In September 2021, Worksop College were delighted to welcome their first transformational bursary student, Max. Max joined on a fully-funded place for the entirety of his education, thanks to the unwavering support of the Freemasonry community.
Max also received a Cricket Exhibition, which saw him enrolled on the school’s cricket scholarship programme to nurture his talent and passion for the sport.
Max’s first year was largely funded through the MCF, with additional support from the Provincial Grand Lodge of Nottinghamshire, as well as the Old Worksopian Lodge, the member lodge closely connected to the college. We have committed to funding the entirety of Max’s education for the remainder of his time at the college.
Max’s Mother, Kerrie endorses the impact this opportunity has had on her son; “Max was attending his local comprehensive school when he was offered a part scholarship in cricket at Worksop College. That, along with the help from the MCF and Nottinghamshire Freemasonry, has seen him develop into a very different person. His love of learning has been restored and his grades and effort are consistently improving. The support from the school has been incredible, and the young man he is today is an example of that. He is becoming a strong, caring and independent young man whose morals, values and integrity reflect that of the school and home life partnership.
His involvement with cricket and the support he has received has helped him to become a strong young cricketer, as well as being a constant first team player of the school’s hockey team. He has embraced all the opportunities the college has to offer, from the Dorm Run to House Song!
Without this incredible opportunity, Max would have continued to struggle in the school he used to attend. We will be forever grateful for this opportunity and experience that the MCF have facilitated.”
