The NHSG Scholars’ Fund enables our Year 13 Leavers to give the gift of education to another girl.
We ask all our Year 13 Leavers to donate their deposits at the end of their school career here at NHSG to the Scholars’ Fund. The Scholars’ Fund will guarantee bursaries for bright, dedicated girls who come to us through the SHINE programme.
In the UK today, 60% of children from the poorest households do not achieve five GCSEs at school, leaving them without the basics they need to access further education or secure a good job. This is not just a personal tragedy for each and every one of these children, it also has profound consequences for society and the economy.
The SHINE programme gives these children a chance and our Scholars’ Fund offers girls who take part in our SHINE programme the opportunity of a potentially life transforming education here with us at NHSG, regardless of financial circumstance.
You can make a difference. If every girl in our current Year 13 donated her full deposit, we would raise £20,000.
Every £1 donated will be match funded by the GDST when we reach our target of £60,000.
Please come and have a look at our Scholars’ Fund Donor Chandelier which has a dedicated pendant for every girl who has donated her deposit so far.
