The Public Schools Lodges Council

The Public School Lodges' Council (PSLC) was formed in 1909, when the Standing Committee of the Public School Lodges was founded by the Lodges of Westminster, Charterhouse, Cheltenham, Sherborne and Clifton to promote and disseminate Public School Freemasonry.

The title of Public School Lodges' Council was adopted in 1936. There are 38 Lodges represented on the Council (including a Lodge for Installed Masters), with Royal Arch Chapters associated with Charterhouse, Sherborne, Merchant Taylors' and Taunton. The Public Schools Royal Arch Chapter is attached to Westminster.

Each member school takes turns in hosting the PSLC Festival and The Old Cheltonian Lodge have hosted it on four occasions the most recently being in October 2021 when we welcomed over 100 masons and their guests to College for a most enjoyable day, and the return of some form of normality given the COVID pandemic.

The Council has funds at its disposal for Benevolent and Scholarship purposes. During the past five years, approximately £15K has been distributed for charitable purposes.
