DONOR REPORT<br />

DECEMBER <strong>2023</strong>


Principal’s<br />

Welcome<br />

Thank You<br />

It’s hard to believe that we are almost ten years into our 15 year<br />

No Limits Fundraising Campaign which has transformed the<br />

School’s ability to dream big, fund projects, support the<br />

education of pupils and provide facilities that quite simply<br />

could not exist without the generous support of the Watsonian<br />

community and other friends of the School.<br />

From the outset, we set ourselves a shared<br />

goal of raising £25 million by 2030 and the<br />

unwavering commitment of very many<br />

people has already seen us raise over<br />

£13 million towards that target.<br />

Much of that impressive sum has been<br />

raised to fund Foundation Places, providing<br />

truly transformational opportunities for<br />

children from homes across Edinburgh.<br />

Thanks to the work of Ciara Weatherup, our<br />

Wider Access Manager, we are able not only<br />

to identify young people who would benefit<br />

from a Watson’s education, but also support<br />

their families through what can sometimes<br />

be a complicated admissions process and<br />

ensure that there are as few bumps on the<br />

road to success as possible.<br />

The generosity<br />

of individuals,<br />

organisations and<br />

trusts has enabled us<br />

to work in partnership<br />

with state schools in our<br />

neighbourhood to enrich<br />

the education offered<br />

to all.<br />

For me, the No Limits Campaign has never<br />

just been about how much we could raise.<br />

It has always been about how much impact<br />

our fundraising could have on young lives<br />

through Foundation Places; short-term<br />

financial support in times of temporary<br />

need; better learning, teaching and social<br />

spaces; or creating the Enrichment Fund<br />

to ensure that every pupil can benefit fully<br />

from all that Watson’s has to offer, whether<br />

on the pitch, in the Music School, on stage,<br />

gaining a Duke of Edinburgh Award or being<br />

half way up a Munro on S3 Projects.<br />

And, it has always been important to me<br />

that our fundraising did not just support<br />

our own school and our own pupils. The<br />

generosity of individuals, organisations<br />

and trusts has enabled us to work in<br />

partnership with state schools in our<br />

neighbourhood to enrich the education<br />

offered to all. Thousands of young people<br />

locally have benefited through initiatives<br />

such as the Swire Chinese Language Centre,<br />

the Edinburgh Computer Science and<br />

Engineering in Schools Project, the South<br />

Edinburgh Schools CCF and our Community<br />

Sports Hub.<br />

During my time at Watson’s I have been<br />

humbled by the dedication and commitment<br />

shown by so many supporters of the No<br />

Limits Campaign. Thank you for the support,<br />

guidance and generosity that has achieved so<br />

much. Long may it continue.<br />

Legacy gifts make a<br />

huge difference and<br />

have allowed us to make<br />

significant improvements<br />

to our teaching<br />

and learning spaces.<br />

Impact<br />

Watson’s was built on a legacy. A legacy<br />

that has ensured that thousands of bright,<br />

young people have flourished – no matter<br />

what their background or financial means.<br />

In <strong>2023</strong>, legacies continued to have a huge<br />

impact on life at Colinton Road.<br />

Since we launched the No Limits Campaign<br />

in 2014, legacy gifts have exceeded<br />

£5 million and have accounted for over a<br />

third of all philanthropic income.<br />

Legacy gifts make a huge difference and<br />

have allowed us to make significant<br />

improvements to our teaching and learning<br />

spaces, including the John Martin Building,<br />

the Centre for Sport and cricket facilities;<br />

thanks to a legacy gift from Norman Hyde<br />

and an appeal, we were able to purchase a<br />

new organ for the Senior School Assembly<br />

Hall; and other legacies, one left to the Junior<br />

School and one to Music have allowed us to<br />

purchase steel pans – we’re looking forward<br />

to the new Junior School Steel Pan Band<br />

entertaining audiences in 2024.<br />

Legacy gifts have also provided millions of<br />

pounds of support towards our Foundation<br />

Places Programme. The George Watson’s<br />

Endowment Trust was established in 2019 to<br />

ensure that the School could, in perpetuity,<br />

