The Mercers’ Company has been involved in education for more than 500 years, since the foundation of St. Paul’s School in 1509. We aim to be a force for educational excellence for the benefit and future success of students from a wide range of social and economic backgrounds.
We achieve this by:
- Promoting best practice across the maintained and independent sectors through our Association of Schools and Colleges and our communities and networks.
- Enabling real improvements in the aspirations and achievements of children, particularly in London and the West Midlands, through our grants programmes and projects.
