Dear Old Latin,
These are unprecedented and challenging times for us all, and perhaps a time to reflect on what’s most important to us. My own reflections have led me to realise that at this time, our old school needs our support more than ever, and that if we each do a little, we can come together as Old Latins more powerfully than ever before to help the school build a strong foundation for the future.
By supporting the school with a monthly gift, you can help to inspire future generations of Latins to grow and express themselves through sport and the arts. In celebration of Founders’ Day on 26th June, I appeal to you to sign up to the Latin Inspires gift scheme, and in so doing, join a passionate community of Old Latins from around the world and across the generations, all helping to build a brighter future for Royal Latin pupils.
Your gift will help to:
…Build a light, bright and welcoming sports building, designed to encourage everyone to be more active
…Create a fantastic theatre, music and arts facility at the heart of the school
…Give pupils the space and tools to gain the confidence, resilience and expressive skills they need in order to thrive
With your help, we can start building the Sports building this summer, and to start the Arts Centre before the end of our 600th anniversary year in 2023. These projects will have a significant and lasting impact on every student passing through the Royal Latin. Your gift will help us to enable young people to express themselves and acquire knowledge and skills which will not only enrich their time at school, but will also remain with them for life. I think that’s an incredibly powerful gift. You can donate any monthly amount, small or large! As a registered charity, the school can also claim Gift Aid on your donations; anything you can spare will be very gratefully received by the school.
Thank you, for taking the time to consider joining our efforts to build a bright future at The Royal Latin. Stay well, and I look forward to being able to welcome you back to an alumni event at the school as soon as we are able to do so.
With very best wishes to you and your loved ones,
Denise Griffiths – Class of 1980
600 Campaign Board Co-Chair
To confirm your gift to Latin Inspires, please use our online donations checkout at the top right of this page.

Gift Aid is also claimed automatically from HMRC through this process which is quicker and easier for us. If you would prefer, you can instead download, print and return the paper form.
Student wellbeing is at the forefront of our minds and the Sports Campus will enable us to provide our young people with the facilities that will help them to achieve a healthy balance in their lives. A new 3G pitch and sports performance building containing a fitness suite and mind and body zone will give students more opportunities to try new activities, encourage them to be more active, and enable them to understand the vital importance of maintaining an active lifestyle.
We have an established reputation as a school which nurtures the artistic talents of students, despite cramped, outdated facilities. It is time to do our emerging young artists and artistes justice, and create a multi-use arts, theatre and music facility right at the heart of the school site. The Arts Centre will give all students more opportunities to grow in confidence by embracing creativity, and sharing their work with the school community and beyond.
