Not sure where to start?


The Sir Thomas White Lodge and Chapter were founded for all who are either Old Merchant Taylors’ or governors or staff of Merchant Taylors’ School, Northwood, present and past. Membership has also been expanded to include fathers of current and former students.

The Lodge is part of the Public School Lodges’ Council; a forum for the private lodges of many of England’s great public schools.

We welcome enquiries from anyone interested in finding out more about Freemasonry. Also, those who are already Freemasons are warmly welcomed to join us; especially those from PSLC Lodges or Old Merchant Taylors’ from other Lodges – just ask!
