Throughout his five years as Headmaster at King’s Worcester, Matthew Armstrong worked tirelessly for the benefit of the school and always put King’s as his top priority. His deep commitment to King’s was evident and his vision was that all pupils should be empowered and encouraged to be the best possible version of themselves.

Matthew was passionate about bursaries and he was a regular contributor to the King’s bursary programme. He understood how, by providing a bursary to a child and enabling him or her to come to King’s, that a pupil could then benefit from all the opportunities provided by the school.

Pupils in receipt of a bursary place at King’s throw themselves fully into the life of our school. On leaving us they head out into the world alongside their peers, becoming invaluable members of society: doctors, dentists, architects, lawyers, linguists, engineers, journalists, just to mention a very few professions in which some of our bursary pupils are now working.

Matthew’s widow, Kate, is keen to establish ‘The Matthew Armstrong Bursary’ with the aim of creating an enduring and permanent bursary place at King’s.  The enduring bursary will enable children long into the future to receive the life-changing chance of a King’s education.  If you would like to make a donation in Matthew’s memory please see below on ways to donate. Alternatively, if you would like to talk to someone about bursaries, please feel free to call Liz Elliott on 01905 721719 or email her on eelliott@ksw.org.uk.

Matthew Armstrong’s passion for bursaries and for the school he loved will live on in the future pupils who come to King’s via his enduring bursary.  Thank you, should you choose to support this bursary in his name.
