We are very grateful to everyone who has made a donation to support the school. Together, we raised over £300,000 last year.
The majority of donations are to the LEH Bursary Fund, which goes from strength to strength. This academic year we are supporting 56 bursary students, with 41 on 100% bursaries, offering more girls than ever the life changing opportunity of an LEH education.
There are a variety of ways to donate, so it’s easy for everyone to give what they can. Scroll down to explore the options.
The Development Office Team will always be pleased to answer any fundraising questions you may have or to receive offers of help.
There are several ways in which you can make a gift to LEH, but making a donation online is by far the easiest. To donate securely online, please complete the details in the form, which will then take you through to our payment gateway. Choose from either a regular gift or a one-off donation. If you would like to support the School in any other way, do get in touch with the Development Office.
If you would like to make your donation via bank transfer, please use the Lady Eleanor School bank account details below and add your name as a reference.

We are able to reclaim the 25p of Gift Aid on every £1 you give to LEH. This makes a sizeable difference to the amount of money we can raise every year.
If you are a UK taxpayer, Lady Eleanor Holles (the charity) can claim the tax you have already paid, so your gift is increased at no extra cost to you. If you would like to make your gift tax-effective in this way, please don't forget to complete the Gift Aid declaration when making a gift.
For a donation eligible for Gift Aid, you must pay UK Income or Capital Gains Tax at least equal to the amount that LEH will reclaim on your donations in the tax year. Higher rate tax-payers can reclaim the difference between the higher rate and the basic rate of tax on their annual tax return, whilst company donations may be offset against corporation tax, making charitable giving hugely tax-efficient.
Please notify the Development Office if you want to cancel your Gift Aid declaration, change your name or home address, or no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.
Every donation, large or small, can make a real difference.
To make a donation by cheque (made payable to ‘Lady Eleanor Holles School’) or to set up a Direct Debit, please complete and return the Donation Form below to the Development Office at LEH, Hanworth Road, Hampton TW12 3HF.
Pledges of support can enable you to spread your gift over time whilst allowing the School to plan for the future. If you would like to make a donation in a number of instalments structured over multiple years, please contact us at the Development Office.
LEH is in the fortunate position of being able to attract and develop many talented young women. The existence of a well-funded bursary scheme not only ensures that this education is made available to a broader group of girls, but also ensures that a safety net is in place in the event that parents of existing pupils encounter unforeseen difficulties which would otherwise result in a talented and promising pupil having to leave the school.
