Donation Policy

The Chairman of the Board and the Headmaster welcome offers of donations of all sizes, whether in connection with specific campaigns or to add to the school’s endowment, as these enable the school’s continuing development over the long term.

Donations must be freely given with no expectation of anything in return other than due thanks and recognition. The Chairman of the Board and Headmaster are pleased to accept lawful donations which are given in good faith and which are compatible with the school’s aims, values and strategic objectives. As the school values and safeguards its autonomy, integrity and reputation, the Chairman of the Board and the Headmaster do not accept donations when a condition of acceptance would compromise these fundamental principles.
