Annual Fund

The Annual Fund

Unlike many Schools, The Abbey does not have an endowment fund to draw from to invest in our environment, our resources, or our bursary programme.

The Annual Fund enables us to raise money for extra educational experiences, equipment, enhancing our environment, and supporting the areas of greatest need.

The Abbey Annual Fund criteria

We are pleased to announce the Annual Fund projects for 2018/19

  • Artist in Residence and involvement in community arts event
  • Reducing injury through sport
  • Extension of The Abbey’s Law Society to younger pupils

We appreciate receiving any assistance, where or when you are able to do so. As a donor you will be enabling The Abbey’s vision of continuing to embody excellence, inspiration and empowerment in the education of girls.
