Netley Abbey and Butlocks Heath Educational Trust

The Trust was formally established by the Charity Commission on 7th July 2010 (Registered Charity 1139253) using funds acquired from the sale of the old Butlock’s Heath Infant School, some of the land surrounding the old Netley Infant School together with income from the former School buildings, currently Netley Abbey Library.

What is the trust for?

The purpose of the Trust is to support the education and development of children and young people up to the age of twenty-five years old who are resident in the parish of Hound. Regular grants are made available to Netley Abbey Junior and Infant Schools as well as other community based groups e.g. Scouts, Guides etc. and some individuals.

The Trustees have decided to introduce the availability of two new annual awards in the form of £1000 grants to worthy applicants. One will be for academic pursuit and excellence, and the other to assist in the quest for sporting excellence.
