Ways of Giving

There are a number of ways in which you can help to support Cheadle Hulme School. We appreciate that charitable giving is a personal decision and we would like to ensure that you are able to contribute by using the appropriate method for you. Every gift, whatever its value, makes a real difference.

Regular Giving

For every 100 Old Wacs who commit to a monthly donation of £10 over five years, we can support a young person right through their education at CHS.

Many donors choose to make a regular gift. Making payments on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis by Direct Debit not only helps you as the donor budget your payments and perhaps allows for a more substantial gift to be made, but it is particularly valuable to the School as it creates dependable income, which allows both long term planning of funding and flexibility to respond to the demands placed on the Bursary Fund as they arise.

If you would like to donate through Direct Debit all you need to do is visit our secure web page or get in touch with us to request a donation form (and please sign the Gift Aid Declaration) and we will do the rest. If you prefer to donate via Standing Order and instruct your bank to make regular payments, please contact ER and we will send you the relevant bank details.

Tom Appleton, from the Class of 1994 explained to us why he has chosen to give back to CHS:

For me, giving to CHS is not about giving back, it’s about making a commitment to the future. Of course I give because of my personal connection to the School and the wonderful opportunities it opened up to me, which I’ll always be grateful for.  But I also give because I believe a great education can transform the life of a young person and I support the School’s vision to reach out to as many young people as possible. A diverse mix of cultures and backgrounds is an essential preparation for all young people for life beyond their CHS education”.

Single Gift

To make an individual gift, you can do so via our secure web page. Alternatively, contact us to request a donation form or make a payment over the phone by calling us on 0161 488 3341.


Gift Aid

If you are a UK Tax Payer, you can increase the value of your gift to Cheadle Hulme School by allowing us to claim Gift Aid on your donation. This adds 25p for every £1 you donate to the total of your donation, without costing you an extra penny. If you pay tax at the higher or additional rate, you can claim the difference between the rate you pay and basic rate on your donation. Gift Aid can be applied to both one-off donations and regular donations made by Direct Debit or Standing Order.

Legacy Giving

Leaving a gift in your will to Cheadle Hulme School


Leaving a gift in your will is a way of giving something back to the School without a cost to you during your lifetime, a way of leaving something that will be appreciated by future generations of students and leave a lasting legacy.

Cheadle Hulme School is counting on all Old Waconians to safeguard the future of the School itself, the buildings and its resources, and to provide a lifetime of memories and a life changing education to those who would not be able to attend the School without financial support.

Leaving a gift in your will to Cheadle Hulme School, to be used where it is needed most, provides the School and the Trustees with the possibility and flexibility to respond to the most urgent needs of the School. Alternatively you may wish to leave a gift specifically to the Bursary Fund. For further information about leaving a gift in your will click here.

Cheadle Hulme School is most grateful to all Old Waconians leaving a gift in their will to the School. The 1855 Society was set up in honour of those who have left a legacy to the School and to recognise those Old Waconians who are leaving a gift in their will. If you decide to leave a gift in your will to the School, we would be grateful if you could inform us about this in order to invite you to join 1855 Society.
