Lytham Schools Foundation

For over 300 years there have been organisations & individuals within Lytham St Annes that have supported young people in education. The Lytham Schools Foundation has a history going back to the 1700’s and is proud to continue this history through the 21st century.

Our objectives:
As defined in our charity status, “The objects of the charity are for the public benefit to advance education in or near Lytham St Annes including by, but not limited to, the provision of land, buildings and other facilities for the purposes of a school or schools and the provision of means tested bursaries and other financial awards to children and young people residing in or near Lytham St Annes in need of financial assistance for the purpose of assisting with the cost of their education (including extra-curricular activities undertaken for educational purposes).”
