Development at STAHS

We are truly excited about our growing Development programme at STAHS – fundraising to support the School and its pupils, for those studying with us now and future generations.

Increasing our Bursary Fund is a priority and is at the heart of our fundraising programme.

Our aim is to provide as many full bursary awards as possible, ensuring that ambitious, talented and motivated individuals, for whom an independent education would otherwise be impossible, can benefit from the wonderful opportunities that a STAHS education can provide.

We want these girls to experience all that STAHS has to offer: the challenge and reward of learning in a fast-paced, academically ambitious school, the warmth and welcome offered by the friendly and inclusive STAHS community, access to an amazing array of co-curricular and super-curricular opportunities and the lifelong support offered through our impressive alumni network. We want them to benefit from the full STAHS experience, educating them to become happy and confident adults and preparing them to lead lives of consequence.

Currently STAHS provides approximately 10% of pupils with some form of bursary support. Our long-term ambition is to increase this substantially, to enable us eventually to recruit on a needs-blind basis – offering a place to all outstanding pupils, regardless of background or finances.
