As a friend of the school, you may be interested in getting in touch with old friends or colleagues, seeing how the School has changed and developed, or socialising with current parents and friends. Or you may wish to help fundraise or a make a donation. Whatever your motivation, we welcome your contact, interest and support.

If you are a former pupil of Leicester High, a parent of an ‘old girl’, or you used to teach here on the staff and would like to rekindle contact with the School, then please request to be added to our ‘Friends of Leicester High’ mailing list. Contact We will send you our email newsletter - ‘The High’ – every half term and information about forthcoming events.

You can also follow us on twitter @LeicesterHigh.

At Leicester High School, we are extremely keen to maintain links with all our former students, and so enable you to keep in-touch and up-to-date with developments in the lives of your friends and contemporaries from school.

We also have an 'Alumni-where are they now?' page that we are continually adding to. Please send details to if you would like to tell us what you are up to nowadays. Have a look at the section, answer the questions and send us a recent photo and we will add you to the page. Thank you.


There is a committed group of current parents called ‘The Friends of LHS’ who work tirelessly to fundraise for additional resources for the girls. They organise a wide variety of events throughout the year, some of which are open to the wider community. Please contact the Headmaster through if you are interested in helping them in their work or joining the committee.

The Friends organise a wonderful Family Fun Day for The Junior Department, which follows Foundation Sports Day. Bouncy castles, plant stalls, teddy tombola, face painting and free ice lollies from Waitrose, Oadby, were enjoyed by all. 


At Leicester High School for Girls, we pride ourselves on educational excellence and achievement. In an ever-increasing competitive world, it is essential that we develop and progress to meet all present and future challenges.

With this in mind, we have established the Leicester High School Foundation to raise additional funding for the school to meet this demand.

With the help of alumni, parents, staff and friends, the Foundation can impact on all areas of school life, from capital expenditure through to the purchase of classroom equipment. All donations, large or small, are welcome. If you would like to help us, then please contact the School’s Bursar, Mrs Edwena Mackay on 0116 270 5338.

Your support will be gratefully received, and you will be guaranteeing a bright future for Leicester High School.
