THE FOUNDATION WAS LAUNCHED IN 2002 AS PART OF THE 150TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE OPENING OF VICTORIA COLLEGE.
It was related to support the ever-changing needs of school life and to help sustain the long-held tradition of providing quality education for all. It plays a vital role in fundraising for capital projects that allow the school to continue to expand and enhance its facilities to meet the needs of our boys, the school and education in general. Since December 2020, the Foundation was re-formed as a Jersey limited company and included on the Jersey Charities Register (No 412).
The main objectives of the Foundation are to:
- Widen access to the education offered by Victoria College, through the provision of bursaries; and
- Advance the education of students at Victoria College by providing financial support for the enhancement of the educational and developmental experience on offer to its students.
Money raised via alumni events and other fund-raising programmes, such as our Foundation Partner initiative, generates funding to facilitate the Foundation's main objectives.
The Patrons of the Foundation are:
His Excellency Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton GCB, LLD(Hon), DSc(Hon), BSc, FRAeS, CCMI and The Bailiff of Jersey, Mr Timothy Le Cocq QC

Our Foundation Partners contribute financially via a minimum sponsorship of £7,000 (renewable annually), which is approximately the cost of a year's school fees. These much valued funds go towards funding bursaries (we currently support 53 boys on a range of full to partial bursaries), enhancing our facilities, supporting our students and staff with additional equipment or activities that enhance their learning (when not covered by our school's budget) and maintaining the Old Victorian alumni network.
In working closely with the school and becoming an integral part of school life, our Foundation Partners are not only contributing to Victoria College, they are vital investors in the education of Jersey's young people and in the future of the island's workforce and talent.
