Being chosen for a bursary was an incredible privilege and it gave me the opportunity to spend some of the most happy, well-balanced and motivated years of my life at Bloxham School."Joe Cooper (Sy 05-10)
The Egerton Society exists to celebrate and recognise the support that members of the Bloxham community provide to the School by leaving gifts in their Wills.
Anyone who has left a gift, or plans to leave a legacy gift to the School, will be invited to join the Egerton Society so that the School can ensure that the gift is managed according to wishes. By leaving legacy gifts, members help Bloxham thrive for many years to come, ensuring that future generations of Bloxhamists can benefit from all that the School has to offer.
Our primary goal is to build an endowment fund that will ensure that legacy gifts provide a long-term source of assistance with fees for pupils who need it.
We recognise, however, that legacy gifts are highly personal and there are other options to consider if the endowment fund is not a preferred choice. Whatever option they choose, for many members leaving a legacy is a way to become involved in securing the future of the School they hold dear; a lasting gift that will benefit a whole community for generations to come. It can also be highly tax-efficient.
The Egerton Society provides a unique way for alumni and supporters of Bloxham to stay connected with the School and ensure that the spirit of Bloxham lives on from generation to generation.
Becoming an Egerton Society Member
Egerton Society membership simply requires confirmation via the membership form to the School that you have included Bloxham in your Will. You will then be invited to Society events, receive special communications from the School and, upon receipt of your gift, your name will be added to the Bloxham Book of Benefaction in the Egerton Library.
For more information or for a confidential discussion please contact the Development Office.
The bursary allowed me to stay at Bloxham during such a crucial time in growing up, providing me with both the personal and academic skills to pursue a career in science. I don’t think I would be the person I am today without it.Rose Smith (Ry 13-17)