rely on a regular source of funding for<br />

Foundation Places.<br />

Why leave a legacy<br />

gift to Watson’s?<br />

We understand, when planning your will,<br />

that taking care of loved ones should<br />

always come first, but having done so we<br />

hope that you will consider a legacy gift<br />

to George Watson’s College.<br />

As a registered charity, the gift you leave<br />

to Watson’s will, in most circumstances,<br />

be free from inheritance tax and capital<br />

gains tax, potentially reducing the overall<br />

tax liability on your estate.<br />

If you have already included a legacy<br />

gift to Watson’s in your Will, then please<br />

consider letting the School know, so that<br />

we can talk to you about your intentions.<br />

We would also like to invite you to be a<br />

member of our Caritas Society.<br />

If you are interested in finding out more<br />

about how you could leave a legacy<br />

gift to Watson’s in your Will, please<br />

complete the form on page 11, or<br />

Thanks to the support of our donors and<br />

fee-paying parents, the School was able<br />

to provide over £1.8 million in fee support<br />

for Foundation Place pupils and to other<br />

families who required short-term financial<br />

assistance.<br />

Enable – Closing<br />

the attainment gap<br />

Widening access is increasingly a key focus of<br />

our Foundation Places Programme. Children<br />

and young people in our most deprived<br />

communities perform significantly worse at<br />

all levels of the education system than those<br />

from our least deprived communities.<br />

A Foundation Place can be a life changing<br />

opportunity for a young person, living<br />

within an area where there is reduced<br />

access to resources and opportunities. Our<br />

aim is to increase the number of pupils<br />

attending Watson’s from the most deprived<br />

areas of Edinburgh and the surrounding<br />

local authorities.<br />

We also hope to encourage applications<br />

from groups that are currently<br />

underrepresented within our school<br />

community, including young carers and<br />

we are working in partnership with local<br />

charities to raise awareness.<br />

Ensure –<br />

The Combined<br />

Cadet Force<br />

Returns<br />

In <strong>2023</strong> we launched an appeal to raise<br />

£20,000 to allow us to put in place the<br />

logistics necessary to launch the South<br />

Edinburgh Schools’ Combined Cadet Force<br />

(SESCCF). The group is now up and running,<br />

and as membership grows and other<br />

schools come on board, the CCF should<br />

become self-supporting.<br />

This initiative, which has had support<br />

from the Ministry of Defence and the<br />

personal support of the three Service<br />

Chiefs in Scotland, will be open to pupils<br />

at Watson’s, as well as other local schools.<br />

The contingent will initially be founded with<br />

an Army section which will proudly wear<br />

the cap badge of the Scottish and Northern<br />

Irish Yeomanry (SNIY) with which the School<br />

already has many connections, and which<br />

enjoys the Freedom of the City of Edinburgh.<br />

We hope it will become a successful<br />

example of how schools can work with each<br />

other, and with other agencies, to expand<br />

the horizons and experiences of young<br />

people and encourage them to respect<br />

each other as equals, irrespective of their<br />

differences.<br />

Ensure –<br />

Patrons of<br />

the Arts<br />

Programme<br />

Launched at the March <strong>2023</strong> Usher Hall<br />

Concert, the Programme has raised over<br />

£14,000 in cash and pledges. Donations<br />

have already been put to good use,<br />

providing one-off grants to Music and Drama<br />

pupils, as well as helping towards the costs<br />

of a suite of steel pans for the Junior School.<br />

As well as donating, our Patrons are also<br />

generous with their time, providing small<br />

and supportive audiences for performance<br />

exams with the respective departments.<br />

What motivates someone to give is unique<br />

to each individual. We know that not<br />

everyone in our school community will<br />

support bursary places so we have worked<br />

to diversify the opportunities to support<br />

different elements of life at Watson’s.<br />

As well as donating, our<br />

Patrons are also generous<br />

with their time, providing<br />

small and supportive<br />

