Case Studies - Sports Bursaries

Uzair Qureshi
Foundation Bursary (B1 2007-11)

We are keen to reach out and include as many gifted and talented pupils from a range of social backgrounds, who will contribute to the life of the school, and we support applications from the local community. 

Swindon boy Uzair Qureshi is an excellent sportsman and talented cricketer. Uzi received a Foundation Bursary. He said:

“I joined Marlborough College in the Remove year from a state school in Chippenham. This was a life changing experience for me which enabled me to become a mature and confident individual. As a result I succeeded in gaining a place at Cardiff University where I graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Business Management (Marketing). Not only did I learn and develop a number of life skills over my time at the College but it meant I was able to further my cricket and to earn a county contract from Gloucestershire.

“I enjoyed my time immensely and I thank those who have made this experience possible, and the Master who paid me the terrific honour of awarding me the role of senior prefect. I would not be where I am in my career without the opportunities that Marlborough gave me and
therefore I thank the College for their faith."
