The Drapers' Company is proud to be the lead sponsor of Drapers' Maylands Primary School and is one of the Twelve Great Livery Companies of the City of London. 

From its origins in the thirteenth century, the Company has developed an involvement with a wide range of charitable activities in general, and education and the relief of need, in particular. Over the last five hundred years, the Company has been involved in the foundation of numerous schools and places of learning across Britain and continues to provide financial and governor support to over twenty schools, colleges and universities. Its involvement in school governance contributes to strong educational performance in these establishments. 

There are approximately 700 members of the Drapers' Company from all walks of life and, as in the case of Drapers' Academy, individuals volunteer to help with the governance of schools and colleges.
