The NHSG Scholars’ Fund enables our Year 13 Leavers to give the gift of education to another girl.

NHSG and its founding Schools have been educating girls since 1872 and for almost 150 years the generosity of others has made our School and its forerunners open to bright, dedicated and talented girls, regardless of their financial circumstance.

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.

Working with the SHINE TRUST  we offer educational support to expand the horizons and increase the aspirations of primary school children from some of the North East’s most disadvantaged areas. We work with these children to help raise their ambitions by encouraging them to become more confident and positive about the value of education.

NHSG Sixth Formers volunteer with the programme and our Scholars’ Fund was created to enable our Sixth Form Girls to give the gift of an NHSG education to the children they worked with.

Every child deserves the best start in life – regardless of background or where they live. We already have two pupils from the SHINE programme enrolled as members of our School and with your generosity we will be able to give a life-transforming education to another girl.

Donors to the fund will be acknowledged with a seahorse pendant bearing their name.


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.
