Writing your Will

We would be very grateful if you would consider including Stowe in your Will. Adding a bequest to either of the School's charities to an existing Will can be done by using the codicil form available to download below. Alternatively, should you wish to write a new Will, your solicitor will require the registered charity number of your chosen cause: 

Stowe School Foundation - Registered Charity Number 1071363

Stowe House Preservation Trust - Registered Charity Number 1066272

With regards to legal advice we are pleased to recommend the services of Old Stoic lawyer, Richard Clapham (Temple '99), who is a Partner and Private Client solicitor at the long-established firm Munro Wright & Wasbrough LLP in London. Richard specialises in Will and Trust drafting as well as Tax and Estate planning advice and would be happy to provide assistance and the necessary documentation. he has kindly agreed a discounted rate for Old Stoics. Please do not hesitate to contact him for an initial discussion.

Finally, although leaving a legacy is essentially a very private matter, it is an encouraging indication of support and is helpful information to us for planning purposes. Joining the Roxburgh Society will, in itself, let us know of your intentions in outline; if you felt willing to, we would be very grateful to know the scale of your bequest and the specific purpose that you would like it directed to. Please contact Hanah Al-Anazi, Roxburgh Society Manager to discuss your wishes in the strictest confidence.
