A Parent's Guide to Giving and Getting Involved

how to get involved

LEH has always been fortunate in enjoying an engaged and generous parent body, and every school needs an active volunteer network and strong financial support. How can you get involved? 

Engaged Parenting

There are many ways to stay connected to LEH as a parent. Getting involved in the small and large events helps both pupils, and our school, succeed. We encourage you to talk about homework and friends, attend our parenting sessions, read the Friday Post each week and visit the Parent Portal on a regular basis.

Active Participation

Active participation takes on many different forms: helping with special events such as the Christmas Fair or other social gatherings, attending sports matches, concerts and plays and volunteering careers support. Every LEH parent is encouraged to become an active member of the LEH family.

Financial Support

Unlike many other schools, LEH does not benefit from any endowment - everything we do depends on income from tuition fees and the generous contributions of people like you. We hope you will consider donating to our Bursary Fund if you are in a position to do so. We aim to fund several pupils in every year group whose parents would not be able to afford LEH school fees, but whose daughters nevertheless would benefit from an LEH education, and contribute to our community. We currently have 68 pupils in the school on bursaries and our aim is to increase this further.

The Friends of LEH 

The Friends of LEH is the association of parents of pupils at the school. It is a registered charity which exists primarily to promote a sense of community within the school by running social events throughout the year. It also aims to enhance the educational experience for students, via fundraising for non-essential but valuable equipment and experiences.  You automatically become a member when you join the school.

Career Mentoring Programme

LEH has a well-developed programme of career mentoring opportunities offered by parents and alumnae. If you would like to offer your experience and skills to help current and former LEH students, please find out more here.

Catch the spirit!

There are many opportunities to applaud and cheer on our students. From sports matches and dance performances, concerts and drama productions, the list of activities throughout the year is impressive. You are encouraged to attend any, or all, of these wonderful events. Your enthusiastic support matters, as well as your presence and model of good sportsmanship. Don’t miss a chance to be a fan!
