Latymer’s HISTORY

Latymer Upper School was created by a generous act of charity. Writing his Will in 1624 a wealthy lawyer named Edward Latymer left part of his wealth for the clothing and education of “eight poore boyes” from Hammersmith.

In keeping with the inclusive vision of its founder, Latymer Upper continues to offer such opportunities to London children - now girls as well as boys - by giving a number of means-tested bursaries to bright pupils every year based on the twin criteria of academic merit and family financial circumstances.

Purpose of the Foundation

The Latymer Foundation at Hammersmith exists to provide an academic education of the highest quality to pupils of ability, regardless of background. The Governors, in their commitment to equality of opportunity, provide bursaries to make this possible. 

The Latymer Foundation is a charitable trust (registered No. 312714) and the School has had considerable success in recent years in raising funds for additional means tested bursaries. Detailed information about the number of current award holders may be found in the Gvernors’ Report section of the Annual Report and Accounts.


Fundraising for means tested bursaries is one of the prime functions of The Foundation, and all members of the Latymer community, past and present, are invited to support The Foundation in its aims. For further information on bursaries, giving and support, please visit the Foundation website.
