Manchester High School for Girls


Saturday 11th June 2016 sees Manchester High's famous Bursary Ball return to the Hilton Deansgate.

This black tie evening is our single largest fundraising event for the Pankhurst Bursary Appeal that enables talented girls, whose families lack the financial means, to attend and benefit from all that Manchester High has to offer.


We are thrilled to announce that our hosts this year will be Key 103 DJ, Darren Proctor as well as TV presenter, and Manchester High parent, Jenny Powell.


Last year's Ball raised over £27,000 and this year's event will see us launch the final push to reach the original Appeal target of £2 million.


£2 million will see 100 girls pass through Manchester High on bursary places.


 The evening includes:

  • Sparkling drinks reception
  • Three-course meal
  • Live music
  • Disco
  • 'Money can't buy' auction

Ticket Prices

  • Individual tickets: £65.00
  • Tables of 10: £600
  • Tables of 12: £720

Tickets and tables are available from Beverley Rubin, simply download and complete the form below, returning it to or call 0161 224 0447.


Sponsorship and Auction Prizes


We are very fortunate that the Bursary Ball attracts many business owners and key decision makers within companies across the city. Indeed, many friends of the School treat the event as an excellent networking opportunity and as such, we are always ready to discuss sponsorship opportunities. Effective sponsorship means that all money raised on the evening can go directly to the Bursary Appeal.


We are also on the look out for fabulous prizes for our 'Money Can't Buy' auction or raffle.
