The Head Master, Andrew Hobbs, was delighted to attend the launch of Douai’s Foundation on 12th September at the Royal Overseas Club in London.

Since the closure of Douai School in 1999, its former pupils have faced the challenge of identifying a suitable lasting legacy for the School, which will preserve its name and Benedictine values. The Foundation has been created to promote Benedictine education globally, with special emphasis on those in greatest need. The Trustees have already identified a suitable project at Inkamana in South Africa to raise funds for. 

As Downside launches its new School Trust this week, it is good to see that the commitment to Benedictine Education is undiminished both here and overseas.
