A charitable bequest is one of the most meaningful and enduring donations most people will ever make, and is a gift that almost everyone can make.
A bequest to the Latymer Foundation will be of direct benefit to the School and its pupils. Just as life at Latymer today is enhanced by previous generosity, so the School must ensure that there is equal provision for tomorrow’s pupils and that Latymer maintains its status as a leading independent school.
The School endeavours to provide facilities and resources that enhance the teaching and match the needs of its 21st century pupils whilst upholding its belief that that its pupils should continue to come from diverse backgrounds; to preserve this proud tradition Latymer needs to provide free places. This is the essence of Latymer. A bequest to the Latymer Foundation will both preserve and fortify the School for many generations to come.
Fee income provides for the day to day running of the School. Beyond this Latymer continues to benefit from the generosity of a committed network of alumni, current and former parents and staff and friends.
There are several of ways of supporting us; leaving a gift in your will is one of those ways.
The 1624 Society
The 1624 Society is named after Edward Latymer's visionary bequest of 1624 that created Latymer Upper School. The President of the Society is Professor Richard Perham (1955) who was, until recently, Chair of Governors of the Latymer Foundation. The Society is made up of Latymerians, current and former staff and parents who have informed the School of their legacy intentions. Their pledge is recognised in the Annual Report of Giving and they and their partners are invited to an annual event at the School in the summer term.
