THE BURSARY FUND

Your opportunity to transform a young person’s life

The Bursary Fund is the cornerstone of LEH’s fundraising efforts. This year, thanks to the generosity of our community, we are able to support 67 bright pupils who would have otherwise been unable to take their places at the school. 

However, there are still many deserving students we are unable to help. This year, we had 111 applications for bursaries and many of these pupils were excellent candidates who would have undoubtedly enriched the LEH community. Sadly, we only had funding to offer bursary places to 15 of these students. 

Unlike many schools that benefit from an endowment, we rely on your support to help deliver a diverse and enriching educational environment. If you share our vision to make ‘needs blind’ admission to LEH a reality, please consider making a donation, or contact our Development Department for more information. By giving, you confirm your belief in the work of our school, the dedication of our teachers, and the impact an LEH education will have on a pupil’s future. Such gifts ensure that we have the resources to create a community of bright, widely representative young people whose ultimate impact on society is incalculable.
