN THE

COMMUNITY How do you provide an education with social responsibility at its core? The school believes that a great education should broaden horizons. Tonbridge continues to place great emphasis on making our boys aware of their responsibilities to society, and the wider world. The huge programme of boys’ volunteering activities and frequent use of our facilities by the local community is an important part of school life, and plays a key part in our boys’ development.

Our impact in the community

£113K The school community raised a record-breaking £113,140 for charities in 2018/19, with staff and boys spending 18,243 hours collectively in voluntary activities. Weekly placements through Tonbridge Community Action (TCA), Duke of Edinburgh placements, Science for Schools, Learning Support Mentoring, conservation work, Field days, Community day and our links with the Marsh Academy have involved every member of staff and boy in some capacity. The community raised an incredible £70,000 for the Child Development Centre in Batticaloa, and Chapel collections and House events also supported a wide range of other charities. Our annual events also broke previous records including Pink Day (raising over £3,000 for Breast Cancer Now), the Novi Sleepout (raising a record-breaking £16,726 for homeless charity, Porchlight). This brings the total raised for Porchlight alone to over £75,000 in the past five years.

Our impact in the community: Open facilities

ANNUAL ACTIVITIES:

By hosting guests, coaching, teaching or just being together, we know that our boys gain from spending time with others outside of the school community while sharing the facilities we are fortunate enough to have. Our annual activities include:

Field Day Twice a year, our boys have a classroom-free day to focus on community projects. The school site becomes host to a range of projects, such as hosting local senior citizens and guests from Scotts Project, a local centre for adults with learning disabilities. Our guests enjoy company and cake, followed by a chamber concert performed by the school’s music scholars.

Community Day The highlight of the calendar year is our annual Community Day when we open our site to more than 600 primary school children. Guests are hosted by our Novi for a fun day of over 30 sporting, artistic and academic activities run by boys from the Lower Sixth, staff, our parent body and visiting experts. Activities include wheelchair basketball, archery, creative writing, dance, science or the ever-popular craft tent.

Community Concert Each January the school invites local senior citizens in for an evening concert, hosted by our 100 TCA boys. All of our guests are collected by volunteer staff or parent drivers and are brought to the school for a wonderful evening of conversation and music.

WEEKLY ACTIVITIES:

On any standard week throughout this year, we welcome over 200 visitors on-site to work with our boys during Wednesday afternoon activities as part of Tonbridge Community Action (TCA) and other schemes:

Sports activities Each week, 65 children from Cage Green Primary School come to enjoy a Multisports programme with six TCA boys and six 2nd year Terriers under their ‘Sports Leadership Programme’. TCA boys also run weekly one-to-one swimming and water confidence lessons for children from the Pheonix Centre for Autism. They also play regular football matches with young men from the HORIZON Project, a vocational training programme for those who do not thrive in a more traditional academic environment.

Educational activities 30 children from local primary schools come to Tonbridge to participate in Science for Schools, a 3-week programme designed to excite and inspire a love of science, run by 12 Tonbridge Science students. 55 children from Royal Rise Primary School also visit weekly through Learning Support to work one-on-one with up to 60 Novi ‘Learning Mentors’ on strategies to help with literacy and numeracy.

Unaccompanied Asylum-Seeking Children The school works with young men (aged 16-18 years) who have arrived in Kent with no adult with them, often after long and traumatic journeys. These boys enjoy regular sessions with TCA boys, playing football and activities and sharing conversational English. Our guests have fun with others their own age, while our boys develop a better understanding of the complex issues of immigration, breaking down perceived barriers, and teaching them to communicate without a shared language.

