It is and shall be the mission of Christ’s Hospital to:
offer to boys and girls of suitable age an education of such breadth and excellence as will fit them pre-eminently for work and service in society in their generation; and in particular to enable them to compete confidently with their peers for opportunities in further education and careers;
develop first the skills, learning habits, independence of mind and spiritual awareness that will enable and motivate them to continue to educate themselves throughout their lives; and second, a high sense of responsibility towards themselves, their families, their associates and to society at large, such as to form a permanent foundation of their training and character;
present to its pupils the Christian faith in all its mystery and splendour;
have regard especially to children of families in social, financial or other need, in the choice of pupils; and
maintain and further the close connection between the Foundation and the City of London so successfully nurtured since 1552.
Christ’s Hospital is a Christian institution dedicated to providing a stable background and boarding education of high standard to boys and girls, having regard especially to children of those families in social, financial or other need.
The assets and endowments of Christ’s Hospital are managed to ensure that this prime purpose is maintained for the benefit of both present and future generations.
