Registered Charity number: 306983 (England & Wales).

At the Girls’ Day School Trust (GDST) we passionately believe that bright girls deserve the best possible start in life regardless of their family background. They’ll get that start with the outstanding education we provide, and our Bursary Fund is vitally important in making this happen.

A bursary-funded place at a GDST school opens the door to a world of possibilities. We’ve helped thousands of girls from disadvantaged backgrounds walk through those doors.

As the largest network of girls’ schools in the UK, we award more bursaries to girls than any other independent school organisation and have given bursaries of 50% or more to 824 senior school girls this year. Since 1997 we have supported over 4,500 through bursaries, a life-changing opportunity for every girl. The GDST is a powerhouse for social mobility for girls across England and Wales.

It is through the support of our alumnae and friends that we are in a position to help as many girls as we can, but to achieve our vision of not turning any girl away because of her financial background, we need your support. A legacy gift is a truly unique way to advance girls’ education.
