The Hutchins Foundation

The Hutchins Foundation Ltd was established in 1977 as the result of a vision by the School’s Resource Planning Committee, which determined that debt incurred by the School should be serviceable without government assistance. With a constant shift in the educational climate this vision was never more relevant than it is today. The Foundation is a company limited by guarantee and is administered by a Board of Directors.
