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 currently supporting 68 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 over 100 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 a small number of them.
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 ambition to widen access to the school, 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.

Though I am not yet a mother, I can already say that I would want my daughter to attend LEH.
Knowing that I was supported through the Bursary Fund allowed me to focus unselfconsciously on my academic and extra-curricular interests without worrying about finances.
At LEH I was lucky to receive an education where I was encouraged to believe that anything was achievable.
I am confident that the sound foundations provided by my years at LEH are what enabled me to have such a rewarding and fulfilling working life.
I am and always will be proud of being an LEH student, and I am thankful towards those who made this chapter of my life possible.
I was in U4M when my mum came and sat on my bed on Saturday morning to tell me that my Dad had lost his job and I wouldn’t be going back to LEH after the holidays.
The bursary scheme enabled me to receive an excellent education and be part of a welcoming and exciting community, which I would not otherwise be able to access.
The sky really was the limit and still is, the lessons you learn at LEH are for life.
I sincerely urge all those who are in the position to do so, to donate and give more girls like me an opportunity that I have been so privileged to receive
I can hardly believe it was 72 years ago when I first entered the junior school at Burlington House in 1948.
