Mansion House Event
On 16 November, Manuela, a GR (Year 13) student and monitor (prefect) from Christ’s Hospital had the great honour of addressing the new Lord Mayor of the City of London, Michael Mainelli, at Mansion House, for the launch of his mayoral year.
Manuela started by speaking about Christ’s Hospital, one of Mr Mainelli’s personal chosen causes. She moved on to talk about the new scholarship programme being introduced in partnership with the Lord Mayor of London, to mark the 350th anniversary of the Royal Mathematical School at Christ’s Hospital.
The Lord Mayor’s RMS Scholarship programme will enable young people from less advantaged backgrounds to have a transformative educational experience at Christ’s Hospital and equip them to navigate an increasingly complex world.
The RMS was established at Christ’s Hospital by King Charles II in 1673 to prepare students with the skills to navigate the world. 350 years later, the spirit of the RMS continues to inspire students for future success. While the 350th anniversary marks the notable history of the RMS, it also provides an opportunity to create a lasting legacy.
The scholarships will run in perpetuity, providing a fitting legacy for the RMS and a way for sponsors to have a lasting impact on social mobility for generations to come.
