Frequently Asked Questions

Why do you need to fundraise? Can’t you just raise the fees?

Careful management of fee income has allowed us to develop the school over the past decade and support our generous programme of scholarships and bursaries, however there are great demands on the school’s income which pays for the day-to-day running costs and expenses such as teaching staff salaries, stationery, catering, maintenance, cleaning and transport. We believe that to ensure the continued success of the school, fees must be kept at a similar level to our competitors’ and that our plans can be brought to fruition far earlier than may otherwise be possible through support from right across the Clayesmore community.

How can I make a gift?

You can make your gift to Clayesmore in a number of ways – by a single payment, regular donation or as a bequest in your will.

How will you recognise my gift?

Clayesmore recognises the importance of acknowledging the generosity of its benefactors and is keen to recognise donors as a part of this process. If you wish for your gift to remain anonymous we will of course respect your wishes. To this end we have produced a Donor Charter.

What if I am not a UK resident? Can I still make a donation?

Yes! You can still donate online, via bank transfer or by cheque. Please contact the Development Manager, Sarah Kerr, on 01747 813177 or email her and she will be able to help you.
