Ashford has always been a school with momentum. Taking inspiration from our past and building upon the legacy of previous generations, we want to ensure that the School in the 21st Century fulfils our obligation to those who came before us and to those who will benefit from an Ashford education now and in the future. At every stage of its history, the School has been aided by parents and former pupils to take it to the next stage of its development. Ashford is a school that delivers on its promises, so you can have the confidence that your support will really count.

Regular Giving – The 1898 Society & Annual Fund.

A direct debit made over a three or five-year period to the Foundation’s Annual Fund appeal is an attractive option for both donors and the School as it enables the cost of the gift to be spread over a number of the year whilst enabling the School to predict future donation income with a high degree of certainty. Each year donors to the Annual Fund provide the resources to enhance and broaden the life and educational development of our pupils and to build up greater reserves to fund mean-tested financial support for our pupils.

Whether you make your donation by a single annual gift or by a regular monthly direct debit payment, those whose annual donation to the Foundation is £1,898 or more will be invited to become members of The 1898 Society. In recognition of the fact that some younger Ashfordians might be interested in supporting the School, but not at this level, there are special tiers of membership for alumni under 35 years of age and for recent leavers.

Your gifts, whether regular or one-off, can make a significant difference to the School. Our ambitions for the future are bold and innovative but we will need support from our communities if we are to realise them. We know our alumni, parents and friends are loyal and grateful for the education they and their children receive so we hope you already feel you have many reasons to support Ashford School.