When my son first joined Tonbridge I was delighted to be invited on the Novi parent walk, followed by a pub lunch. I met lots of other new parents, and it was a perfect introduction to the Parents’ Arts Society. After that, I looked forward to the new programme each term and signed up to many different things from theatre to lectures and tours of various places, sometimes with a friend but also sometimes by myself, knowing that I would always find a friendly face. Having been drawn in, I then found myself on the committee for three years. Here I was given free rein to organise all my favourite things, and got to meet even more people, both current and former parents from across the houses and years.” Victoria Clay Past Parent

SPOTLIGHT:

HOW TONBRIDGE SHAPED ME

with PETE PORTAL

In the Impact Report’s ‘Spotlight’ series, we explore the many ways Tonbridge influences the families that come through it. In this edition, Old Tonbridgian and community activist, Pete Portal looks at how his time at the school broadened his horizons. I came to Tonbridge in 1998 having spent my primary school years at a small choir school of 36 boys. Being one of over 700 pupils meant I immediately went from feeling like a big fish in a small pond to a minnow in what seemed like a vast teenage ocean. I was only able to go to Tonbridge due to a music scholarship and choral bursary – and whilst this was hardly earning of kudos at the time, it gave me wide-ranging musical opportunities that I look back on in amazement. To have been part of a wind quintet, band and orchestra; to sing in the chapel choir weekly, receive musical tuition for three instruments, and play a concerto in the Leavers’ Concert in front of hundreds in Big School – these were unique experiences. I didn’t fully appreciate the immense privilege back then, of course, nor that relatively few would experience such richness of musical experience before the age of 18. Tonbridge gave me a platform to strive for excellence, and to develop confidence in performing in public. I had never played rugby before, and was unsure I wanted to - until being 11 || 18 17 18

on the receiving end of robust encouragement from my Housemaster (which retrospectively I can see as wisdom) to give it a go. I absolutely loved it, and wasn’t totally awful at it – starting in the Bantams F’s but eventually making it to the 2nd XV. That there would be an F’s team is brilliant – everyone could give it a go, all were encouraged to be the best they could be, and a strong sense of pro-social peer pressure pushed me into something I wasn’t sure I had the confidence to try. At Tonbridge there was the prospect of travelling pretty much anywhere in the world if you joined the right society, club or sports team. Memories of hiking in Scotland, football tours to Argentina, Brazil and Italy, pre-season cricket in Malta, and a band trip to the Rhine all stick out as some of the best schoolboy memories one could hope to have. Expanding horizons at such a young age really is invaluable and, again, one of the huge privileges that being at Tonbridge afforded. There was a wonderful combination of intellectual rigour and unpretentiousness about Tonbridge compared with some of the schools we would play against. I think this

gave me the confidence to hold a conversation in pretty much any environment, as we were continually taught how to think, rather than told what to think. We were always challenged to defend our opinion. I think of the house debating competitions which, if you were on another team’s turf, could be spirited affairs to say the least. Today I am a pastor at a church in a township in Cape Town. My wife Sarah and I live in the township with young men seeking freedom from gangs and drug addiction. We regularly hear the sounds of gunshots as gang fights take over for months on end. We are gradually seeing people changed, lives turned around, and an organisation developed to serve a forgotten corner of this beautiful but hurting city. While none of the above memories would have directly equipped me for what I do now, I’m pretty convinced that not a day goes by where I’m not drawing on some of the skills or mindset I learnt at Tonbridge.

FOUNDATION AWARD PROGRAMME

Our Foundation Award programme enables bright and talented boys to access a Tonbridge education regardless of their background.

Supporting the underprivileged has been at the heart of the school’s ethos from its earliest beginnings. Tonbridge School was founded in 1553 by Sir Andrew Judde, a distinguished member of the Worshipful Company of Skinners, which assumed the governance of the school after Judde’s death. We are committed to the continuation of this charitable tradition and are determined to create a sustainable source of funding to support gifted and deserving boys for centuries to come. It is our belief that outstanding schools forge outstanding students, daring in their exploration, bold in their action and creative in their thinking. This kind of school community attracts boys from a diverse range of backgrounds, financial and social, coming together and making something that is greater than the sum of its parts.

21 | 22

If a boy wins his place and there is money available, we will do our best to fill in any funding gaps, following careful means-testing. In addition, where we are providing significant support, we aim to maximise the impact of this charitable spending by finding and supporting boys for whom attending Tonbridge will be a transformative life experience. We would love to do more for the many boys that we turn away each year who apply to Tonbridge for an assisted place. This can only be realised with the generous support of our wider school community.

