Fundraising and Gift Giving

Every donation and gift we receive, no matter how big or small, helps our school to provide girls with an exceptional start in life. Whether it’s supporting our bursary programme, to give bright girls an education that can change their lives, or equipment to give girls new opportunities in sport or technology, we value each and every donation.

The Donor Tree

To say thank you to our kind donors, our stunning Donor Tree takes pride of place in the Squire Performing Arts Centre, and is a beautiful way to show our appreciation of the continued support of our donors. Purchasing a leaf is a popular way for our supporters to make a donation.



If you would like to buy a leaf on the tree there are four different leaves to choose from depending on your donation. Simply choose a leaf and we will engrave it with your name, or any name, message or dedication you choose.

Every pound makes a difference. If you are able to make a donation, please complete the online form here.  Don’t forget to tick the Gift Aid box to maximise your donation, as this adds an extra 25% to your donation with no extra cost to you.

The Bursary Fund

Every year, many of the area’s brightest girls are unable to access the education they desire due to financial constraints. The Bursary Fund enables us to provide these girls with our incredible education by covering their school fees. With your help, we can help more girls benefit from an NGHS education, become leaders, and change the world for the better. If you are able to support us through fundraising activities or a financial contribution, please do get in touch, every pound you donate will make a difference.

The Opportunities Fund

The Opportunities Fund supports our Bursary Fund by providing extra help with those incidental expenses. It might be purchasing a pair of walking boots so that one of the girls can participate in a Duke of Edinburgh expedition, or a camera to participate in our photography club. We know that these opportunities have a positive impact on each girl’s development, building her confidence, resilience, teamwork, creativity, the list is endless. All incredibly important attributes for the leaders of the future. Every donation helps these girls so if you’re able to contribute we will greatly appreciate it.

The School Projects Fund

This important fund enables us support girls.  For example, if we need a new piece of equipment for a Duke of Edinburgh exhibition, or musical instrument for a particular musical production, the School Projects Fund enables us to purchase these items.  We are grateful to have this fund which is built by our donors through regular fundraising activities. Every contribution, large or small, adds up to help us provide the very best opportunities for our girls.

Thank you for your support!
