City Of London School War Memorial Fund
Who we are
The Fund is run by the John Carpenter Club, the Alumni Association of the City of London School and is the charitable vehicle through which we run the Asquith-City Bursary Scheme. The Scheme provides financial support for boys with the talent but without the means to attend our school.
Thanks to the generosity of a growing number of Old Citizens the JCC will soon be sponsoring three boys at the School. We currently have one boy in the second year and one in the fifth and have confirmed to the Headmaster that we have sufficient funds to sponsor a third one from September 2010. He has asked us to support one of the boys already at the school, a talented sportsman currently in the fifth form who for financial reasons would otherwise not be able to continue into the sixth.
Our two existing boys are doing well. The Form Tutor for the boy in the second year says in his December 2010 Report that "he has shown so far during his time at CLS that he is capable of very high quality work." Of the fifth form boy his Head of Year said: "I am delighted to read about another excellent term for [him]. I suggest he sets himself the target of having his name read out at the next Prize Day at least once. The mocks should be a good goalpost for [him] to measure his progress towards a perfect haul of only starred results. Good luck." Praise indeed, and the sort of reports some of us could only dream about!
The scheme helps to make CLS a uniquely diverse and special school and contributing to a Bursary is one of the most valuable ways we OCs can give something back - especially if you were in receipt of a Scholarship or Bursary yourself. For every pound you give we now get an additional 25 pence from the Gift Aid tax credit and the Headmaster then finds Matching Funds to take your £1 up to £2.50. Please help us raise funds to sponsor a fourth boy at our school.
