Withington Calling 2019

From 20th August to 2nd September 2019, a team of committed and enthusiastic Withington pupils and recent leavers will be taking part in our Telephone Campaign, speaking to alumnae, parents and friends.

Meet our Calling Team

We run this campaign for a number of reasons:

It’s a great opportunity to keep in touch with you and to let you know about life at Withington today. We will share our latest news and forthcoming events that you might be interested in. We are also keen to hear about the careers our alumnae and others have chosen and to offer opportunities for you to support current pupils. This could be by offering careers advice or mentoring to inspire, support and motivate the girls.

Crucially the telephone campaign also invites you to support the school and raises vital philanthropic funds. We are transforming the lives of young women and aim to do more through extending our means-tested bursary programme. You have the opportunity to help ensure that financial constraints are not a barrier to a Withington education and to support projects that will enrich the education of all the girls in our care.

Will you contact me?

If we are planning to call you, you will receive a postcard to let you know. Our calling team of current 6th form pupils and recent leavers would be delighted to speak to you and hear about your experiences of Withington. This is also a great opportunity for them to develop their communication skills and confidence.

If you would prefer not to receive a call, please let us know by contacting us on development@wgs.org or 0161 249 3494.

Not receiving a call? We still need your help…

If you don’t hear from us, please consider making a contribution. Together the Withington community gave over £386,000 last year and helped us support 1:6 of our girls with a means-tested bursary. Collectively, even small contributions can change lives.

You can make your donation online today. Thank you!
