We are indebted to our many wonderful supporters, past and present. Whether in the form of generous donations, legacy bequests, offers of careers advice, attendance at events or shared memories of your time at Withington, we very much appreciate your support.
The Bursary Fund
Thank you to the many alumnae, former and current parents and other friends of the school who have generously donated to the Bursary Fund over the years. Your donations have provided vital funding for our means-tested bursary scheme, enabling us to transform the lives of girls who would not otherwise be able to come to Withington due to financial restraints.
One in six of our pupils currently receives financial support. Our next goal is to make that one in five pupils. Ultimately, we aim to ensure that no bright girl is denied a place at Withington due to financial circumstances. Please consider a donation to the Bursary Fund, knowing that the gift of a Withington education will remain open to all, no matter their family’s financial position.
The Ad Lucem Fund
We also extend our thanks to those who have supported our Ad Lucem Fund (formerly known as our Enhancing Opportunities Annual Fund). This raises money for projects which enhance and enrich the girls’ learning, but would normally fall outside of the annual school budget. These projects are proposed by pupils and staff at Withington, and chosen based on where the greatest need lies. Whether your gift to the Ad Lucem Fund is large or small, all your kind donations have an immediate impact in providing the best possible educational experience for our pupils.

We cannot continue to offer all the opportunities currently supported by the above initiatives without your help. On behalf of the girls and everyone here at Withington Girls’ School, thank you for your support.
If you want to find out more about how the school is using the charitable gifts received last year, please take a look at our Giving Report.
