Driving social mobility by broadening access to life-changing opportunities at the UK's leading schools

Dulwich College

Royal National Children's SpringBoard Foundation (RNCSF) works to bring the transformational opportunities offered by the UK's leading schools to the young people who will benefit from them the most. By 2025 we aim to have supported 2,000 young people from challenging circumstances to access these opportunities - changing their futures, influencing their peers and becoming role models to others.

"My bursary placement opened my eyes to opportunities and experiences that I never knew existed."

Esther attended Wellington College on an RNCSF bursary and is now studying Theology and Philosophy at the University of Cambridge. 

Our impact stories

Our evidence shows that we are having a measurable impact as an engine for social mobility: transforming individual life chances, building a movement of inspirational role models and extending the provision of bursary and outreach opportunities to more children and young people facing challenging circumstances. Now we are looking to scale our impact.


'Through being a SpringBoarder and attending St Mary’s, I have learnt to be more confident and independent both in and outside of my studies.'


''My aim is not only to improve my own life, but also become a role model for other young people just like me.'


'The stability that a boarding school offers allows me to flourish at A-Level and build a healthy study routine.'
