The emphasis we place on providing individual support and one-to-one guidance to our students is one of Clare’s greatest strengths. 

Our Tutorial system ensures that every student has a personal Tutor, separate from their academic work, who is on hand to guide them through any problems - personal, financial or academic - throughout their time here. From personal development to advice on hardship funds, our Tutors are there for our students however and whenever they are needed.

We aim to develop and enhance our welfare provision, so that all our students can get the best out of their time at Clare. We hope to do this by: 

  • Endowing our current Tutorships, to ensure they are provided in perpetuity
  • Establishing new Tutorships in the future, as and when funding allows

 The Nicholas Hammond Foundation

The Nicholas Hammond Foundation was established in 2002 in honour of Nicholas Hammond, a former Senior Tutor of Clare. The Hammond Foundation supports various areas of life at Clare, including the tutorial system, by providing funds for an additional tutor, as well as a variety of educational support initiatives for students.

The Foundation also funds the role of the Careers Tutor, who helps prepare students for the world of work. The Hammond Foundation has also made funds available to enable students to undertake unpaid internships in situations where financial constraints would otherwise prevent them from doing so.  



If you decide to support pastoral care for Clare students, you could choose to direct your gift to the Nicholas Hammond Foundation or towards the endowment of one of our existing Tutorships. 

Alternatively, you may wish to establish a new Tutorship, in the name of your choice. To find out more, please contact the Development Office.