The Foundation Award Programme

A WORD FROM OUR RECIPIENTS The generosity of our donors ensures that Tonbridge continues its long heritage of transforming the lives of talented boys. Over the next pages, we hear about the positive impact of our Foundation Award programme from three of our 2018 scholars.

The benefits of a Tonbridge education have already opened new doors for me and will, in the future, continue to provide fresh opportunities. Were it not for your amazing support, this would not be possible.

Tonbridge enabled me to form what I hope will be lifelong relationships and prepared me superbly for the daunting challenge of university

Over my five years at Tonbridge, there are far too many special moments to even count, let alone mention, and that is testament to the positive environment which has been cultivated at the school. For me, the boarding experience was probably the most rewarding aspect of school life, in that it enabled me to form what I hope will be lifelong relationships and prepared me superbly for the daunting challenge of university. Academically, of course, the school was also hugely important in nurturing me through exams, but Tonbridge is far more than just an institution for learning; it’s a home from home for five years, and that is what I cherish most about my time there. Focusing on history in particular, which I am currently studying at New College in Oxford, the fantastic array of enthusiastic teachers was a real positive force in increasing my enjoyment of the subject, from my first lesson to the last. In particular, I credit Hugo Macklin for having the biggest impact on my study of History. Although he has now left for pastures new, the way in which he

challenged and adapted my entire approach to the subject was incredibly influential for me and contributed significantly to my decision to study History at university. Another teacher who was always unbelievably helpful and pivotal in my development was Dr James Burbidge. He was able to mould me into not only a better student, but also a better person, for which I can’t thank him enough. Whilst at school, my proudest achievement was undeniably receiving an offer from Oxford, something which I never thought would have been possible before I joined Tonbridge. Studying at one of the most prestigious universities in the world still hasn’t quite sunk in, and I credit Tonbridge wholeheartedly for the support they offered everyone involved in the Oxbridge process. In the future, I hope to pursue a career in journalism after I finish my degree, having already become involved in the production of the student newspaper in Oxford. I offer my warmest thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Foundation Award Programme, as it has been the basis for so much of what has been successful for me in my life.

A word from our recipients

Without the Foundation Award programme I would not have been able to benefit from five great years at Tonbridge School, during which I have been able to compete and excel at the highest level in both the academic and sporting arenas. With the incredible support of my teachers and other boys in Smythe, I was awarded 10 A*s at GCSE and 3A*s and a B at A-Level. The school taught me to lead by example, as a school Prae and Captain of the Cross Country and Athletics club, all of which I thoroughly enjoyed and encouraged me to perform even better individually. I was able to equal the inter 800 and break the senior 800 metre records. In my eyes, this summed up the positive influence and inspiration that the school’s atmosphere and environment had on me. My housemaster Chris Henshall was also a huge influence on me, inspiring me to win trophies for Smythe. I won the House Athletics Cup in Lower and Upper Sixth, but also the House Badminton Cup, a sport which, without him, I would never have come across. He also encouraged me to be more independent as a person and challenge myself inside and out of the classroom.

Some of my fondest memories at Tonbridge were nevertheless outside of school hours, including the many educational trips I was able to go on thanks to the support of the Foundation. I went on the Spanish trip to Valencia, the French trip to Antibes and the Classics trip to Greece, in which I could further my love for the subjects and form stronger bonds with other boys and teachers as well. The 2017 trip to Athens and Delphi became my ultimate inspiration for studying Classics at university. I am currently in the process of applying for Queens’ College Cambridge, and during my Gap Year I am working at the Schools at Somerhill as a Gap Student, witnessing the other side of school life. I’m also planning a trip (with the aid of the Old Tonbridgian Lodge Travel Bursary) to South-East Asia in the summer of 2020. Tonbridge teaches you to be openminded and to make friends and interact with people from all walks of life. I will forever remain grateful for the Foundation Award and all those that support it, for the profound impact it has had on my life so far.

