Join us in the joy of giving

We love King’s College 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 OAs, 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 the College. Given the tradition of philanthropy at King’s, we have named the Club ‘1880’ after the date of the College’s foundation.

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 Richard Biggs, 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 meet regularly with the pupils, house parents and teachers to discuss how to make the King’s 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.

ENHANCING KING'S PROJECTS
  • “The 1880 Club has enabled us to purchase an E-gel Machine. Having tested it during the holidays, I am excited about its potential for enriching lessons on gene technologies and am starting to think about outreach ideas. I cannot wait for the pupils to start using it this term.”
    - Dr Rebecca Stone Head of Biology

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:

  • want to cancel this declaration
  • change your name or home address
  • no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains
