Giving and Legacy Support

Without the great generosity that our alumni, parents and friends bestow upon the School, children from the most deprived of backgrounds would not have access to the life-changing education that they receive at Wolverhampton Grammar School.

Thank you if you are considering making a donation, gift or legacy to Wolverhampton Grammar School. Your support will make a difference and all donations are used to ensure the continued improvement and accessibility of our education. The School has a specific fund, the Wolverhampton Grammar School Independence Appeals Fund which is designated for the provision of bursaries though donations may also be made for specific projects or general educational purposes directly to the School.

If you have any questions or require further information, please contact the Development Team email: development@wgs-sch.net or tel: 01902 421326

Leaving a Legacy

Leaving a legacy to Wolverhampton Grammar School is one of the most powerful ways in which you can help future generations. Money left to a charity like Wolverhampton Grammar School (Registered Charity Number: 529006) or to Wolverhampton Grammar School Independence Appeals Fund (Registered Charity Number: 507487) is also exempt from inheritance tax and may help reduce the overall amount tax that must be paid on your estate.

Changes made to the UK Inheritance Tax law 2012 could benefit your primary beneficiaries: by leaving 10% or more of your estate to charity, the inheritance tax payable on your net estate reduces from 40% to 36%.
