Charity Collections & Fundraisers 2022-2023
In support of Movember this month and International Men’s Day on Saturday (19th), Lower School are holding a ‘wear a moustache’ to school day tomorrow, Friday 18th November. Boys can come into Lower School wearing a false moustache or buy one for charity from the LS office for 20p. All other donations towards Movember can be put in the collection box and will be sent to the charity.
Staff and students of Enfield Grammar, please join in and support this very worthy cause on Thursday 8 December. Wear a jolly Christmas jumper (in addition to normal school uniform for students – it is not non-uniform day) and make a contribution of £2. This year, for every £2 donated, the UK Government has also promised to give £2 to Save The Children!
Yesterday, our music department and students went ‘busking’ in Palace Gardens. Despite the freezing cold, icy fingers and blue lips ❄️❄️ we managed to make £144 for the North London Hospice charity. 🎶
Thank you to local community choir group #RVoices who are kindly organising a collection of unwanted coats for the #Coats4Calais charity. We managed to put together 4 large bags of coats from our FEGS (PTA) cupboard that have previously been donated by parents or were left as lost property during the last academic school year. If you would like to know more about this charity or to give a cash or coat donation, please see their website: https://care4calais.org/coats4calais/
As a school community we are committed to supporting our students and their families and so we are launching a fundraising appeal to provide financial assistance to those who are experiencing serious financial hardship due to the economic crisis and the after effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Our hardship fund, which is supported by local businesses and donations, currently supports students by providing uniform vouchers, contributions to trips, school equipment and study materials. We would like to extend the support we offer our students with additional funds for their families for household essentials such as: Food vouchers, Energy vouchers, Energy efficient household appliances. Each barrier or worry that we can remove for a young person improves their experience at school and helps to support their engagement and learning. Thank you in advance for any donations you are able to give.

Winter Term 2021
Festive Hampers As a School Community, we’re fundraising again this year to enable our staff to shop for, prepare and deliver some lovely food filled hampers that will help members of our Community have a much happier Christmastime. Every little helps 🙂
You may recall that last year, as a school, we ran a Christmas Hamper Appeal to help some of our families who, due to the Coronavirus, had suffered hardship and trauma. The Appeal was very successful, and it is for that reason, I would like to run it again this year. I am very aware that some of our families are still feeling the lasting effects of the Coronavirus.
I would again like to call on our Community to get involved in providing hampers for families that need them, to help them through the busy and expensive Christmas period.
If you would like to donate some money to support members of our Community, please follow the link below. I ask that you give generously. The donation page will close on 8 December 2021, to allow us time to purchase, prepare and deliver the hampers.
Thank you as always for your generosity and support.
If you feel that a food hamper would help you through this challenging time, please email the School at [email protected] expressing a desire to receive some help from the Enfield Grammar School Community. Your request will be treated sensitively and in the strictest confidence. You will be added to the list and we will endeavour to provide you with a Christmas Hamper.

Update July 2021 September 2021 – This Fundraiser is now closed
The GoFundMe fundraiser for our student has raised a staggering £16,184.
We, the student and his family would like to thank our community for their incredible generosity and kindness. This will help greatly towards the cost of his recovery.
Update July 2021
The GoFundMe page closes at 4pm on Wednesday 14 July 2021, so please share this with all your family and friends. EGS is hoping to have some of our students present the cheque to the family on the last day of term in one of our end of year assemblies
Update June 2021
You will have heard through school letters, local news and on social media about the terrible road traffic accident that recently happened in Enfield Town, involving one of our Year 11 students.
This has left him with life-changing injuries and he is still in hospital. The School has received many messages of kindness, offering help and support for the student and his family.
This fundraiser has been set up to facilitate the collection of any financial contributions that people wish to make.
Following discussions with his family, any monies raised will be shared between the hospital who are taking care of his medical needs, and to cover costs of any ongoing treatment to aid in his recovery.
Thank you for your continued support of our Enfield Grammar School community.
