Going for Gold with Giving Day 2024

Cue Vangelis soundtrack, cue slow-mo running, cue recreation of 'Chariots of Fire', as this week sees LEH channelling the spirit of the upcoming Olympics to raise money for our Bursary Fund.

In homage to the Olympic Flame, which symbolises peace and unity and heralds the start of the world’s biggest sporting event, our talented Design Technology team has created our very own LEH torch.

Pupils across the Senior and Junior Schools are holding it aloft as they take part in a series of fun Olympic style fundraising contests this week, culminating in an all-school challenge tomorrow.

To mark the 70th anniversary of the world-record set by great British sporting legend, Sir Roger Bannister, as he smashed the sub-four-minute mile, our pupils will be paying tribute by teaming up to emulate the time and distance on foot. In addition, our Senior rowers will be flexing their muscles on water and Ergo machines to virtually transport the LEH torch to Paris and back, with the Juniors doing the same in their sports and swimming lessons too.

In a bold test of endurance and enthusiasm, the whole School is being challenged to keep the torch moving, passing from hand to hand, for the entire day tomorrow (Thursday 13 June).  To find out if we can make it, please keep watching us on Instagram and Facebook.

We’re appealing to you, our wonderful alumnae, to show your support for pupils, by donating HERE.

All proceeds will go to our much-cherished Bursary Fund, which can truly transform lives and shape futures, by widening access to the school to help make it a more diverse, stimulating, and inclusive environment for the benefit of all our students.

Some of our generous donors have already kindly pledged to match funds, so if you click the link HERE now – your support will help unlock their donations and make your contribution go even further. Thank you.