audiences for performance<br />

exams with the respective<br />

departments.<br />

Impact – The Enrichment Fund<br />

The Enrichment Fund, now making<br />

awards for the second year running,<br />

has allowed the School to open up<br />

individual, life changing opportunities<br />

to pupils who quite simply would<br />

not have been able to have the same<br />

transformative experience afforded to<br />

other Watson’s pupils.<br />

Thanks to the generosity of donors who<br />

chose to make their <strong>2023</strong> gift to the<br />

Enrichment Fund, a total of £7,348 was<br />

awarded to 23 pupils:<br />

Every donation to the Enrichment Fund<br />

in <strong>2023</strong> truly made a difference –<br />

Engage – working in partnership with others<br />

School Partnerships<br />

We continue to build on our mutually<br />

beneficial partnerships with state schools.<br />

Our Swire Chinese Language Centre<br />

continued to account for more than a<br />

quarter of Scotland’s National 5 Mandarin<br />

entries in <strong>2023</strong>; 18 pupils learning Mandarin<br />

at Tynecastle and Castlebrae high schools<br />

had an incredible, funded trip to Taiwan;<br />

and four partner high schools have now<br />

embedded Mandarin to the point that they<br />

have employed their own teachers.<br />

We are delighted that £255,000 has been<br />

raised towards our Edinburgh Computer<br />

Science and Engineering in Schools (ECSES)<br />

project, which seeks to increase access to<br />

computer science for young people. The<br />

funding has enabled us to proceed with<br />

recruitment of a teacher of computing and<br />

given time to a primary teacher specialising<br />

in coding. Both teachers work across<br />

Watson’s and our partner schools to develop<br />

and enrich provision.<br />

Community Sport Hub<br />

Along with our hockey and cricket<br />

partnerships with various state school<br />

clusters – a collaboration between schools,<br />

Watsonian Clubs and the charity Sporting<br />

Start – we have also developed our Rackets<br />

Cubed squash project with Oxgangs<br />

Primary School.<br />

In partnership with Hermitage Medical<br />

Practice we have also received funding to<br />

build on social subscribing options for our<br />

local community, through personalised<br />

links to adult classes designed to increase<br />

confidence, stability, strength and social<br />

interaction.<br />

Charity Partnerships<br />

Nearly £38,000 was raised for our charity<br />

partners and our school has been enriched<br />

by the insights and awareness that these<br />

partners bring.<br />

Social Action<br />

Pupils continued to work with our charity<br />

partners and within many other local<br />

organisations. This included: S5/S6 pupils<br />

volunteering at various care homes and<br />

local primary schools; our conservation<br />

group helping rangers, in the Pentlands,<br />

with path clearing, litter picking and<br />

removing invasive species; S1 pupils also<br />

litter picked during their Global Education<br />

Week; and, pupils who took part in Amnesty<br />

International’s Write for Rights campaign<br />

sent over 250 letters across the world.<br />

Watsonian Benevolent Fund<br />

The Benevolent Fund provides financial<br />

support to former pupils and staff, in the<br />

form of one-off or monthly allowances,<br />

as well as grants to purchase equipment.<br />

PATRONS OF<br />

THE ARTS<br />

AT WATSON’S<br />

Bringing you closer<br />

to Music and Drama<br />

Providing amazing opportunities<br />

for our pupils to perform is expensive<br />

and increasingly difficult to cover<br />

entirely through school fees and ticket<br />

sales alone.<br />

Our Patrons of the Arts play a vital<br />

role in supporting all elements of<br />

Music and Drama at Watson’s – from<br />

memorable large-scale performances<br />

in the Assembly Hall to intimate recitals<br />

and concerts in the Music Auditorium<br />

– our Patrons provide support<br />

that is crucial to ensure our pupil<br />

performers can reach their<br />

full potential.<br />

Donations made through our Patrons<br />

programme help us develop the<br />

musicians, actors and performers of<br />

the future to ensure the rich tradition<br />

of Watson’s alumni being in the<br />

spotlight continues.<br />

Play Your Part<br />

From as little as<br />

£10 per month<br />

become a Patron of<br />

the Arts at Watson’s<br />

and nurture<br />

future talent<br />
