Peter Beckwith Scholarships 25th Anniversary
Old Harrovian Peter Beckwith OBE (Elmfield 1958³) founded the Peter Beckwith Harrow Trust in 1992.
The scheme pays for two boys, each year, to go from a state primary school to a prep school for two years and then on to Harrow.
In the last 25 years, 50 award-holders have been educated at Harrow. The boys have been exceptional pupils, four have gone on to become Heads of School, one a Deputy Head of School, a dozen have been School Monitors and the vast majority have gone on to the very top universities.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary, we launched a campaign to replenish the fund, with the help of our Beckwith Scholars.
Our aim is, first, to bring the fund back to at least its original level of £4 million and, second, to ensure Beckwith Scholars at Harrow in perpetuity. At summer 2020, the fund has reached £2.1 million.
The Beckwith Scholars have undertaken a wide range of inspiring sponsored activities to raise funds.
