Contribution

GSA schools make a significant contribution to society and instil a strong sense of social responsibility in their students

 

When your daughter joins a GSA school, she will become part of the successive generations of young women we have inspired to make noteworthy personal and professional contributions. Our alumnae include pioneering scientists, award winning engineers, talented actors, broadcasters, business women and charity campaigners.

GSA schools play a pivotal role in local communities, culturally and socially as well as economically. We employ thousands of staff and support many more jobs through the vast range of products and services schools buy. In fact, we generate a sizeable proportion of the £9.5 billion which the independent schools sector contributes to Britain’s GDP. We also help to save the tax payer approximately £3 billion per year by educating children outside of the state sector.

Perhaps most importantly, examples of making a difference can be found every day in the many collaborations and partnerships that exist between GSA and state schools. We share knowledge and resources in mutually beneficial relationships which broaden the experience and raise the aspirations of staff and students alike.

Many former GSA students have gone on to become successful women leaders in their chosen field:
