The William Smith Fund

We launched The William Smith Fund on Founder’s Day 2015 to create a source of vital non-fee income to help sustain our founder’s vision of providing a world-class education for the young people of Portsmouth and the surrounding area, right at the heart of their home city.

We are raising funds to:

  • increase our means-tested bursary provision, to allow us to open our doors to more bright and promising boys and girls from the local area whose families would not otherwise be able to afford the full fees; and
  • contribute towards projects which will have an immediate impact on the educational and co-curricular experience of our current pupils.

The William Smith Fund is a collective fundraising effort made each year by all members of the PGS family – alumni, parents, current and former staff and other friends of the school.
