Barry T. Jones Fund - Charitable, Independent Schools

Under the terms of Barry Theo Jones' Will, a fund has been established to provide grants to Charitable Independent Schools, engaged in Secondary education, within the City and County of Bristol.

The late Mr Barry T Jones (1922-1991) was headmaster of the former Avonhurst School, Clifton Down, Bristol. Bristol Charities invites applications from schools, not individual pupils.

Criteria: 

The following terms of reference apply:

  • It is an annual competition for grants up to £15,000.
  • Schools will be expected to demonstrate that they have identified match funding from school or other sources.
  • Schools may submit more than one application, up to a maximum of three.
  • Schools are encouraged to be imaginative and creative in their applications.
  • Grants are not intended as school bursaries or to provide incremental additions to school premises or equipment.
  • Bristol Charities anticipates that the grants will bring "added value" and make an identifiable difference.
  • Schools may identify a group or child with exceptional talent or needs, for whom they wish to establish funding. This might include the improvement of facilities for children with sight or hearing impairment.
