Inspiring Minds Launch 2018-19

September 14, 2018

Last night the Inspiring Minds campaign kicked off for the upcoming year in celebratory style. Over 140 guests attended a drinks and canapés reception to launch this year’s Bursaries Appeal for the Upper School and the Prep. 

Donors, Latymerians, parents and friends of Latymer packed the Main Hall in support of the campaign, the most ambitious ever undertaken by the Foundation Office.

Ros Sweeting, Chair of Governors, thanked the audience for their commitment to Inspiring Minds, at the heart of which is the School’s vision to enable children of ability to experience a Latymer education irrespective of their family’s financial status.

Andrea Rutterford, who took over as Principal of Latymer Prep last year, spoke of the School’s values of equality, opportunity and inclusivity which are reflected across all age groups. Today, Latymer offers bursaries to 175 students, nine of which are in the Prep.

The Head, David Goodhew, closed the speeches by presenting a video of just a few of the bursary students that have benefited from the generosity of donors.

Inspiring Minds aims to raise £40m by the 400th anniversary of the Latymer Foundation in 2024. With the support of the whole Latymer community, we can ensure that Edward Latymer’s original vision remains as strong today as it was in 1624.
