Make a lasting impact on young people in two inner London communities

Our Vision: Through an exceptional Central Foundation education, every student learns, develops, and grows so they can reach their full potential.

Central Foundation Schools of London (CFSL) is a charitable foundation which supports two amazing voluntary aided Schools based in the East End of London – Central Foundation Boys’ School in Islington and the Girls’ School in Tower Hamlets. Between them the two schools support over 2,500 young people from highly diverse communities and backgrounds.

The Foundation has just completed a major building redevelopment project with the Boys' School and is about to start a programme to extend the Sixth Form facilities and provision at the Girls' School. Beyond that the Foundation has just embarked on its first 3-year strategy which aims to leverage our skills, funding and influence to collaborate with our schools  to strengthen their education provision and outcomes. We receive income from our permanent endowments and investments and are exploring how we can widen the funding and support available to the students at our two schools. 

The Foundation are seeking four new Board members to serve for an initial term of four years. We are particularly keen that one of the appointments is a Board member with a strong background in finance who would also serve as a member of our Finance & Audit Committee. We'd also love to hear from people with experience at a senior leadership in the secondary education sector or in education policy. 

Having just appointed our first chief executive and agreed our first three year strategy, the Foundation is looking carefully at how it best serves the students at its two beneficiary schools who come from two inner London communities which often face significant challenges. We are seeking new trustees passionate about creating a better future for young people and willing to engage their time and skills to do so. 

The Foundation Board meets in person quarterly at one of our schools, and has an annual away day. As well as being members of the Board, trustees are asked to join one of the sub-committees or project groups - these meetings are usually hybrid with one in-person meeting each year.

The Closing Date for expressions of interest is Monday 22 April at 10am.
