A picturesque village in East Suffolk
The Corrance School Trust is registered with the Charity Commision, Charity No 1014386 and it was constituted by a Declaration of Trust on 6 January 1992. The Trust's funds came from the sale of Parham School which closed in 1986. This Church of England School was set up in 1872 by Frederick Corrance, Esq. of Parham Hall. In recognition of this the Diocese gave a proportion of the proceeds of the sale of the school for the educational and religious benefit of young persons in the villages of Parham and Hacheston.
The money is kept as a permanent endowment and only the interest is used to carry out the objects of the Trust.
Grant applications cover books for colleges and universities, ballet and dancing lessons, school trips at home and abroad and music tours to name a few expenses eligible.
