Leaving a Legacy
Making a Will
As Nottingham High school is a registered charity with HM Revenue & Customs (No.1104251) a gift in your Will in favour of the School would be free from tax and it could reduce the inheritance tax due on your estate. You should seek professional advice when writing or amending your Will. A solicitor will be able to instruct you on the best options available on your personal circumstances and current legislation.
The three most common types of legacy are:
Residual – a residual legacy would leave all, or a percentage of your estate (after specific bequests and costs have been deducted).
Pecuniary – a pecuniary legacy is a gift of a specific sum of money.
Specific – a specific legacy is the gift of a specific item of value such as property, stocks and shares.
Our promise to you
The School acknowledges making a legacy is a very private matter, but it really helps to know what supporters are planning. It is also a real pleasure to be able to recognise your intentions in your lifetime and discuss with you personally how your gift will benefit the School.
The School respects all preferences noted in estate plans to the full extent possible, including honouring the privacy of any donor who wishes to remain anonymous.
