RGS: Changing Lives since 1675...

Overseas Friends of RGS


The Reigatian Community continues to spread further and wider around the globe.

From New York to New Zealand, there are members of the community in most continents either working, with their families or enjoying a well-earned retirement.

With this in mind, we are delighted to have appointed global RGS Overseas Ambassadors who are the point of contact for anyone wanting to join up with the existing established Reigatians in these far reaches. If you are living, travelling through or visiting any of these territories please email us so that we can put you in touch with your local ambassador: foundation@reigategrammar.org
