The Claridge Harris Club recognises old scholars, staff and friends who have generously remembered the School in their will.

The Claridge Harris Club was established to celebrate and honour the enormous contributions made to Girton Girls’ School by Dorothy Ward (née Claridge) and her family and to King’s College by Don Harris. The Club acknowledges the proud history of our two founding schools and the contribution they made to Pembroke today.

Membership of the Claridge Harris Club is open to anyone who pledges a bequest to the School.

Most importantly, by becoming a member, you provide the School with the opportunity to thank you during your lifetime - inviting you to special events and keeping you in touch with the School and students of today.

If you have made the decision to leave a bequest to Pembroke we would like to hear from you and welcome you to the Claridge Harris Club.

I am a proud old schol­ar, as is my Moth­er. We both have a fond mem­o­ries of our time spent in our sec­ondary school­ing years. Mum’s were at Gir­ton and mine at Pem­broke. Both schools played a sig­nif­i­cant role in our lives. Whilst mum’s scholas­tic achieve­ments far out­shone mine, both of us have been suc­cess­ful in our work­ing lives. What I loved about being a stu­dent at the School was that all stu­dents were val­ued. Friend­ships forged dur­ing our school­ing years are still very impor­tant to both my moth­er and to me, decades after leav­ing school. My hope is that my Bequest to Pem­broke School will pos­i­tive­ly sup­port the needs of future stu­dents in the same way as gen­er­ous bequestors have done before me.
