About us 

Pestalozzi’s mission is to produce globally conscious young leaders by supporting their further education in the multi-cultural, multi-faith environment of the Pestalozzi International Community. Central to everything we do are our core values of Respect, Integrity, Diversity, Commitment and Fun.

We are a UK-based charity with more than 50 years’ experience of offering life-changing opportunities to young people from disadvantaged communities around the world.

Pestalozzi awards scholarships to exceptional 16-19 year olds who are academically gifted but have limited educational prospects in their home countries. These young people have all demonstrated their enthusiasm for helping to make a difference in their communities.

Pestalozzi students  are accommodated for two years in our multi-cultural, multi-faith community here in East Sussex, UK, where they welcome difference and embrace diversity. They study at local colleges and undertake a broad range of extra-curricular activities, gaining an holistic education focused on the Pestalozzi principles of Head, Heart and Hands.

Pestalozzi scholarships give these young people an opportunity they would not otherwise receive – the chance to develop their potential, pursue their ambitions and go on to make a real and lasting difference in the world.

Location

We are based in Sedlescombe, approximately 3.5 miles away from Battle train station. You may find it easier to reach us by car as the buses that stop in Sedlescombe do not run very frequently (so please check the timetable!). Click here for a map.
