Legacy Gifts

Leaving a gift in your will is a wonderful way to provide for future generations, and to ensure that your lifetime's legacy and connection to Kingham Hill School is passed on in a tangible way. A gift in your will, however large or small, can enable the School to continue the work of our Founder Charles Baring Young.

C.E.B Young established the school in 1886 as a home for boys who may never have experienced a stable home environment. The school was built and sustained entirely by his vast wealth. When he died in 1928, his work continued through his financial legacy which sustained the school for many more years.

The challenge we face in the 21st century is to continue the mission of the Founder while operating in very different educational and financial contexts. Now as a fee-paying independent school, reliance on fee income alone constrains the pace of what can be achieved.

The 1886 Society

The 1886 society has been established as a means of thanking all those who have made a bequest in their will to benefit Kingham Hill School. Members are invited to school at least once each year, as well as to key events in the School calendar.

Joining the society is an excellent way of keeping in touch with the School’s progress from year to year and allows us to thank you for your support. For more information about legacy giving and the 1886 Legacy Society, please contact Nanci Austin, Development Officer on 01608 731880.
