the opportunity fund

By making a gift to The Opportunity Fund at the College, you can transform the life of a bright pupil from a low income family, giving them the chance of an independent education.  Whatever you can afford, will help a bursary pupil to reach their potential, ensuring that their contribution to society is not lost.  To find out more about the Opportunity Fund, please contact Caroline Notman on 0141-331-9274 or
