    My buddy is writing a short film about class division and here's the scenario:

    There's a mum with five kids, and they're a pretty poor family. Her dad dies, but they fell out so instead of leaving her money, he pays for all the kids to go to private school. So is there a way that he could have that money go directly to a school and for the mum to not be able to access it? Because that's kind of what the whole film hinges on.

    And I get none of you are lawyers or will experts so you might not know, but if you know of another website that could help me out please direct me to it!

    Completely possible, depending on the school policy. Prepayment of school fees means that the money is exempt from certain taxes and often schools offer a discount for paying in advance. I've linked a couple of examples below.
