Why give?

Access to an excellent education should never be a privilege limited by economic or social barriers. Help us break them.

For more than 140 years, King Edward VI High School for Girls has provided a world-renowned education built on two pillars: excellence and accessibility. Our school offers an education second-to-none to all bright girls in our region, regardless of their background. 

For most of its history, KEHS could do this with government support and it was truly a meritocracy; every bright girl could have a future here. 

But after decades of dwindling funding, in 1997 government support was withdrawn entirely. The Foundation stepped in with its own Assisted Places programme, and then in 2014 The KEHS Trust was created to meet an ever-increasing demand for bursary support. 

Thanks to the support of hundreds of alumni and friends, The KEHS Trust has raised over £4 million, creating new Assisted Places every year for girls who have earned their place here, and whose families need help. Your support has changed their lives, given them a firm trajectory, and offered their family the assurance of knowing their daughter’s place is secured. 

You can help us offer this opportunity to more girls and their families, breaking down the economic and social barriers that stand in their way.
