Community and Partnerships
Bursary provision, partnership work, and supporting the community are key strands in the School’s Mission Statement: Learn, Lead, and Make a Difference.
The principals date back to our founders’ charitable intentions for the School and we aim to engage all the young people we teach with the important concepts of service and giving.
2020 clearly demonstrated the extent to which the School’s Mission is embedded in the Freemen’s community; when everyone – students, staff, parents and alumni, came together to Make a Difference. For example,
- Bridging Courses created for our U5 (Year 11) and U6 (Year 13) students were shared with hundreds of pupils in our local partner schools and other schools in the City of London family.
- Our DT department created and distributed over 1400 face shields and 500 ear savers to local hospitals, medical centres and care homes.
- One of our pupils in U5 set up Cakes 4 Key Workers, initially to provide cakes for staff at St George’s Hospital. Within a couple of months, the student had organised the production and distribution of 1200 cakes baked by 20 Freemen’s families. The cakes were given to staff at four hospitals, along with local GP surgeries and Care Homes.
The following report provides a sample of the community and partnerships projects undertaken during 2021:
