The Ad Lucem Fund
At Withington we are committed to providing the best educational opportunities for all our pupils. The Ad Lucem Fund (formerly known as the Annual Fund) supports projects across the school which enhance and enrich the girls’ learning but that normally fall outside the reach of the annual school budget.
How You Can Help
We would not be able to offer these fantastic educational experiences to our pupils if it wasn’t for the generosity of our community of parents, alumnae, staff and supporters. Thank you to those who already donate regularly to the Ad Lucem Fund. Any donation – no matter the amount – can play a vital role in supporting our pupils and ensuring their Withington education remains challenging, enriching and rewarding.
Whether your gift is large or small, all your kind donations will have an immediate impact in providing the best possible educational experience for all our pupils.
We are very grateful to all those who continue to support education at Withington through the Ad
Lucem Fund. Despite restrictions to activities this year, donations to the Ad Lucem Fund have continued
to support practical aspects of learning. This has included funding to host workshops to ameliorate the impact of Covid-19 on practical lessons for those studying GCSE Food Preparation and Nutrition, as well
as new specialist equipment for the Food & Nutrition Department.
Just before Easter we hosted a Year 8 STEM Day with an Aircraft Challenge, live Science Magic Show and a careers session. It has been wonderful to be able to offer our students these kinds of opportunities once again.
Previously, your donations have provided a new Outdoor Health & Wellbeing area, a new Drama Studio, and STEM Showcase Days.
Have you though about funding a Bursary
The Withington Girls’ School Bursary Fund is an integral function of the school and consolidates our vision and ethos to create a warm community, centred on equality and opportunity irrespective of race, religion, social background and financial constraints; to ensure that Withington retains its unique position as a true centre of excellence open to all.
By contributing to our Bursary Fund you are changing a girl’s life forever.
