Governance and Merchant Taylors' Company

The Worshipful Company of Merchant Taylors of the Fraternity of St John Baptist in the City of London (the Company) founded the school in 1561 and the Merchant Taylors’ Educational Trust continues to be responsible to the Court of the Company for ensuring the due governance of Merchant Taylors’ School. The Governing Body consists of representatives of the Company, figures from the world of education, the professions, business and the local community and the Chairman of the Old Merchant Taylors’ Society. In addition, the Head Master, the Head of Merchant Taylors’ Prep School, the Bursar, some other members of the Senior Leadership Team and a representative of the Senior Common Room attend meetings. Close links between the Merchant Taylors’ Company and the School have helped the school prosper for over 450 years and it is our most earnest wish that they continue to do so.
