Lichfield Cathedral School has enjoyed remarkable growth since its re-founding in 1942. However, the need for philanthropic support is now greater than ever.

Through charitable giving we must ensure that the very high standards of our school are continually developed so that we can provide the environment, opportunity and inspiration for boys and girls, regardless of parental financial circumstances, to become confident, independent and well-rounded young people.

While fees pay for the direct cost of education, the school also needs to continue augmenting funds both for bursaries and for further building developments.

The school has established the Lichfield Cathedral School Foundation to raise additional funds. The School has no endowed funds to draw on to help it maintain the ethos of opportunity that is part of its history. Many pupils would not have been able to attend the school without the generous financial support of individuals and other parents.

The Foundation relies on financial support from parents, former pupils and friends of the school to carry out its important work. 2017 marks the School’s 75th Anniversary Year and the launch of our five year campaign to raise £1 million for the Foundation by 2022.

If you would like more information on current fundraising priorities or how to make a gift please contact our Bursar, David Brown, on 01543 306172.
