Online Charity & Non Profit Fundraising Services

The Headfort Trust is an educational charity that owns Headfort House. For over 70 years Headfort House has been home to Headfort School, which has provided an outstanding and unique preparatory education at Headfort House. Current parents, past pupils and old friends of Headfort have been deeply saddened by its unexpected closure in March 2020.

There has been an overwhelming collective desire to retain the educational ethos and Headfort 'magic'. To do this we aim to re-found the school on solid financial principles with a very professional management team supported by all stakeholders.

The Headfort Trust supports the sustaining of quality, primary education at Headfort House, and this campaign is to ensure the doors can re-open in September - and that a new school can begin at Headfort House.

This campaign aims to provide an exceptional and unique co-educational day and boarding school for children aged up to 13 years, building on the solid foundations of the past. 

Headfort Trust was founded at Headfort House in the 1990's to provide educational facilities. It was established as a Charitable Trust, governed by a Board of Directors.

The House and grounds have been a central part to education at Headfort House. The Trust has striven over the years to provide the pupils with the freedom to enjoy the acres of parkland in a safe manner.

Our campaign will support the re-opening of the school by aiming to provide: 

  • Short term cash requirements in order to open the doors of the school in September 
  • A fund that provides the financial stability of the school over the 5+ years ahead 
  • A plan for the building that can, over time, modernise the campus and ensure a healthy, safe and exciting environment for current and future students
