Bursaries at Sheffield Girls: The gift of opportunity

Sheffield Girls' is committed to educating girls from all backgrounds and this is possible thanks to donations from alumnae, former staff and friends to the Sheffield Girls' Bursary Fund. 

Our aim, as we approach our 150th anniversary in 2028, is to honour the pioneering equitable vision of our School's founders and grow our endowment by £1million. This figure represents the amount needed to secure in perpetuity a new fully-funded Bursary Award place each year.

Raising funds for bursaries, for both immediate need and building our endowment fund, is the focus of the fundraising that we undertake. Our thanks to all those in our community who support bursaries and thereby give the gift of opportunity and change young people’s lives for the better.

Ella's Story

Ella was Head Girl of the class of 2022. She joined Sheffield Girls' in Year 12 as a Bursary Award recipient and like Lene, she chose to be a Bursary Ambassador throughout her time in the Sixth Form. While she was at Sheffield Girls', Ella shared with us what her experience was of settling into a new school and her aspirations for the future.
