The AHS School Fund

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 Tower Block Refurbishment
  • 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

Aylesbury High School is a registered charity (No 1058760) and can reclaim tax on all donations that UK taxpayers make under the Gift Aid scheme, increasing the value of the gift to AHS and decreasing the cost of the gift to donors.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 – A Way To Optimise Your Donation Through Your Employer

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. 

Please check with your employer if they will match your donations to our AHS Fund by contacting your Human Resources or Payroll Department; or alternatively email Mrs Pexton for a list of companies we know are already participating in Matched Giving.
