Development at NLCS

A registered charity, no. 1115843

Unlike many schools that benefit from an endowment, North London Collegiate School is dependent on philanthropic support, to help us to deliver a dynamic and inspirational educational environment. In recent years we have been incredibly fortunate to receive the generous support of parents, past and present, Old North Londoners and friends of the School. Now, as we plan for our most ambitious campaign yet, we need your support more than ever.

We are committed to raising funds for:

We also welcome unrestricted gifts as they can be directed towards the area of greatest need.

Thank you for your support of North London Collegiate School. Through the generosity of supporters like you, the School can meet the challenges of nurturing deserving students and creating an environment fit for the learners and leaders of tomorrow.

Our daughter has been at NLCS since Reception and is about to enter the Senior School. The School provides a happy learning environment which nurtures talent and relaxed self-confidence. It affords unrivalled opportunities for our daughter to develop and pursue her own interests. Donating to the School is a way of expressing our thanks to it and of seeking to contribute to state-of-the-art facilities and the provision of a comparable learning experience for other girls at the School and in years to come.
