THE PALMER SOCIETY
The generosity of Old Seniors, former teachers and parents has made Downe House a truly wonderful place to be. Many gifts have come in the form of legacies to the School, which have allowed us to improve the School site, build new facilities and fund bursaries for bright girls to receive an exceptional education.
It is important to remember that the whole School is itself a remarkable gift – a legacy from Olive Willis, who set out to create a school that would be different. She held the strong belief that a school should meet the needs of young women by valuing and prizing individuals and engendering a strong sense of excellence, excitement and enthusiasm for the world around them.
Our alumnae and parents have such happy memories of Downe House and still feel a strong connection and sense of belonging to the School, however not all can afford to give to Downe House during their lifetime. A gift in your Will allows you to continue that connection long into the future, protecting the School you love, and providing another young woman the opportunity of benefiting from a Downe House education.For more information on legacies and how to pledge to Downe House in your will, please contact
