Supporting the school

Throughout its history The Queen’s School has relied upon a variety of sources to fund its expenses and capital improvements. Direct Grants, Assisted Places, fees and support from the Foundation Bursary Fund have only ever provided just enough income to cover the costs of education.

Fees have always purposely been set low in order to make the school accessible and major capital improvements and the purchase of land and buildings have therefore normally been funded by the generosity of benefactors.

Income, in the form of gifts, is essential to supplement fees so that The Queen’s School may continue to offer a first-class education, at a reasonable cost and retain its ability to offer, where needed, financial assistance with fees.

The Annual Fund supports the school’s annual budget. This fund provides direct assistance to all girls in the school by paying for projects that fall just outside our ability to pay for them from fee income.

The Foundation Bursary Fund offers financial assistance to talented girls whose families cannot afford the fees.

The Buildings Fund supports major improvements to the school’s buildings and facilities.

Making a gift to The Queen’s School through any of these funds is simple and can have tax benefits for you and your family. There are many ways that you can make a gift to the school: a one-off gift, regular giving, the gift of shares, leaving a legacy or giving online.
