Legacy Projects

FSL line shape

To celebrate 250 years, we set a fundraising target of £250,000 to support two significant legacy projects. Both of these projects are designed to enhance our use of the wonderful grounds we enjoy and will help promote the physical and mental wellbeing of our pupils.

The Legacy Trail

Red Line shape

The Legacy Trail will encourage pupils to make the most of our outdoor spaces. This one-mile trail around the perimeter of our 20-acre site offers opportunities for activities, relaxation and moments of quiet reflection. Along the trail, information boards will delve into the school’s history, tell the story of some of our Old Scholars, and highlight areas of topographical and natural interest. There will be a link from the trail to the Preparatory Departments Guess How Much I Love You garden, based on the famous picture book by the late Sam McBratney, who was an Old Scholar at Friends’. The garden will inspire and capture the imagination of our younger pupils.

Outdoor Performance Space

news shape

Designed by the award-winning Studio Idir, a practice set up by Old Scholar Aisling Rusk, this striking piece of architecture set in the trees at the front of school will provide a unique space for the school community. As well as serving as an open-air venue for pupils to showcase their musical and creative talents, it will provide a space for recreation and outdoor learning.
