Hearts of Gold Campaign

The Hearts of Gold Campaign, invites you to join us in building a lasting legacy to enable children from all backgrounds to benefit from an HSD education and realise their true potential.

From our inception in 1239, we have welcomed and supported a wide range of young people and our vision is to provide an opportunity for every child to access an education at the School, regardless of their family's financial circumstances.

Every year demand for bursary support is growing, but raising the necessary funds is not easy.

  • We aim to offer a place to any pupil who would thrive within our school.
