London's leading fully co-ed school
Defining what makes Latymer Upper School such a special place of learning is not easy. As London's leading fully co-educational school, with 1,200 boys and girls (aged from 11-18) of very individual characters, Latymer is very definitely not a 'one size fits all' school. ‘Modern’, ‘traditional’, ‘academic’, ‘caring’, ‘ambitious’ and ‘grounded’ are some of the words most commonly used to describe the School. Latymer is indeed all of these things and more, focussing as it does on both the academic achievement and the personal development of each and every pupil into well-rounded and caring citizens of the future.
Part of the School's strength and lasting identity is due to the enduring observation of Latymer Upper's original ethos, which continues to shape all those who study at the site on King Street in Hammersmith. The story of the 17th century lawyer Edward Latymer bestowing part of his great wealth on a grant to educate 'eight poor boies' from Hammersmith has almost mythical status at the School and is celebrated every year on Founder's Day. For more information on our history, see The Latymer Foundation.
The Latymer Upper School Annual Review throws further light on our School's remarkable character, alongside reports on our financial and fundraising achievements and aspirations. The inaugural review features five Latymerians 'In Conversation' reflecting on how a Latymer education has influenced and affected their lives.
