Caspar Lee pays it forward

3. Old Oakhillian Caspar Lee biographyOakhill School’s ethos of ‘joy of learning’ is evident not only in Oakhill’s proven track record for a holistic and well-rounded education of students, but also by the school leavers as they continue with much enthusiasm in their chosen paths. One such example is the world-famous Old Oak Caspar Lee. At the young age of 23, Lee has certainly made a success of the dreams he once cultivated at Oakhill – he now has over 7.5million YouTube followers, recently won the Social Media Superstar Award at the 2018 Global Awards, and is the Chief Innovation Officer at the London-based marketing agency, Influencer.

Understanding the importance of a great education and the opportunities it offers worldwide, Lee is paying it forward. He received a scholarship to study at Oakhill for his high school years, and this year he launched the Caspar Lee Bursary to offer that same opportunity to a talented and deserving young student – Indiphile Witbooi. Lee launched the Caspar Lee Bursary in an announcement on his YouTube channel and to an audience of Oakhill pupils via live streaming “Oakhill supported my creativity, it helped me a lot with my education, and made me the person I am today.”
