Latest News From Wimbledon, Putney, Wakefield, Calne

Wimbledon High School

This outstanding independent girls school (part of the GDST network) has embarked upon an ambitious but achievable campaign to raise £3 million towards significant redevelopment of its school buildings. The campaign kicked off with some excellent leadership gifts and, as we move into the new academic year, we aim to complete the Private Phase of the campaign early in the next term. We will then seek the support of the school’s broader community to complete the fundraising before the end of the year.

Putney High School

We have recently completed an intensive Feasibility Study on behalf of this equally outstanding school. As a result of our findings, the school will shortly begin a highly focussed campaign to raise £500,000 from a small number of major donors so that it can press on with the building of a new Science Block adjoining its much-praised Performing Arts Centre.

Wakefield Grammar School Foundation

We’re delighted to continue working with WGSF as they move into the active phase of their landmark £10 million campaign. With governors and alumni leadership already making generous personal commitments to the project, the campaign is off to a strong start that we are confident will see it reach the first phase target on track.

St Mary’s Calne

The School’s 150thanniversary in 2023 is the driving force behind the planning for an ambitious bursary campaign to raise as much as £5 million from legacies and major gifts. We are really pleased to have been reappointed to advise St Mary’s on developing its case for support and agreeing a strategy for engaging the School’s network of friends and alumnae.

If your school has a funding challenge and needs expert guidance, please contact one of our directors to arrange an initial, no-obligation discussion.
