Information about the Trust and the purpose of it is detailed below:-

The Thomas Maconochie KHS Trust was established in 2003 by Mr Thomas Maconochie, a former pupil of the school.  The trust is a recognised Charity, Scottish Charity No: SCO34775. The purposes of the Trust are "to advance the education of children at school in Kelso and its environment in such a way as are over and above the statutory requirement of the relevant Education Authority."

In practice, this means that this Fund may choose to support educational activities carried out by Kelso High School pupils which are not directly funded by legal requirement by the Education Authority, namely Scottish Borders Council.  This may include grants to support:-

  • pupil participation in business and enterprise related activities
  • pupils taking part in school activities and excursions where, for any reason, lack of finance is a barrier to participation
  • the start up of new extra-curricular activities, eg. school shows, drama, etc
  • ongoing running costs for extra-curricular activities, eg. sport, music and drama
  • extra activities offered in school for classes, groups or year groups, eg. conferences, education for work initiatives, visits
  • individual pupil participation in courses and activities, eg. Gap Years
