2021 Scholarship Students off to a Great Start

The Lords Feoffees have received the first volume of progress correspondence from university students awarded Scholarships in 2021 and are pleased to hear how the funding is helping these students meet the costs associated with studying their respective degrees.

One of the Scholarship’s recipients, Rio Crossley, began the Textiles in Practice course at Manchester Metropolitan University in September 2021 and has shared her progress with the Lords Feoffees.

Since moving to university in Manchester I have absolutely fallen in love with the city, and I’ve had the best time meeting new people, especially fellow creatives at my university. In regards to my course I am progressing very well, I have been keeping up with the work load and making good use of the creative facilities university has to offer me, specifically the print and photography workshops. Within my Textiles course I’ve particularly been enjoying experimenting with painting, drawing, collage and photography, so these are the mediums that I’ve been buying new supplies for
throughout the last term. Rio Crossley, January 2022.

Applications will open in April 2022 for those wishing to be considered for a Lords Feoffees Scholarship of up to £1,200 to begin this year.

Bayle Museum loans WWI artefacts to Our Lady & St Peters

Children at Our Lady and St Peter RC Primary Academy have recently been taking part in lessons on the subject of WWI.  The Bayle Museum provided a loan box consisting of several original artefacts and a selection of replica items to enhance the lessons.  The school were also given an information pack detailing the history of two local servicemen, Major J. B. Purvis and Pte Herbert Vere Weissenborn, whose service medals are now within the Bayle Museum Collection.

Class Teacher, Rebecca Hilman said, “The children were thoroughly absorbed in their lesson. You had clearly put a lot of care and thought into curating our request and the personal items were excellent.”

Scholarship Student, Katalina Leighfield, graduates with a 2:1

Congratulations to Lords Feoffees scholarship recipient, Katalina Leighfield, who has graduated from Canterbury Christ Church University with a 2:1 in psychology.


“In September of 2018 I had the great opportunity to attend Canterbury Christ Church University to study Psychology, 3 years later I have graduated with a 2:1. I never saw university in my future, never mind achieving the grade I did. I’m not going to lie, University is hard, but being awarded the scholarship by Lord Feoffees helped me in more ways than one. I was able to attend university knowing that I didn’t have to worry about how I was going to afford the resources I needed. I enjoyed my time at university because I was able to thrive in my studies and be comfortable without worrying about how I was going to afford life at university: Lord Feoffees offered me security in that.”  Katalina Leighfield, July 2021.

Applications are open until 30 July 2021 to be considered for a Lords Feoffees Scholarship of up to £1,200 per year.
