Chairman’s message

Kate Bingham, OP 1976 to 1983, past parent, governor and Chairman of the Foundation Council

kate-binghamSt Paul’s Girls’ School has always provided an education of excellence to promising students regardless of origin and financial background. As a leading girls’ school, we opened our doors in 1904 with a number of means-tested scholarships and from the outset, have always welcomed diversity, talent and independence.

St Paul’s never stops evolving and developing new ways to ensure the highest quality facilities and opportunities for academic, pastoral and extra-curricular provision.

The challenge for us is funding. We do not benefit from a large endowment or state funding. Based in central London 70 per cent of our costs are dedicated to attracting and retaining the best possible teachers. If we are to maintain the inclusive ethos and excellent educational opportunities of today, for tomorrow’s Paulinas, we need to rely on the support of parents and alumnae.

We hope that those in our wider community will do whatever they can to ensure that St Paul’s can continue to thrive in the future.
