“ Your gift, no matter how big or small, can transform a life through education. ”Cheryl Giovannoni, Chief Executive GDST
Giving the gift of opportunity
Every gift makes a difference
“ A GDST education is a wonderful gift that should not be dependent on the ability of parents to fund it. A bursary contribution helps more girls who would not otherwise be able to access a GDST education to do so. It’s an investment in girls’ education. It’s a contribution to a fairer society. And, as they say, every little helps.”Kate Precious, Royal High School Bath parent
How would my gift be used?
Our first priority is providing bursaries for gifted students regardless of their family’s financial position, but your wishes as a donor are of primary importance to the school. We would be happy to talk to you about areas of particular interest that you may like to support.
Why are bursaries important?
The Girls’ Day School Trust is committed to improving social mobility and to helping every girl, whatever her background, fulfil her potential and her dreams. As a GDST school, Royal High School Bath represents the very best in teaching and pastoral care. We foster academic excellence but also build character, helping girls to be confident, resilient and fearless. Our goal is to make a Royal High School Bath education available to the best and brightest girls, whatever their background.
Your gift will help us to continue to offer financial support to those in need, enabling them to enjoy the excellent educational opportunities and facilities provided by the school.
