We do not yet know the full impact that lockdown or the transition from school to home learning will have on the wellbeing of young people. At St Margaret’s, we have been working to ensure that pupils continue to have access to supportive, high quality teaching and pastoral care while the school building is closed. Learning is bolstered with familiar school practices and we are proactive in responding to changing needs and circumstances.

At this time we expect to help a significant number of families to meet the costs of their daughter’s education though our hardship fund and to alleviate some of the financial stress they may be facing. Your donation will be included in our hardship fund, and only those who apply, submit supporting information and are made an award will receive support. In the unlikely event that funds remain in this hardship fund at the end of this immediate crisis, these would be transferred to the St Margaret Fund to support girls who have been awarded fully funded bursaries.

We have educated girls since 1846 and we do not want any of our pupils to miss out on the opportunities we offer as a result of unexpected financial difficulties beyond their control.
