Worshipful Company of Carmen

scite, cito, certe — skilfully, swiftly, surely
The Three Rs

Recognition, reward and responsibility mark the Company’s reach in the world of education.

Carmen’s charity sends children to Christ’s Hospital – a school they have helped to fund since the sixteenth century (pdf).

Through the system of donation governorship, a pupil is chosen whose family cannot afford to buy the education their child has earned and deserves. The Carmen's Benevolent Trust makes a substantial contribution to that child’s schooling for up to seven years – and provides prizes for others to win.

In 2017 three children are attending Christ’s Hospital, thanks to Carman benevolence and they proudly wear their Carman badge.

The Company also gives sixth formers at King Edward School Witley the chance to stay at school and study  for A levels and university entrance. Three youngsters are there today.

In addition, it funds bursaries and prizes at the City of London Freemen’s School and funds special equipment for children at Treloar School and College.

Through Carmen, gifted children learn and prosper.
