Breaking Even

The mythology surrounding the wealth of St John's is less prevalent than in previous decades, but it still pervades the collective consciousness of our community and beyond.

St John's finances are stable and broadly sustainable, but do not provide the necessary surplus to fund the new programmes we are proposing in this campaign.

'One of the most enduring myths about St John's wealth involves how far you can travel on its land. Cambridge to Oxford seems to be a favourite. Unfortunately, you wouldn't get that far. With a couple of major leaps over gaps en route, you could get from the Great Gate to just short of the M11 on College land.'
