Virtual Installation Dinner
The Guild of Mercers’ Scholars is a voluntarily-run Guild in the City of London, made up from alumni and associates of the Mercers’ Company’s cluster of schools. Amongst its principal objectives is enabling its members to become Liverymen of City Companies.
By engaging with pupils and former pupils of the Mercers’ Cluster of schools, the Guild of Mercers’ Scholars aims to demonstrate and promote helpful reciprocal communication, outreach and recognition with the Worshipful Company of Mercers and amongst all members and partners.
"To encourage former pupils of Mercers’ Foundation and Associated Schools and others to become Freemen and Liverymen"
It is the policy of the Guild to treat candidates and Guild members fairly, taking account of race, religion or belief, sex, gender reassignment status, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, sexual orientation, disability, or age. We are committed to ensuring our Guild is inclusive and all its members promote:
The Guild is arranged along the lines of a Livery Company, and so is run by an elected Court, consisting of a Guild Master, Renter Warden, Junior Warden, an Honorary Clerk and Honorary Treasurer and additional Assistants as deemed necessary. The Court meets four times a year within 21 days of each quarter day, Lady Day, Mid Summer Day, Michaelmas Day and Christmas Day.
The Guild Master and Wardens are advised by Guild Assistants who are Past Guild Masters, one Guildman representing each of the Foundation and Associated Schools and Court Assistants who are Guildmen progressing through the Court in order of precedence.
