Founded in 1552 by Edward VI, who is depicted on the buttons. Christ’s Hospital is a charitable foundation with many idiosyncratic public schools tradition, especially with it’s traditional uniform that iremains unchanged after 400 years. It consists of a long blue, yellow socks, knee breaches and a white band at the neck. The buttons depict the school founders and are still used used today on the cuffs of the long coat. Christ’s Hospital is almost unique for a British independent school in that the majority of the students receive bursaries. This stems from its founding charter as a charitable school. School fees are paid on a means-tested basis, with substantial subsidies paid by the school or their benefactors, so that pupils from all walks of life are able to have private education that would otherwise be beyond the means of their parents.
