My Ashford School

Tom Watts Travel Award

The Tom Watts Travel Award was introduced in 2016 in honour of the School’s former bursar and benefactor Mr Tom Watts.

The award provides financial assistance, up to £1,000, to leavers and recent past pupils who are considering undertaking challenging journeys or expeditions during their gap year, university vacation or similar period, and is awarded by the ASA Committee. Where two or more applicants’ cases for support are meritorious, the award may be divided between them in such proportions as decided by the ASA Committee.

Mr Watts was an outstanding servant of Ashford School and a man who dedicated his life to the service of others and deeply committed to the development of character in Ashford School students. He exemplified a strongly held belief that those who receive the benefit of an excellent education should work to help others less fortunate than themselves.
