The Annual Fund
Every year, the Annual Fund supports projects that we believe make a great educational exceptional. This appeal does not ask for big gifts; the majority of gifts are small, many given by Direct Debit. This appeal is about bringing the community together in support of our girls, so gifts of every size are warmly welcomed.
With your generous support this year, we would like to focus on:
Taking education outside the classroom
Learning goes well beyond the classroom door at Putney and we are always seeking to develop innovative and inspirational teaching and learning opportunities for pupils both inside and out.
By increasing the biodiversity on the school site, we want to transform some of our outdoor space into a ‘living experiment’ bringing learning to life outdoors.
Pupils will be involved throughout, as we aim to encourage new plants, insects and animals. From science and geography to art, this emphasis in biodiversity will help to inspire and challenge pupils at every age and stage.
From bird baths and bug hotels to benches, we want to design spaces for collaboration, small group study or simply for chatting with friends during break. The project will also have a positive impact on wellbeing, offering tranquil space for reflection.
Moreover it will provide a lasting legacy for girls to experience and enjoy for years to come.
Providing opportunities for everyone is a core value of the school. As every year, the Head’s Fund will continue to assist pupils with modest means.

Last year’s achievements
Thanks to the generous support of the Putney High School community, we are able to fund a series of art talks and workshops as well as an Orchestra in Residence. These projects will enthuse girls of all ages and abilities not just over the next year but also, we will ensure the benefits are felt and remembered in years to come.
Art talks will continue throughout the academic year. Pupils from the Junior and Senior School will experience a myriad of different techniques and art forms and learn about how art translates into the working world.
The Orchestra in Residence enables girls throughout the school to learn and be inspired by the renowned London Mozart Players as well as with an award-winning a cappella group. Girls will benefit from workshops, masterclasses and concerts. This year will culminate in a performance in Central London, a fitting showcase for this special project.
‘This project enables us to promote excellence in the Performing Arts and provide truly life-changing musical experiences that the girls will never forget.'
Mr Angus Meryon, Director of Music
