Our Sponsors

The work of The Dolphin School is made possible through the outstanding support and expertise provide by our sponsors, the Society of Merchant Venturers and the University of Bristol and is brought to life by a team of excellent teachers and leaders. The sponsors are the key to success of The Dolphin School and are what makes our school unique, both locally and nationally. They are an essential part of our school vision, able to give our pupils exceptional chances, experiences and opportunities unavailable elsewhere.

THE SOCIETY OF MERCHANT VENTURERS

Merchant Venturers Logo White on GoldThe Society of Merchant Venturers (SMV) is a philanthropic organisation whose increasingly diverse membership works with and supports people and communities from the wider Bristol
area through education, care for older people, charitable giving and social enterprise. In education, SMV’s simple but highly ambitious vision is to transform the life-chances of students from the richly diverse set of schools within Venturers Trust, both during their educational journey and beyond.

The Society’s expertise in education spans more than four centuries and today, the commitment is practical as well as financial, with many of its members taking active roles in the governance of Venturers Trust and the wide range of schools within the Trust.

SMV firmly believes there is nothing more important to the health of our communities than outstanding education and training in life skills for young people.

To learn more about the Society’s most recent activities, please read their Annual Review.
