Aimed at making regular giving more widespread among parents, staff and Friends of King's Hall School

It has been an eye-opening day for our Year 6 #reading ambassadors, who have been expanding their minds with… - 3 hours ago
  • “The Enhancing King’s funding that our libraries have received has enabled us to boost the school’s strong reading culture even further, bringing a new dimension to the ways in which the children can experience, share and enjoy books. For example, the refurbished Pre Prep Log Cabin Library is now a delightful place for our youngest pupils to discover the joys of reading, and in the Prep we look forward to the addition of large outdoor beanbags for the annual summer tradition that is the Outdoor Library”
    - Emily Marcuccilli, Librarian
  • “It is wonderful to have the opportunity to introduce so many children to the delights of string playing, and we hope to encourage some budding violinists while also having lots of fun! We are hugely grateful to the 1880 Club for supporting our young musicians”
    - Gareth Dayus-Jones, Director of Music
Join Us in the Joy of Giving

Join Us in the Joy of Giving

We love King’s Hall and everything it stands for in a turbulent world. Join the 1880 Club today, right now ideally, to participate in the future prosperity of your alma mater.

The Club aims to make regular giving more widespread among parents, staff and friends. Giving a little each month (e.g. £1.88) or through an annual payment (e.g. £188) has a hugely positive impact on the future of King's Hall School.

  • “Fundraising is the gentle art of teaching the joy of giving.”
    - Hank Rosso
What is in it For You?

What is in it For You?

As well as experiencing the joy of giving, in return for your generosity, we will send you:

  • A stylish Castelli 1880 Club note book
  • A letter of thanks from Justin Chippendale, our Headmaster
  • Updates on the impact of your kindness

1880 Club members will also be entitled to a reduced ticket price at any of our events.

What We Do With Your Money

What We Do With Your Money

We communicate regularly with teachers to discuss how to make the King’s Hall experience even better. Together we have identified several items as enhancements, which sit outside the provision of the school’s day-to-day budget.

Your generosity will be put towards one of these projects and will mean an immediate benefit to all areas of school life.

  • “I am delighted to have received funding for a set of Chinese bilingual dictionaries. These dictionaries, along with the sets we already have for Spanish and French, will provide our overseas pupils with the tools they need to communicate effectively and understand aspects of another culture.”
    - Kathy Aladin - Learning Strategies and EAL Teacher
  • “The school and children are hugely appreciative of the new, logoed bobble hats to wear away on cold and windy tournament days. Not only are they quite trendy but the pupils will look smart and present themselves as a real team amongst the crowds”
    - Claire Chippendale - Headmaster's Wife and Science Teacher

Personal Details

If you are a UK tax payer, using Gift Aid means that for every £1 you give, King’s School’s can reclaim 25p from HMRC, helping your donation go further.

I confirm I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for each tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities that I donate to will reclaim on my donations in that tax year, and I further understand that if I pay less tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference. I further understand that if I pay Income Tax at a rate higher than the basic rate and want to receive additional tax relief, I must include all my Gift Aid donations on my Self-Assessment tax return or ask HMRC to adjust my tax code. Until I notify you otherwise, I want to be treated as Gift Aid:

This donation only
This donation and other donations I've made during the current and last four tax years
This donation, other donations I've made during the current and last four tax years, and all future donations
Sorry, I am not eligible for Gift Aid
By clicking 'Join the Club' above, you are agreeing to the terms of our Privacy Policy and Online Payment Terms.

Gift Aid repayments from HMRC will be used for the same purpose as the donation on which the Gift Aid is collected.

Please notify the Development Office if you:
