The Putney Fund

We work hard to keep our fees as low as possible, so the Putney Fund enables us to afford projects that might otherwise be a step too far. Every year, generous donations, both large and small, help us to provide exceptional opportunities which extend and support the educational offering at the school.

School Projects

Over recent years our Residency projects have given Putney girls the opportunity to gain invaluable experience working with a Writer and an Orchestra in Residence. This year, we have been fundraising to provide an Orator in Residence, based within the school to help pupils develop their presentation and public speaking skills.

Head's Fund

Gifts to the Head’s Fund enable us to provide financial support to girls at the school who, for one reason or another, may need sudden, or unforeseen help in affording their fees.

Bursaries

By supporting a GDST bursary, you can provide life-changing support for girls of modest means, for whom a Putney education might otherwise be out of reach.

I never in a million years thought I would be someone to go to an independent school. It is the best thing I ever did; I am so thankful that I go to a school every day that I love. I have had a world-class education and partaken in life-changing trips. I have had the chance to be taught by passionate teachers and meet amazing people with whom I hope to remain friends with after I leave School. These two years at Putney have been the best in my life so far, I will always be grateful to the people who helped make them possible.

Legacies

Leaving a gift to Putney in your will is a wonderful way to show support for your old school, and a significant way to impact girls’ education for generations to come. It’s easy to make a bequest, and whether large or small, your generosity can make a world of difference.

Recent changes to Inheritance Tax laws mean there are tax incentives to leaving charitable bequests. Leaving 10% or more of your inheritance to charity will mean you qualify for the reduced rate of Inheritance Tax of 36% (down from 40%). Find out more visit from HMRC.

If you intend to make provisions in your will, or have already done so, please get in touch and let us know you are thinking of us. Details shared are entirely at your discretion but we would love the opportunity to thank you, and to update you on all that is happening at school.