Charlie Crick, SH 14-19


The Foundation Award Programme

The campaign also gave our young OT callers, who were especially recruited and trained for the role, a unique chance to find out more about the career paths of OTs and provide them with valuable work experience in an ever more competitive job market for young graduates. Next campaign: July 2020

Nine years ago, when the opportunity arose to take the exams for the scholarship to Tonbridge, my family and I thought it was a long shot. However, in the following weeks, when I found out I had been lucky enough to have been awarded a place, it was a dream come true! As indeed, were my five years at the school. To study and live as a boarder at the school offered me unparalleled opportunities that I would not have received anywhere else. Of course, academic life was greatly important, and I am so grateful for the fantastic buildings, resources and staff that helped me to learn. Teachers such as Mr Edwards, Mr Dobson and Mr Forkgen were all hugely impactful on me at A-Level and made learning their subjects enjoyable, memorable and greatly interesting. However, the extra-curricular side of the school is what I remember most fondly. Living in a boarding house for five years was an experience that I will never forget. My housemaster, matron and friends in the house were what made my time at Tonbridge and I especially loved the camaraderie in diverse events such as House music, rugby, cricket or even general knowledge. Music was especially important to my school life and I am so proud to say that I was the Head of the

Chapel Choir and Choral music. I loved singing in the Choir, playing in orchestras and bands and participating in House Music, and I am massively thankful for the exceptional musical education I received at Tonbridge School thanks to the Foundation Award Programme. As a student at Tonbridge I am thankful that the school is so well-rounded. I could not have gone to another school and received such an unparalleled academic education, alongside playing a high-level of amazingly well-coached sport, and brilliant music in which the music staff sank hundreds of hours into arranging, conducting and teaching. It is the variety of the school that I am so grateful for. I have now left the school as a rounded student, athlete and musician, but most importantly, as a young man who has been shaped through the academic and pastoral staff through my time at Tonbridge. Thanks to you I was able to attend this amazing establishment and receive opportunities that I could only have dreamed of in the past, and for this I am eternally grateful.

Why I support Tonbridge School

Peter Rawlins Parent Member of the 1553 Society

With the period of investment in new facilities largely completed, the Headmaster has signalled that the school’s development priorities will now be focused on accessibility. Tonbridge has long been a generous provider of awards and bursaries to enable talented but less financially fortunate boys to benefit from all that the school has to offer. But demand for assisted places will always exceed what the school alone can supply and so I welcome the Headmaster’s invitation to the entire Tonbridge community – parents, OTs and friends – to join with the school in funding a meaningful increase in the availability of access support. As a parent, I know how much my own boys have benefited from their Tonbridge experiences and I am delighted to play my

25 | 26

small part in giving something back so as to help others enjoy those benefits too. The creation of the 1553 Society, of which I am a member, is an imaginative way to grow the value of the collective efforts of the Tonbridge community in support of the school without relying on large individual donations. The emphasis is on maximising the number of regular donors, irrespective of their individual contributions, relying on the laws of large numbers to deliver a significant recurring value of support. This inclusive approach to fundraising allows our entire community to play a personal part in helping Tonbridge genuinely deliver its objective of Excellence for All.


Recognising your support

Becoming a member of the Judde Society Since its foundation in 1553, legacies have played a pivotal role in securing a future for Tonbridge School. The school’s founder, Sir Andrew Judde, is also its first legator. He left property in London as an endowment for the school, helping ensure the school’s financial viability beyond his death in 1558. The Judde Society, which takes our founder’s name, was established as a way of saying thank you to those who have decided to, or intend to leave Tonbridge a legacy. Legacies are one of the most effective ways to make an enduring contribution to Tonbridge, but are also

a simple and straightforward way of giving, without affecting the immediate financial needs of yourself and your family. All gifts left to charities in a Will are also exempt from tax and could reduce your inheritance tax rate by 10 per cent. We are always pleased to welcome new members. You will receive a Judde Society pin and tie on joining, and are invited to special school events throughout the year, such as the annual Headmaster’s Summer Drinks, the Annual Carol Service and Drinks Reception, and will also have the opportunity to lunch in your old school house.

