The 1876 Fund - 145 Heritage Sculpture

Designer Umut Yamac (OL 1998) installed the bench that was unveiled on Values Day earlier this month which concluded the 145 anniversary celebrations.

This Art project, like many projects before, has been fully supported by the 1876 Fund, which was established to celebrate our history and enhance the educational experience beyond the curriculum for the benefit of our pupils. The 1876 Fund combines regular donations from parents, Old Lyonians, staff and governors, all of which have played a necessary part in enabling the school to complete various projects over the last five years. To continue doing this for the future, we need new donors to join the 1876 Fund so that we ensure it keeps growing and providing pupils with ongoing opportunities for new learning experiences at school.

How can you get involved?

We would like to ask you for a modest regular contribution – collectively these contributions make a great deal of difference in providing the additional support the school has benefitted from since its establishment in 1876. Through the extraordinary generosity of John and Joan Lyon, as well as various other benefactors over time, the school stands today stronger than ever. We hope and expect this philanthropic tradition to continue bolstering the school as it keeps going from strength to strength.

Giving to the 1876 Fund is an opportunity for you to get involved at whatever level you can afford. As a guide, a typical contribution is £18.76 per month but it is really about the spirit of participation rather than the amount. We are extremely grateful to have your support for the benefit of pupils to experience.

We are also offering the opportunity for donors to be recognised with the creation of the 145 Heritage Sculpture. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss further by emailing Khadija Ansari, Alumni Relations and Development Office:
