How You Can Support Our Pupils

From buying an item from our Foundation shop to becoming a Percival Donor, there are so many ways you can support us. 

The Percival Gift Scheme

When Clifton High School opened its doors in 1877, the first pupil on the register was Elizabeth (Bessie) Percival. The School instilled in Bessie a passion for art; she became an accomplished artist in oils and water colours, exhibiting many of her works at the Royal Academy. Bessie describes her time at School as a 'dream of delight'.

Her legacy continues in our Percival Gift Scheme which supports strategic projects across the whole School and enables us to provide bursaries in the Senior School and Sixth Form.

Collective giving through the Percival Gift Scheme assures our community, parents, friends and the Clifton Rosarians of the benefit their donations have made and continue to make to the School and its pupils. Donors may give monthly, quarterly or annually and through the Government's Gift Aid scheme, your donation could be worth so much more, at no extra cost to you.

The 1877 Club

To recognise and thank you for your generosity, all those who notify us of their intention to leave a gift to the School will automatically become a member of the 1877 Club, named after our School's founding year.

As a member of the 1877 Club you will receive invitations to special occasions including an annual 1877 Club event as well as specific communications to keep you updated on the enormous impact legacy-giving has at our School.

If you have any questions about leaving a legacy please contact Mrs Elizabeth Bond, Director of Development or telephone the Foundation team on 0117 933 9081.

Leaving a legacy - Supporting future generations

Legacies, no matter the size, are hugely valuable to the School, and for those who have the foresight to remember us in their Will, we have immense gratitude.

We recognise that any gift is deeply personal and that you may wish to specify how your legacy will be used. If you are considering leaving a gift to the School in your Will, regardless of whether you consider it to be large or small, we would be pleased to discuss your intentions.
