A Scholarship in memory of a true Scholar
Following the passing of David Raeburn, we are launching a scholarship for a sixth form student who intends to study Classics or related subject at university. We are looking to find this through donations from Old Whitgiftians and members of the Whitgift community, those who were witness to his humour, kindness and good sensibility.
There is a recording of the memorial held at Croydon Minster in David Raeburn's honour available here.
Whitgift is a special school with a unique history and is on the path to a very bright future. David is as much a part of the future of the School as he is the history, and I feel very fortunate to have known him, to have been taught by him, and to have had the benefit of being educated at his School.
