1895 Club - Leaving a Legacy for the Future

Funds raised through legacies enable us to create outstanding opportunities for pupils with funds being used for means tested bursaries, whilst also helping to maintain our beautiful buildings.

We appreciate that, for many, the ability to make donations during their lifetime is limited and, after providing for your family and friends, leaving a gift in your Will is a simple way of making a contribution without compromising current needs. A specific sum is not required, we would simply like to know if you are planning on pledging us a gift.


As we are a registered charity, there are also significant benefits to leaving a gift in your Will as it can help reduce the total tax liability for your family and overall estate. All legacies are free from capital gain and inheritance taxes, which makes them even more valuable for our pupils as no tax will be removed from the total value of your legacy.

Once you have indicated that you would like to make a pledge, we will enrol you in in our legacy club, the 1895 Society. Society members are invited to events throughout the year, including an annual lunch, at which there is an opportunity to meet current pupils who have benefited from fee assisted places, whilst also giving you an opportunity to meet fellow donors.

To make a provision for Worksop College in your Will, please contact Lucy Smithson via email l.smithson@wsnl.co.uk or by calling +44(0)1909 535 765. If you would prefer you can print and fill in a legacy pledge form by clicking HERE

Whether you are able to give £5 or £50 a month, every gift really does make a difference to the lives of future generations of Worksopians.
