The people and causes you remember in your will are a positive recognition of all that is important to you. If you are inspired by music making, The Purcell School and its young musicians, please do remember us when you come to making or updating your will.

We rely on the invaluable generosity of supporters to fund many activities that are integral to developing our talented students. With your help we can continue to make a real contribution towards the education of extraordinarily talented youngsters who are the world-class musicians of tomorrow.

There are many ways in which you can leave a legacy in your will. Legacies made for general purposes are especially valuable, as this allows us to direct your support into projects that are the most needed at that time. However, if you wish your gift to be used to fund a specific area at Purcell some ideas include:

  • Providing scholarships for young musicians of the future
  • Funding new instruments or sponsorship of concerts
  • Contributing to our Master Redevelopment plan to develop and enhance facilities for students
  • Supporting our award winning Outreach programme in the community

Just as legacies pledged in the past are supporting our School today, legacies pledged today help ensure that The Purcell School will be there in the future for our young musicians. We would be happy to talk to you to explore which area of support would mean the most to you. You can do this by contacting Chris Harbour, Head of Development and Philanthropy, on 01923 331131 or

If you have already included a gift to the School in your will or you intend to, then please do let us know. We would really like the opportunity to say thank you and to keep you up to date with news at The Purcell School and how your support will make a difference. Knowing that people intend to benefit us in this special way helps us to plan ahead. You can either give us a call or download and complete the legacy registration form below. This form is not legally binding but it just gives us an indication of your present wishes.

As The Purcell School is a registered charity (Registration number 312855), all bequests to the School are free from inheritance tax. As this is a complex area we do, however, recommend you seek professional legal advice to support you through the process of leaving a gift in your will.
