Our Successes

A long tradition of charitable support

St Paul’s has a rich history of philanthropy, starting with John Colet‘s generous endowment that founded the school. Since then, additional philanthropic contributions have supported St Paul’s for generations.

Throughout the years, various campaigns have been launched to raise funds for different projects at the school. One such campaign in 1968 raised enough funds to relocate to Barnes, while another one in 1989 helped finance the construction of a new technology and art block. Additionally, the central court was enclosed to create an atrium. More recently, the Renewal Campaign raised an impressive ÂŁ65 million, which was used to provide our pupils with the best facilities possible. Generous donations to the Junior Sports Pavilion also helped to ensure that our students can enjoy state-of-the-art sports amenities. The ÂŁ20 million raised during the Shaping Our Future campaign has allowed us to take our bursary programme to the next level and pilot many of our partnership projects.

These transformational results have helped us to attract and retain the very best pupils and teachers and to provide an inspirational environment of world-class teaching and learning.

In this next phase, we aim to further develop our bursary provision and significantly expand our partnership efforts – ensuring our impact beyond the confines of our own school. However, we cannot achieve these goals without the support of our community. Your individual and collective generosity can make a tremendous difference. We invite you to join us in , and together, we can use the gift of education to transform the lives of many young people.

Old Paulines of all ages tell me that bursary provision and partnership with state schools would have been part of John Colet's vision in the 21st Century.

Impassioned to hear Professor Mark Bailey's speech in the Crypt at St Paul's Cathedral in support of the Shaping Our Future campaign. Wishing the Widening Access scheme all the best and looking forward to partaking in the 1509 Society.

The importance of allowing boys, who would otherwise not get the chance, to a world class education cannot be understated. I hope that the bursary fund continues to gain the support it deserves.

I hope my small contribution reflects my wish to continue and widen John Colet's vision. Also, as a thank you for my days at the school (1950-55, High House and H Club). Good luck with the fund!
