"We are awestruck by the strong ethos towards empowering girls to try their hand at anything and the large number of extra-curricular school activities available and the strong emphasis on a well-rounded education. Everyone we have interacted with from Trish to Harry the bus driver have been kind and caring and we are in no doubt that sending our daughter to Kilgraston was the best decision we have made for her future."

Other ways to donate include:
Maximise your support with a Gift Aid Donation
Kilgraston School is a registered charity which enables both individual and corporate supporters, who pay tax in the UK, to make tax efficient gifts through the Governments Gift Aid Scheme. A cash donation of any size made under the Gift Aid scheme allows us to reclaim the tax from HM Revenue and Customs at the basic rate; donors simply need to complete the Kilgraston School Gift Aid Declaration Form and return it to the Finance Department at the School with their gift. It is worth 25p in the pound to us if you are a UK taxpayer and is at no extra cost to you, indeed if you pay tax above the basic rate, you can claim the difference between the rate you pay and basic rate on your donation.
Donating straight from your wages or pension
If your employer, company or personal pension provider runs a Payroll Giving scheme, you can donate straight from your wages or pension. This happens before tax is deducted from your income. Ask your employer or pension provider if they run a Payroll Giving scheme.
Leaving gifts to charity in your will
Your will says what will happen to your money, property and possessions after you die. Your donation will either be taken off the value of your estate before Inheritance Tax is calculated or reduce your Inheritance Tax rate, if 10% or more of your estate is left to charity. You can donate a fixed amount, an item or what’s left after other gifts have been given out.
