Support Us

The support and engagement of all our community is central to the role the RGS can play in transforming the lives of young bright local boys. Thank you to all those who have already donated to the campaign; all funds raised sponsor the education of RGS boys who would otherwise not be able to attend the school.

The Headmaster’s Vision

In 2016 I stated my ambition that RGS achieve full merit-based open access within a generation; to be a school where every bright boy who earns his place can take it up, irrespective of his financial circumstances. It is a bold aspiration, and we are one of only a handful of this country’s independent schools to have set such a goal.”

Dr Jon Cox, Headmaster

The Journey so Far

Six years ago we created the Pass it On campaign, to concentrate our work in raising funds for bursary places and in widening access to local primary schools. Nearly 40% of our boys now come from state primary schools

In June 2021, you helped us to reach our first milestone with the successful completion of our Twenty for 2020 Bursary Campaign. Together, you have created 20 new transformational bursary places and set us firmly on the road to our long-term ambition.

Read our latest Supporters’ Review to understand more about the difference a gift to the Bursary Campaign could make.

We still have a long way to go to reach our goal of full-merit based access. We are about to launch the next phase – the Road to 2035 – our vision to create an endowment fund for the RGS that will allow our bursary programme to become financially secure and support boys in perpetuity. This campaign will be based on both major gifts and committed regular giving.

Thank you to all those that support us.
