Leave a lasting impact
Almost 600 years ago, John Carpenter's bequest led to the foundation of our School. He wanted his legacy to provide broader access to an eductaion that challenged conceived norms and celebrated diverse perspectives. This tradition continues through our commitment to a far larger programme of bursaries, we will continue to fulfil this ambition with the support of our legacy donors.
By leaving a legacy gift to City of London School you are providing vital support to future generations. You can leave a legacy for City of London School to invest wherever our need is greatest or specify a project or passion such as bursaries, the performing arts or sport. Legacies are extremely important to the School and we are very grateful for every bequest we receive, whatever its value.
