The AP100 Campaign - more than just a number

The ambition of the AP100 Campaign was to raise £10 million to fund 100 Assisted Places by summer 2016 - and we are delighted that we have now achieved this target.

However, the AP100 Campaign is not just about numbers. It is about boys and their lives. It is about the school helping boys from ordinary backgrounds achieve extraordinary things, something King Edward's has done for centuries. Thanks to the support of over 1,500 donors - including former pupils and their parents - 100 boys from a wide range of backgrounds and communities in Birmingham and beyond will get the education that so many Old Edwardians have enjoyed, an education that could change their lives.

We are very fortunate to have twelve AP100 Ambassadors, and their reasons for supporting the campaign can be found on the Ambassadors page. You can still support the Campaign and help us ensure that King Edward's School remains accessible for generations of boys to come.

The Campaign was featured in article in The Independent on 4th July 2014 - you can read the article here.
