NHEHS Bursaries: Making a Difference – The Malinowski Family’s Story
Ensuring that talented and academically gifted girls from all backgrounds have access to education at Notting Hill & Ealing High School is integral to the school’s vision and ethos. Our students, staff, current and former parents and alumnae represent all backgrounds and reflect the culture and community of our school. We know bursaries change lives and benefit the whole school community. At NHEHS, we have a long history of providing bursary awards and our bursary pupils have contributed hugely to the diversity and endeavour of the school.
However, each year we turn away many talented applicants, currently we have around 6% of our students on bursary awards but our ambition is to do much more.
In 2023/4 we will be celebrating our 150th anniversary, such an important milestone feels like the right time to extend our bursary programme to anyone with the ability and potential, regardless of background of wealth.
Over the summer we will be sharing some stories from our alumnae and their families showing what a difference a bursary can make. Read below about the life-changing impact a bursary had for Erin and her family:
‘I had a wonderful 7 years at NHEHS, better than I ever thought possible. I learnt all my subjects from incredible teachers, who taught with passion and dedication and supported me every step of the way. I was told to aim high and work hard to achieve my dreams. I was given amazing opportunities to explore my interests – play new sports, learn a musical instrument, and challenge my academic ability. Without the bursary, I wouldn’t have been able to attend Notting Hill and Ealing High School and none of these experiences would have been available to me. I wouldn’t be the person I am today. For that, and so much more, I will forever be grateful.’
Erin Malinowski, Class of 2020 – Studying Physics at the University of Oxford
‘Receiving a bursary has enabled our daughter to access an all-encompassing education, allowing her to thrive and achieve her maximum potential. Throughout her years at NHEHS she has been nurtured and inspired, becoming the accomplished young woman we are so very proud of. We will be forever grateful for the bursary award.’
