Ways of Giving

Tax-Efficient GivingDonations to the school represent tax-efficient giving opportunities, through gift aid, tax rebates for highest earners, and tax deductible donations for US citizens.
As a registered Charity we can reclaim tax on all donations made by UK taxpayers. For every £100 donated we will receive an extra £25 at no extra cost to you. If you pay a higher rate tax, you can also claim the difference between the higher rate of tax 40 and/or 45% and the basic rate of 20% on the total gross value of your donation.
For example: If you donate £100, the total value of your donation is £125 – so you can claim back:
£25 - if you pay tax at 40% (£125 x 20%)
