Syndicates and Class Gifts

Spearhead or join a group of like-minded people to collectively fund a bursary for a Paulina


Over the last decade, parent and alumnae class gifts have raised over £1,600,000 for bursaries. 

Each year, groups of parent or alumnae volunteers co-ordinate with their contemporaries to collectively raise funds towards a full or partial bursary. Speak to Rosemary Torrington (020 7605 4814) directly if you would like to find out more about leading a class gift.

Alumnae class gifts of 1986, 1988 and 1989

14 volunteers from the classes of 1986, 1988 and 1989 have called on their peers to raise funds to support new senior school Paulinas. With four new joiners in September 2016, all funds raised will go to support them directly. Their collective target is £50,000, of which £12,309 has been secured so far. Over time, donations of all sizes quickly add up and we have raised £180,000 from 160 alumnae donors since 2004. It shows that participation at all levels is important and builds quickly to provide significant funding for bursaries.

1986: Ondine Barrow, Sophie Otton, Sophie de Schwarzburg Gunther, Naiza Khan and Angelina Jankovich. Total raised as of July 2016: £6,359.

2016 class gift

Parents from the leaving class of 2016 have raised £160,000 together for a Paulina joining us in MIV in September 2016. We extend our warmest thanks to each donor who participated, as well as a special thank you to the fundraising volunteers who helped co-ordinate this success.

2015 class gift

Both parents and students from the graduating class of 2015 raised £200,000 which will fund a 7-year means tested bursary for a Paulina who joined us in September 2015. Thank you to all those girls and parents who worked as volunteers and gave so generously.

1993 alumnae class gift

The class of 1993 collectively raised £15,700 to support a girl in the senior school. She continues her second year of A Level humanities studies in September 2016 and is thrilled to be part of the Paulina community.

Completed gifts

Our many thanks go to the following parent and alumnae groups who have funded bursaries in the past.

The leaving class of 2014, both parents and students, raised over £216,000 which funds a full seven-year bursary and half a senior school bursary. Gifts ranged from £10,500 from parents to £5 from VIII students themselves, making this class gift a true collaborative and philanthropic achievement.

Thank you to the parents of the classes of 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013

Thank you to the alumnae classes of 1978, 1982, 1983, 1985 and 1987, and the Hellenic Syndicate
