From one generation to the next

“Over the centuries, generous individuals have made the decision to include Abingdon in their wills. The impact of these bequests has been huge: land, buildings, bursaries… we would not be the school we are today without this tradition of generosity. Now we would like to invite you to become part of this tradition. Legacies contribute to our future and enable us to expand the opportunities and excellence we have to offer.”
Mike Windsor, Headmaster

“Whether you decide to direct your support to bursaries, as I have, or whether you are happy for it to be used as an unrestricted gift, you can contribute to the future of this inspirational school. And, during your lifetime you can stay in closer touch with Abingdon through the 1563 Society and gain a growing understanding of the good your legacy will do.”
Alan Williams OA (1965), Chairman of The 1563 Society

The 1563 Society

The 1563 Society is one important way in which Abingdon shows gratitude to those who have pledged a legacy.

We hold an annual 1563 Society lunch at Abingdon for members and their partners or guests. We also invite members to other school events over the year, and we keep them informed of developments. In short, membership of the 1563 Society provides the opportunity to develop a close relationship with the Abingdon of today.

In recognition of membership of the 1563 Society, we give members a set of Fiona Rae cufflinks or, if preferred, a pendant with the same design.

We are proud of the close ties we have with those who support us and we are always happy to welcome 1563 Society members to the School at anytime.
