Cancelled events

  • Bob Stanier Society Lunch, March 2020

  • Bursary fundraising campaign, April 2020

Our Donor Report, which shows how much your support contributes to MCS, has recently been posted out. We have postponed the bursary fundraising campaign planned for April 2020, although we recognise that the need for bursaries and hardship funds may well increase in future.

We work in partnership with many community organisations in Oxford, also summarised in the Donor Report. Many of our donors help to support these partnership activities. We will be working out what MCS can do to help in the months ahead, in addition to welcoming the pupils who are children of key workers.

The school is now closed except for the children of keyworkers. We will be accessing post, probably on a weekly basis, but we will update this as soon as things are clearer.
