Help support the The Old Burians’ Association with regular donations by Standing Order

If you enjoy keeping in touch and hearing about your old school, we hope that you will be happy to contribute towards the costs of running the Old Burians’ Association. We run on a small budget and our administration is done almost entirely by volunteers. However, there are unavoidable costs such as printing, postage, and running the website, all of which have increased considerably in recent years.

We ask that members pay an annual subscription in the form of a Standing Order of not less than £10; if you feel you can afford a bit more, that would be very much appreciated. You can find a Standing Order form here. If you attended the school but you’re not yet a member of the OBA, we’d love you to join us – you can find a registration form and Standing Order form on the Join Us” page.

Give to the Old Burians Charitable Trust to help current students develop their careers

The Trust exists to provide help in the form of part-funding for personal development projects (both educational and charitable) pursued by individual students. With the abolition of middle schools, students at King Edward’s join in year 7. The current school now has no sixth form, with the majority of year 11 students going on to Abbeygate Sixth Form College or West Suffolk College, both located in the same area as the school. The Old Burians’ Charitable Trust offers financial grants to all students of King Edward VI School either currently at the school or in further education, up to the age of 25.

You can read more about it on this page, along with some personal stories of students who have benefited from an award in the recent past, and also download a Standing Order or one-off Donation form.
