Our 600th Anniversary

Founded in 1423, in 2023 the Royal Latin celebrated its 600th anniversary.

As the 100th oldest surviving school in the world, and one steeped in history, we wanted to reflect on those fantastic stories, and how the Royal Latin has been the launchpad for thousands of ‘Latins’ who have gone onto shape the world. We wanted to use the 600th anniversary to bring together as many of the RLS community as possible, past and present, to reminisce, record and celebrate everything the school, its pupils, its staff, its supporters, have achieved together over six fascinating centuries.

We also used this historic moment in time to launch a pledge for the future – how we wanted the Royal Latin School to carry itself forward into its next 600 years of history. Details of the Royal Latin 2023 Charter can be found below.
