Stamford Card

The Stamford Card is available to everyone; our school community, the local community and beyond. Supported by ShopStamford, this initiative is aimed at supporting local businesses in and around the town, as well as raising funds for our bursary programme.

Cardholders pay £10 per month and these funds are used solely to provide bursary assistance to local children to attend the Schools (i.e. means tested fee assistance, where the Stamford Endowed Schools will pay 80% or more of the fees). These children, from within the Stamford community, would otherwise be unable to benefit from an education with the Schools.

The monthly fee of £10 per person entitles the cardholder to an array of benefits and special offers with over 140 shops, hotels, restaurants, services and attractions in and around the Stamford area. Offers are updated regularly so please keep an eye on the listings to see how you can make the most of your  Stamford Card at any given time.
