The Rick Keeling Memorial Trust

The Rick Keeling Memorial Trust was established to enable students to fulfil an ambition in living a life of adventure, challenge and enlightenment. 

In previous years students have received funding towards equipment for enhancing their work in art, music and drama; for attendance on courses run by organisations from which students could benefit; for individual project work; and in order to take part in various expeditions all around the World.  

The Rick Keeling Trust was established in 1989 following the untimely death of Rick Keeling, the then Head of Science at Thurston Upper School. 

Rick Keeling would have been very proud of the achievements of all the many students who have to date received financial backing and support from the Trust.

If you would like to apply for financial backing please complete the Application Form and return it to Dr Jean Wheeler,
