United Westminster Schools’ Foundation

RPS Corporate Member

The United Westminster Schools’ Foundation is an educational charity (309267). It originates from the union in 1873 of four ancient foundations: Emanuel Hospital, founded in 1594 by Lady Dacre; St. Margaret’s Hospital founded in 1633 by King Charles 1; Palmer’s School, founded by the Rev James Palmer in 1650; and Hill’s Grammar School, founded by Emery Hill in 1708.

The Trust's objective is “the provision and conduct of three schools in which the religious instruction is in accordance with the principles of the Christian faith”.

Susan Bullock, Soprano: The work of the RPS is tireless and thanks to the Society, so many people have come to learn about, perform and understand music to the highest level.


In 2002 the Society sold its historic archive of papers, letters and musical manuscripts to the British Library, where it is now open to the public from all over the world.
