Education Foundation

Explore what we offer for residents at Parson Latham's Charity

Our Educational Foundation seeks to support the further education of young people by awarding a grant to those who may be beginning an apprenticeship, vocational training or starting primary, secondary school or university/college.

This endeavour was a keen passion of Parson Nicholas Latham who established at least five schools for the children of the poor of his time.
