Welcoming talented and academically gifted girls from all backgrounds to Streatham & Clapham High School is integral to our vision and ethos.
We know that education has the power to transform lives and that is why we are passionate about offering financial assistance, in the form of bursaries, to girls whose families lack the means to pay tuition fees. We know that our bursaries offer accessibility, ensure that our classrooms reflect the diversity of the wonderful city in which we live, and are critical to the future success of all our pupils, and the wider world.
A world-changing impact
By enriching our classrooms with pupils from a range of backgrounds, with diverse perspectives, we foster new approaches to problem solving and encourage all our girls to question, challenge and debate. Every bursary we offer creates an opportunity not just for the individual pupil, but for their family, their community, and the networks that they will create in the future. A single bursary place can change the world!
Make a change
Every day we coax the very best from our girls, empowering them to identify, broaden and develop their talents. Providing bursaries is an essential aspect of our educational mission and we need your support to ensure more girls can access the opportunities we provide. You can change the world today by supporting our Bursary Fund.
Education should be about giving opportunities to those who will seize them and flourish
