Inspiring change for a brighter future

The Alex Kelly Foundation

The Alex Kelly Foundation, set up in memory of 15 year old Alex Kelly, who sadly died at HMYOI Cookham Wood in 2012, have made a donation to The Rowans.  We are very grateful for this donation, which has enabled us to set up a hardship fund to support pupils.   So far, we have been able to support with costs towards school uniform and transport to and from school.

The Alex Kelly Trophy is awarded each academic year to the pupil who makes the most progress in food technology, as this was Alex’s passion. 

In July 2018, this trophy was awarded to Ryan in Year 11 for his excellent cooking throughout the year.
