Annual Giving Report 2019-20
After a successful year of fundraising, we have put together the school's first Annual Giving Report highlighting our achievements and most importantly thanking our supporters and donors.
Our Bursary Fund
Our school was founded through philanthropy: in 1502, former Lord Mayor of London John Percyvale left an endowment in his will to establish a school in his home town of Macclesfield. Our school was born. Since then, the generosity of former pupils, parents and staff through gifts and endowments have led to the continued growth and success of the school.
Many former pupils choose to pass on the benefits of their education at King's by donating to our Bursary Fund. One in 15 pupils at King's receive some kind of financial assistance and, for those children, their bursary is life-changing.
As our country grapples with the repercussions of Covid-19, we are hoping that with your help, we can now raise money for both our Bursary Fund and our Hardship Fund. Both will help support children to join, or maintain their place in, the school, when their parents' financial circumstances may otherwise not allow this.
If you would like to discuss any aspect of supporting our Bursary Fund or Hardship Fund, either through a one-off gift, regular giving or a gift in your will, please contact either our Development or Finance Office.

Our Shared Vision
In 2016 we set ourselves a fundraising target of £3 million for the development of our new campus, and we are delighted that we succeeded in raising £2.5m of this target thanks to the generosity of former pupils, parents, staff, governors and the Merchant Taylors' Company.
Please see our fundraising brochure below or, if you would like to discuss any aspect further please contact either our Development or Finance Office.
Percyvale Legacy Society
We believe making a commitment to The King's School's future by leaving a legacy should be recognised and thanked during the donor's lifetime. We have therefore created The Percyvale Legacy Society, open to all those who have notified us of their intention to make a bequest to the school.
Members of The Percyvale Society will be invited to former pupil events, these occasions will enable the school to update members on its latest developments as well as providing the opportunity to rekindle, maintain and develop friendships. Members will also receive a Silk Former Pupils' tie.
We recognise that a legacy is personal and private and you may choose not to be recognised through membership of the society, which we are happy to respect.
