About Latymer Upper School
A rich heritage, bursting with ambition
We’ve been offering a rigorous and stimulating education to bright children for a long time. Nearly 400 years in fact.
As one of the leading co-educational day schools in the country, we continue to offer today’s pupils a life-changing education. Our school’s ethos of social inclusivity is as strong today as it was in 1624 when Edward Latymer, a prosperous lawyer, left part of his wealth for the clothing and education of “eight poore boyes” from Hammersmith.
Edward Latymer’s vision remains firmly at the heart of the School – although we now teach rather more than those original eight Hammersmith boys. The Latymer of today consists of a vibrant student body of 1,400 girls and boys from all walks of life.
