Message and Video from the Principal

Throughout the coronavirus pandemic our pupils have, as always, been our top priority. Their education and well-being are central to our purpose, guiding our actions in adapting what we do to meet their needs and to strengthen their sense of connection and belonging as members of the Dame Allan’s family.

Last year, we launched the COVID-19 Bursary Appeal to ask for your help and you kindly gave it. Thank you. 

However, as the impact of the pandemic goes on into 2021, we are continuing to support families who, as much as before, need our help. These families are experiencing financial difficulties that would ordinarily result in having to withdraw their children from the Schools. We are fully committed to supporting them through our existing resources, but these resources are not infinite.  

We therefore still need your help.

The average COVID-19 Bursary award has been for 40% of a term’s fees, around £1,800 for every child supported. All applicants have said they can make some contribution which is heartening and means that we are supporting genuine need.  

If you are able, please give what you can. 

Your donation will help us to secure our objectives of providing continuity of education for our pupils whilst ensuring the Schools can continue to grow and thrive into our fourth century of existence.  

Whatever else they may lose because of the pandemic, together we can help this generation of Allanians to maintain their sense of belonging and continue to benefit from the opportunities that come with an exceptional Dame Allan’s education.

Thank you.

Will Scott, Principal of Dame Allan's Schools