Why I support Tonbridge School

Jono Arscott PH 83-88 Member of the Judde Society

My association with the school spans almost 40 years: as a boy, part of the teaching staff for 13 years and of course as an OT. This link with the school, its current and former staff, parents and pupils, with the Old Boys and with the friends of the school represents a major influence on my life and has provided many cross-generational friendships that I love and am wholly grateful for. Tonbridge means a lot to me. I know just how much of a difference it made to me and is still making to the boys and, more broadly, to the families that are coming through it now. I would certainly encourage everyone to come back and visit if they are not already doing so, and to stay, in the words of EM Forster, ‘connected’ or reconnect with Tonbridge.

In leaving a legacy, I am supporting places at a school which sees education as going far beyond the classroom. It will help families in the future that wouldn’t normally be able to afford to attend the school. As you know, the school owes its tremendous history to a bequest by Sir Andrew Judde in 1553. Ever since, legacy gifts from OTs and friends of the school have formed an essential part of helping pupils through Tonbridge and continuing his inspiring vision. By remembering Tonbridge in my Will, I feel as though I am playing a very small part in ensuring, in the words of the school song: ‘This is the school of tomorrow’!


Tonbridge Society Impact Report 2019

TONBRIDGE TOGETHER

AfromMESSAGE the Bursar At Tonbridge, we aim to provide an excellent and broad education, to ensure that each boy fulfils his potential and is able to make a significant contribution both at school and in the adult world. However, our activities also have a positive impact far more broadly: on parents, staff and others who work with and for the school; on members of our local community who use the school’s facilities; and on the local economy. The normal ‘message from the Bursar’ for this report focuses on the school’s financial position, which, for 2018/19, remains ‘sound’. Although, as I said in my last report, the continuing prosperity of the school depends not only on providing an excellent and broad education, but also on generating additional sources of income to help fund investment in buildings and facilities, finance Foundation Awards, and contribute to elements of educational provision. As trading, investment and other income are unlikely to grow materially (given, for example, that further trading growth risks negatively impacting the boys’ experience at the school), and the Judd Foundation Grant is fixed, further fundraising is essential for the school going forward. In this report I thought it helpful to look more broadly at not only the economic impact of the school’s core educational activities, but also at the impact of other school-based activities on our local community. Looking first at our economic impact, the school’s income from core operations (excluding income from trading, fundraising and investment activities) was £29.5m in 2018/19. Wages

27 | 28

and salary costs were £14.1m, and payments to other businesses for goods and services were £17.6m. Using a tool on the Independent Schools Council (ISC) website (which reflects a collaboration between Oxford Economics, RS Academics and the ISC), we are able to assess the impact of the school’s core operations on both the local (Tonbridge and Malling) and national economy by estimating its contribution to gross domestic product (GDP), its impact on the job market, the amount of UK tax supported by its activities, and savings for the UK taxpayer as a result of educating pupils otherwise eligible for a free UK state education. The data used has been based on the draft (subject to audit) Income and Expenditure Statement for the year ended 30th June 2019. Income relating to trading, investment and fundraising activities are specifically excluded, as are any related costs and financing expenditure (specifically loan interest in the context of the school). It is also important to remember that expenditure in the year reflects the completion of the Barton Science Centre, which involved significant ‘local’ expenditure.


A message from the Bursar

IN 2018-2019: The school employed 695 teaching and non-teaching staff, and educated 684 pupils who would otherwise be entitled to a free UK state school place. We estimate that the school, through our core activities, suppliers and staff, contributed significantly to the national and local economy:

THANK YOU Over the last ten years, donations have had a significant impact on current Tonbridgians. Tonbridge was founded on philanthropy and this tradition has continued, paving the way for the future. Your support, however small, directly helps to provide life-changing opportunities to boys, either through broadening horizons with inspirational projects or transforming the lives of those who see an independent school education as out of their reach. All of us at Tonbridge would like to extend our warmest thanks to everyone who has given, pledged or
