Help a girl fulfil her true potential

Throughout our history we have provided academic excellence for families with very restricted financial means by giving bursaries to talented young women. Individual and collective generosity ensures that talented girls can gain a first class education.  St Catherine’s is committed to funding Bursary students. We know that Bursary places:

- Change individual lives
- Help a girl fulfil her potential
- Enrich the whole School environment and its diversity
- Contribute to social mobility

"I was given a Bursary place and received an excellent education, where my teachers had the time to invest in me. There is no doubt that this has made a huge
difference to my life."  
Marta, Class of 2002

"St Catherine's gave me everything I have now.  It taught me how to learn and how to think.  My potential was drawn out and I was encouraged to believe
in myself."  Andrea, Year of 2012, now a Junior Doctor at James Cook Hospital, Liverpool

How you can support

If you would like to give a girl the chance to flourish at St Catherine's, you can give monthly or as a single commitment.  Some alumnae and parents choose to give annually to the Bursary programme.  The collective generosity of the School community allows us to transform a girl's educational opportunities and give them the chance to walk under the arches, compete on the lax pitches, be part of St Catherine's Day celebrations and be inspired by engaging and committed teachers.  Your gifts to the Bursary programme will help a girl fulfil her potential.   Please contact to discuss your support.

Join an event and meet girls whose lives have been shaped by St Catherine's

We are holding a series of small evening gatherings to give parents and alumnae the chance to hear more about giving to the Bursary programme. At each event an alumna who has benefited from a Bursary place will share their story. If you would like to join us please do call Pippa Carte on 01483 899754 or email
