Impact Statement

City of London Freemen's staff and pupils work in partnership with the local community as well as other City of London schools, in a variety of ways including:

- Visit by local state infant school pupils to watch a special performance of a year 6 play

- Working with a local state primary school to help raise standard of teaching MFL, via lesson observations and delivering an INSET to staff on teaching French in KS2. 

- The School has set up a community leadership activity for students to encourage them to devise their own volunteering programme

- Partner with a state secondary school for the provision of Combined Cadet Force

- Drama department collaborated to support the City Schools’ Concert

- Sixth form pupils from Freemen’s and a state secondary school worked together in a three hour drama workshop

- Host an annual event for potential medics from three state secondary schools to practice interview techniques

- Senior Brass musicians have performed at a local hospice

- Rugby master ran a Rugby Sevens event with the Harlequins development staff for five local state secondary schools

- Hosted a Model United Nations Conference involving 25 pupils from a local state secondary school

- 30 pupils from a local state infant school visit three times a year for an hour's lesson taught by Freemen's staff

- A group of sixth form pupils volunteer to support teaching staff in two local state primary schools as classroom assistants for 2 hours per week

- 2 local state primary schools use Freemen's indoor swimming pool for junior swimming lessons (affording us the opportunity to help them to deliver a compulsory component of the national curriculum)

- The Maths department works on an ongoing basis with a local state secondary school to help prepare students for Maths entrance exams at the top universities

- Every year, the City of London Freemen’s School runs a Careers, Education and Gap Convention (CEG), giving pupils from the School and the local area the opportunity to access our visiting exhibitors and attend presentations on the application process from the University of Bath.  Over 150 state school pupils attended the event in November 2019.

- The careers department supports local state school pupils in offering mock Oxbridge interviews, on an annual basis

One of the biggest changes in our approach to and strategy in Community and Partnerships has been to start up the Counterpoint Programme with Professor Sonia Blandford and Achievement for All. Not only does the programme give gravitas to partnerships with local state schools, it also enhances our offering for our own students and allows us to track students and measure data.


City of London Freemen's School is committed to providing academically able students, whose parents may not otherwise be able to afford the full cost of fees, the opportunity to attend the School.  Bursaries of up to 100% of the fees are available to pupils entering Years 3 (7+), 7 (11+), 9 (13+) and 12 (16+). Bursaries are awarded based on performance in the entrance examinations and are subject to financial means-testing and annual review.

Subject to availability, and a financial means-tested assessment, Freemen's has some limited short-term bursarial funding to assist current parents who have had an unforeseen change in their financial situation.


Freemen's Scholarships are awarded in recognition of excellence, achievement and potential in academic study or music. Academic and Music awards are offered on entry to Year 7 (11+), Year 9 (13+) and Year 12 (16+). They are available to both external candidates and to current Freemen's pupils.

As a 'Women in STEM' initiative, Freemen's School also offers a scholarship for females studying Mathematics.  Female pupils applying for entry into the Sixth Form to study Mathematics with a view to studying Mathematics or related disciplines at university are eligible.  Further conditions apply, please see website for more details.

Pupils in receipt of an Academic Scholarship will be offered a specific programme that recognises their ability and will challenge them to broaden their educational horizons and develop their critical thinking skills. The programme will include talks and discussions on complex and challenging issues, , educational visits designed to broaden the pupil's cultural experience, and access to a range of Senior school clubs and societies
