60th Anniversary Fundraising Campaign

We have now completed most of our Tower Block Refurbishment Project, but still need to raise a further £7,000 to finalise the finishing touches.

We hope that you will help us by ‘buying’ a Number or Country. Your chosen name will then be permanently remembered on the Number or Country Donation Plaques which will be featured in the Tower Block. If you are able to make a Regular Giving commitment before 31st December 2019, you can choose to have your chosen name displayed on either the Number or Country Donation Plaque.

We look forward to presenting our completed project to you at our Tower Block Opening Event in February 2020 – when we will also be unveiling our Number and Countries Donation Plaques.

With your generous support we raised £102,332 of new donations in the 2018-2019 academic year – Thank You!

The AHS School Fund

For many years now we have raised money for very valuable development projects from parents, alumni, the AHSA and other supporters of the school, via our ‘Building A Brighter Future’ AHS School Fund.

The AHS School Fund is our scheme where parents and alumni donate monthly by direct debit, or through a one-off donation.

It helps to develop the school’s facilities and resources to ensure that every girl is able to fulfil her potential, wherever her strengths lie.

These contributions have helped us to achieve so much for our students:

  • The Sports Hall
  • The Library
  • The Sixth Form Centre
  • The Dining Room
  • Netball/tennis courts and floodlighting
  • History and Languages classrooms
  • Sound and lighting in the Main Hall and Harding Hall
  • Boiler and roof replacements.

Please consider whether you can play your part in providing the best possible facilities for your daughter and for generations of AHS students to come. 

For more information, please download your AHS Donation Form  HERE or refer to our new online donation system

Every donation of whatever size helps, and every penny is put to good use – so please do take the time to consider how you can help.

Maximising Your Donations With Gift Aid

Through our charitable status, your donation can be boosted through Gift Aid! When you complete your AHS School Fund Donation Form and sign the Gift Aid declaration, we can claim an extra 25p from HMRC for every £1 you donate.

Please sign the Gift Aid section of your donation  form – it makes a big difference to us!

For further information, please contact Mrs Pexton apexton@ahs.bucks.sch.uk

Matched Giving

Please check with your employer if they will match your donations to our AHS Fund!

Already parents are adding new companies to our Matched Giving List. Thank you!

Matched Giving is when a company matches the amount of fundraising an employee gives to a registered charity, as part of its CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility). Many companies help charities through a matched giving scheme and some will match pound for pound the donations made by its employees to registered charities.

If you are donating to the AHS Fund, your donation may be matched by your employer through Matched Giving. Please enquire with your HR or Payroll department or contact Mrs Pexton for a list of companies we know participate in Matched Giving.
