Supporting North London
From its inception, NLCS has offered an ambitious education to girls from a wide economic background. The School has no historic endowment, so its success and accessibility depend on the generosity of supporters.
The School raises funds to:
Provide bursaries for talented girls who would not otherwise be able to attend, enabling the School to maintain its social mix and academic strength, and to welcome into our community highly able girls whose families cannot afford to pay all or part of the fees. We currently offer some level of help with fees to nearly 10% of Senior School pupils – but we need to continually raise funds to cover their places, and our ambition is to grow our Bursary Fund over the coming years.
Maintain and enhance the School’s facilities and grounds. From the School’s founding, our buildings and spaces have existed because of the generosity of alumnae and supporters. In recent years, philanthropic gifts to the School have allowed us to develop or build areas including the School’s Library, Sports Centre and Performing Arts Centre. Our most recent campaign raised over £1m across 2013-14. These funds were directed towards several improvements and extensions, including new classrooms, science laboratories and refurbished dining facilities.
The School welcomes gifts of all kinds, whether one-off, multi-year, bequests, gifts in shares, or donations via the British School & Universities Foundation (for US taxpayers). We would be delighted to talk to prospective supporters about how the School can direct and credit a gift.
We endeavour to acknowledge each gift we receive and we always respect the wishes of the donor regarding which projects they wish to support or whether or not they wish to remain anonymous. The Donors Board by the School Hall is our mark of thanks to all those who have contributed to the Bursary Fund, and helped us to fulfil Frances Mary Buss' original vision.
Each year, we host a small number of special events to say thank you to our supporters, and we enjoy staying in regular contact through the year.
