Within the past 100 years, MGS has been through some turbulent periods: the move to Old Hall Lane during the Great Depression, the evacuation during World War 2, the phased removal of government financial support from the Direct Grant and Assisted Places schemes, the financial crash of 2008 and now today, the Covid-19 pandemic. When the next history of the School is produced, I have no doubt that the current period will feature heavily in its writing.
Maurice Watkins CBE
Chairman of Governors and Chairman of the Bursary Now Appeal
We hope that our supporters will include The MGS Trust in their charitable giving today and honour the intentions of our founder, Bishop Hugh Oldham, in supporting a school which exists to benefit all able boys in the North West of England.
We are enormously grateful to all those who have already supported the MGS vision of re-establishing a truly needs blind admission policy to the School.
Head of the Junior School
The Bursary Fund and the School’s determination to remain an academic meritocracy is something of considerable importance to the staff at MGS. I am delighted to include the Bursary Fund amongst my chosen charities.
Chair of the MGS Common Room
MGS is an institution whose values are enduring. Giving to MGS will make a real difference to someone’s life and enhance the education of all pupils.
Chair of the MGS Parents Society
Providing access to all that MGS has to offer for those in greatest need matters more than ever to me in these tough times. I am delighted to support the School's work and hope you feel the same
I have recently started making a regular donation to the MGS Bursary Fund. Each generation of Old Mancunians has benefited from the generosity of those who have gone before them – and I feel it is now my turn to support the Bursary Now Appeal.
