Public Sculpture

A new public sculpture to commemorate Christ’s Hospital’s 350 years presence in the City of London (1552 – 1902) was unveiled by Sir Alan Yarrow, former Lord Mayor, on Monday, 6 November 2017.

Working with the Corporation of London and the Bank of America Merrill Lynch, whose offices now occupy a large part of the School’s original site, the idea for a permanent presence in the City has now come to fruition. When you next visit the City, please do take a look – details about the sculpture and where it is located are in the attached leaflet (Click on the icon on the left).
