The Girls’ Day School Trust was founded in 1872 to provide education to all girls, regardless of background or means. We are committed to providing ‘learning without limits’ and to this end, South Hampstead High School has pledged to double our current bursary support by our 150th anniversary in 2026 as part of the GDST wide bursary campaign.
You can help support bursaries by contribution to:
The South Hampstead Bursary Fund – which supports means tested bursaries for new pupils at South Hampstead High School
The GDST Hardship Fund – for pupils across the GDST network whose parents are currently experiencing financial difficulties
Our speaker and debating programme is a key element in building confidence and presence amongst our pupils, enabling them to find their voice. Help our girls to continue to speak out and be heard.
Environmental sustainability has moved centre stage and is a priority for our pupils and for the school. Project Zero is our programme to improve South Hampstead’s environmental profile – Carbon offsetting, plastic recycling, composting, the replacement of paper towels, and LED lighting all require significant investment beyond our everyday budget. We would welcome your support for this initiative.
We want to establish sustainable and mutually enriching partnerships which benefit our staff, pupils and those beyond our gates. Sharing knowledge, facilities and experience with those around us is core to our future plans. Help us to support our partnerships with local schools and outreach to organisations like The Spear programme and Unitas.
The Waterlow Hall is the largest project ever funded entirely by our community. We opened the doors to this wonderful new facility at the end of January 2020 and to date, we have raised over £3million to fund this development.
