RGS: Changing Lives since 1675...

Our Vision

#

Our vision is to be able to offer any child a place at RGS no matter their background.

 

Through the Changing Lives campaign we seek support to provide first class educational opportunities for children whose potential is far greater than their financial means…

The aim of this dedicated fund is to produce sufficient income to support a wider range of deserving pupils through immediate bursarial support addressing the issue of Social Mobility in the local area.

Child poverty, disadvantage and social mobility is at the heart of our moral compass as we endeavour to break the link between demography and destiny.

Inspired by the philosophy of our founders, we recognise that such benefaction enriches our school, enhances academic standards, is socially inclusive, and widens educational opportunity.

Testimonials...

RGS gave me the superb education my parents could not have afforded. I’ve never forgotten that... So I decided to give a bursary to a first year student and I hope it gives her some of the opportunities RGS gave to me.

Andrew Sullivan (RGS 1974–1981)

The lessons learned in those RGS years were certainly formative in terms of teamwork, resilience and lifelong learning.

Iain McLean (RGS 1971–1974)

Maybe if I had not had the opportunities and encouragement from RGS my life would have followed another path. Those days seem many miles away now but I will never forget my five happy years there.

Laurie Reed (RGS 1948–1953)
