Calling All Former LEH Bursary Fund Students

We are appealing for any former pupil who has benefitted from the LEH Bursary Fund to please get in touch, as we launch an urgent fundraising drive to help others at this crucial time.

Support Us
As a result of the sweeping economic downturn caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic, our Bursary Fund has never been more important or more necessary.  We know that many families, both with children already at the school and those planning to send them here, will have been affected and we want to do everything we can to make our vision of “needs blind” admission to LEH a reality.

Our parents have been very generous in donating to a Harship Fund to help families with daughters currently at the school. Our concern now is for the future of those talented students who would benefit from an LEH education, but whose financial circumstances prevent their dreams from becoming a reality.

That’s why we are dedicating this year’s Annual Fund to exclusively support the Bursary Fund, so that we can help as many bright young girls as possible, from a diverse range of backgrounds, get the education they deserve and fulfil their true potential.

We will be reaching out to the whole LEH community, and beyond, to ask them to support the Bursary Fund.  We know that the single most compelling way to encourage people to donate is to simply share the stories of students who have previously benefitted.  Our research reveals that these powerful testimonials – about where our bursary students have gone on to study and work, and about the difference LEH has made to their lives – really motivate others to give.

So, please help us to help others like you.  If you would be kind enough to share your story, we can use it without your name, if you’d prefer. Please email: fundraising@lehs.org.uk.  Thank you so much.
