I have enjoyed a first rate education at an establishment I never could have hoped to attend without the means tested scholarship system offered by the school. In accepting me into the school, Latymer has encouraged me to believe in my own academic capability and to strive for the utmost that I could possibly achieve.Bursary recipient, Class of 2010
In 1624, Edward Latymer, a wealthy lawyer and man of property, bequeathed part of his wealth for the clothing and education of “eight poore boyes” from Hammersmith. Almost 400 years later, the Latymer Foundation still holds to its founder’s vision, providing young people with a life-changing education.
Latymer Upper School has a tradition of bringing together talented students from a wide range of backgrounds in the pursuit of excellence. We seek to offer them first class teaching, a rounded education and high quality facilities. This is very much evident in our Annual Review which highlights the remarkable character of our School alongside our financial and fundraising achievements and aspirations.
Latymer is rich in history but does not own a large endowment, as shown in our most recent Annual Report and Accounts. Prudent financial management, judicious loans and the generosity of the Latymer community made possible a transformation of the School site over recent years and helped to establish the bursary programme. However, to fulfil their vision of Latymer as the leading co-educational school in the country, the Governors must turn to the Latymer community for help.
Hear how our Bursary Scheme has delivered a life-changing education to bright students, regardless of their financial backgrounds, supporting our long tradition of social inclusivity and academic excellence.
