Supporting Education

I have a strong commitment towards education as I believe this is the single most important investment we can make in young people and therefore the long term future of London and the UK.

I am a governor of the City of London School and I was appointed Chairman in 2018.

The City of London School aims to welcome talented boys from a diversity of backgrounds into a tolerant, harmonious community in which they achieve the highest academic standards, make full use of their potential, and develop towards responsible adulthood.

Further details of the school can be found by going to the City of London School website.


I also sat on the Development Committee of Oriel College, Oxford University for some 12 years where I am a donor and support the fund raising efforts to supporting students and teaching at Oxford University. Oriel has a fundraising target of £75m by 2026.

Further details of the 2026 Campaign can be found following this link.
