For over 160 years College has pioneered pathways for girls to take their place in the world.
Over the coming decade our goal is for College and the girls to succeed as never before; we are ambitious for them collectively and individually. But we cannot do it alone.
We are very grateful to those Guild members who so generously support College, enabling us to maintain our place as a world leading school.
Unlike many other schools, College does not have an endowment fund to draw from to invest in our estate, our resources or our bursaries programme. We rely wholly on the generosity and support of like-minded people; those who share our commitment to academic excellence and wish to see College flourish.
In education, where student-to-teacher ratios are a competitive advantage, there are significant costs associated with having the best people working at College. People are our greatest asset – and our greatest expense. Salaries and benefits for teachers and staff make up approximately 75% of our annual budget. Simply put, quality is expensive.
Beyond these costs our 23-acre site, much of it heritage listed, requires continuous maintenance and, as we look to the future, necessary investment.
To meet the needs of College and realise the Principal’s vision, we have a long term fundraising plan, CLC Flourish.
CLC FLOURISH CAPITAL PROJECTS supporting the Estate master plan
CLC FLOURISH BEALE AWARDS, supporting the College bursary fund
CLC FLOURISH ANNUAL FUND, supporting curriculum enrichment programmes
There are many ways that you can support College and we are very grateful for the continued interest in our future. Every gift makes a difference, no matter how small. Find out why.
In addition to financial contributions, we invite support through a gift of your time or expertise.

Every gift makes a difference, no matter how small. Over time, every gift adds to our ability to fund much needed projects that we would otherwise not be able to afford.
50 gifts of £25 per month x five years = £75,000
50 gifts of £50 per month x five years = £150,000
50 gifts of £150 per month x five years = £450,000
You can choose to give on a regular basis or as a one off
