Re: PETITION: Is 26% Full-Fee Paying Pupils Too High?

There's been some great success from the 1552 Petition, and it's definitely opened some dialog with the Counting House and the School. It's influenced the powers-that-be that there's a shared ideal of reducing FFPs, and we should now have a chance to input effectively into the next Business Plan. Th...

Re: PETITION: Is 26% Full-Fee Paying Pupils Too High?

I suggest this would be counter-productive, as there are some good conversations still going on. It's a massive challenge for CH to reduce the number of FFPs,unless there's a massive injection cash, either annually or as a massive lump-sum into the endowment (approx. £100m!). It's crucial that that ...

Re: PETITION: Is 26% Full-Fee Paying Pupils Too High?

Unfortunately not - but I'd welcome any factual data sources which are public and available, as I'd love to be able to show the benefit and positive consequences of the FFPs, to therefore show the size of the hole which fundraising/cost savings would have to fill in order to reduce the number of FFPs.

Re: PETITION: Is 26% Full-Fee Paying Pupils Too High?

I have some factual numeric analysis of the FFP, "Needy", and "Assisted Places" numbers from 2005/06 to 2014/15, which I've been working on on behalf of the 1552 Petition team.
I'll post this later this afternoon once I can upload it at home...

Worth noting that the map is only where we have the location, without trying to correct any typos etc in the data, and also only from the online petition information which was also used to produce the graph....

Giving back to CH - some ideas....

With the recent debate around the 1552 petition, the number of full fee paying pupils, and the desire to ensure CH can deliver as many subsidised or free places as possible, it’s clear that there’s a financial gap which needs filling. Over the years, I’ve given mostly my time to CH, having been part...

(split out off-topic comments again - please keep this on topic, to help support spreading the word about the petition, to allow Old Blues to read and decide whether this is something they wish to support. The off topic posts have their own topic in the same section of the forum.)

Re: Split-out post from the Petition/FFP topic.

I have again split out comments which are off topic (which takes my time to do) - let's honour David's request, and try to keep the Petition conversation on topic, and feel free to use this topic for continued discussion (whilst sticking within the Ts and Cs of the Forum please.)
