Leave a gift in your will

We understand that providing for your loves ones will be your first priority when making a will and so we are grateful and moved when alumnae feel deeply enough about what St Helen and St Katharine meant to them to choose to support future generations of students.

Leaving a gift in your will gives you the most wonderful opportunity to have a lasting impact on the School and to show your support in a way you may not be able to during your lifetime.

Myra Jones (1968 leaver)

"I was a ‘Scholarship girl’ in the 1960s through the direct grant scheme. I would not otherwise have been able to attend St Helen’s and my life may have taken a lesser path.

The School helped me to discover and develop my talents, and I gained an ability to express myself with a confidence which has never left me. By leaving a legacy in my will, I hope that another girl, sometime in the future, will be able to discover herself, as I did."

Make your will for free

We know that organising your will can seem like a daunting task and this is why we have partnered with Bequeathed, whose Will for Good service allows you to write your will for free.

The process is very simple and includes free legal advice. For further information and to make your Will for Good, please go to 

If you do decide to use the free will service, we would be very grateful if you chose to remember the School in your will – but please be assured you’re under no obligation to leave a gift when using this service. 

Thank you!

If you have any questions about the free will service or leaving a legacy to the School, please do not hesitate to get in contact with Mathew Iredale, Head of Philanthropy and Alumnae Relations ( or 01235-546494).

Please note that the will writing service provided by Bequeathed is independent of St Helen and St Katharine. By participating in the will writing service, you become a direct client of the will provider.
