Support at all levels is welcome and we would be delighted to discuss gifts of all sizes. You can make a general donation to the building fund or you may consider the below naming opportunities. We also welcome collaborative gifts between year groups and you can divide your donation over a number of years. To name a space in the new building or discuss any of these options further, contact Rosemary Torrington: 020 7605 4814 or rosemary.torrington.@spgs.org. As of July 2016, we have raised £550,000 towards our £1 million target.
Make a gift to the general building fund:
Name a Stone
A wonderful landscaped quad with a large lawn for relaxation and informal play will be created between the Science block and the new senior school. A limited number of engraved stones will form part of the permanent structure of the landscaping, and currently we are operating a waiting list and hope to be able to accept additional donations to name stones.
Name a Classroom
The History and Geography departments will be based in the new senior school building, with approximately 10 new additional rooms. Each of the light-filled, purpose-built classrooms, seminar rooms, and the careers and higher education centre can each be named for a donation of £50,000.
Name a Courtyard
Green, fresh light-filled spaces for quiet study, meetings and socialising; the new courtyards will be a core part of the Geography and History departments. A donation of £15,000 names one of the courtyards.
Name one of the new ball courts
Five new tennis courts will double up as new netball courts. Each will have a high-specification sports safety surface to protect against injury and benefit from floodlighting. The courts will be made available for community use at agreed times and offer a much needed extra-curricular resource. £100,000 will name one of the five courts.
Name a Garden Room – fully funded
We are delighted to report we have named all seven garden rooms through the generosity of three St Paul’s families. These outdoor rooms offer quiet spaces for reflection and relaxation where girls can read, chat to one another or meet with tutors for discussion. The spaces offer scope for summer drama productions, musical groups and for exhibiting art work. The garden rooms were named for a total of £35,000.
