    Support Us

    The Camden School for Girls is proud to be one of the top state schools in the country. We rely on regular donations from parents and alumni to improve the facilities we can provide for all our pupils. In these uncertain times, your help is urgently needed, as state funding alone looks unable to provide the educational funds that our pupils need and deserve. 


    We are fortunate in having an engaged community of parents, friends and alumnae/alumni, many of whom support the school financially and we are extremely grateful to them. Our aim now is to get at least 50% of parents to donate, ideally on a monthly basis and to raise more money from our wider CSG community. In these difficult times we need more support than ever before so that we can continue to provide an excellent education along with exceptional extra-curricular activities, pastoral care, trips, performances and additional support to all our pupils.

    Please look at our Excellence Fund brochure attached below and please consider donating here

    The school is grateful to have the support of our parents, friends and alumni:

    A History of Camden School for Girls

    A fascinating memoir of Camden School for Girls which was founded in 1871 by Frances Mary Buss. Written by Fiona Millar, writer, journalist and CSG alumna with photographs and archive material spanning the decades across 150 years.

    A must-read for everyone in the Camden community!

    We suggest a minimum donation of £10 which includes UK postage and packing. We also welcome regular donations, no matter how small, to sustain our excellence for another 150 years to come.

    All proceeds support the Camden School Foundation of Frances Mary Buss (registered charity number 312763) the funds from which are used for the benefit of the whole school.



    Donations are dedicated to the school’s most urgent priorities. Current projects include:

    • Improving pupil wellbeing by providing better space for play and recreation for our younger pupils to encourage physical activity, creativity and enjoyment
    • Improving the air quality around the school site with a program of planting green screens around the perimeter of the school
    • Improving paths around the school
    • Improving teaching spaces
    • Improving and upgrading the D&T rooms and facilities
    • Redecorating the art studio and student toilets

    Please give as generously as you are able and use the donate link below to set up a regular gift or make a one off donation.





    Camden School for Girls is a non-diocesan Voluntary Aided (VA) school.  The Foundation of Frances Mary Buss (registered charity number 312763) owns the land and School buildings and is responsible for maintaining these rather than Camden Council. When the Foundation receives funding to carry out building work at the school, it has to pay 10% of the costs. The Foundation is also responsible for emergency repairs and replacements, for example, if the boilers in the school stop working and need to be replaced. The Foundation does not have large reserves and relies on regular donations from parents and alumni to raise enough money to pay the 10% contribution towards building works and improvements.

    Recent building projects have included:

    • Refurbishing the science labs on both floors of the main building.
    • Updating interactive panels, computers and IT hardware in the whole school.
    • Updating fire doors and smoke detectors in the main building to improve health and safety at the school.

    The object of the Camden School Foundation of Frances Mary Buss is the provision and conduct of a day school for girls in or near the London Borough of Camden, called the Camden School for Girls. The school has the power to admit boys to the sixth form. The school is a comprehensive school which serves the local community by providing education for girls between the ages of 11 and 16 years. It offers a wide-ranging curriculum, excellent teaching and a wealth of extra-curricular opportunities. 

    The sixth form admits girls and boys of normal school age within its capacity who wish to continue their studies in a school setting. These pupils need to meet the grade entry requirement to pursue the courses available.

    The principal purpose of the charity is to secure the future of the school: this involves the maintenance and development of the school buildings in order to enhance the educational environment and experience of its pupils.

    Current Trustees of the Foundation are:

    • Lekha Klouda (Chair)
    • John Atmore
    • Diamond Ashiagbor
    • Bob House
    • Angela Mason
    • Janet Pope
    • Hannah Donat
