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 provision 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
Speak Up, Speak Out
There are few things in life more important than the ability to communicate effectively – our Speak Up, Speak Out programme for speech and debate, breeds confidence, presence and critical thinking. You can sponsor this programme through our Speakers’ Fund which allows us to put on a whole range of events for pupils and the local community each year.
Project Zero is a pupil run programme to improve South Hampstead’s environmental profile and in 2020 we were awarded the Independent Schools of the Year Green Award for Environmental Achievement thanks to their efforts. If you would like to help our pupils continue to make South Hampstead a more carbon neutral school then please do support our Project Zero fund.
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.
