Annual Fund

The Royal Latin School exists today largely thanks to the foresight, generosity and innovativeness of its community. Our funding challenge is significant – in fact we are the worst-funded secondary school in England. Like many other grammar schools, we are campaigning hard for urgent revisions to the funding formulae at both a national and local level. It is important that this year, more than ever, we work hard to enable parents, alumni and the local community to support us, so that we can continue to deliver an outstanding education for our students.

One way you can show your support is by making voluntary donations to our Annual Fund, which makes a vital contribution towards the running of the school. As a registered charity, we can claim Gift Aid on all eligible donations, meaning that your gift has an even greater impact on school life.

You can find out more about the Annual Fund in a letter from the Headteacher below, which includes a donation form for you to complete and return if you wish to sign up.
