PARENTAL SUPPORT GROUPS & ALUMNI
RGS is proud to receive the support of an active parental and local community, who organise a range of events.
At RGS our pupils will find a body of support to help them succeed within their chosen field. Donating to a discipline close to your heart be it sports, science or the arts, will ensure that we can continue to offer these facilities to our pupils in the future.
We are delighted to be supported by many parental groups.
The Parents' Association (RGSPA)
The Parents Association raises funds for smaller school projects such as water fountains and minibus leases. They raise funds through exciting events and we encourage you to take part in this lively core community group.
The Old Wycombiensians Club
The RGS Old Boys come together socially, but also to raise money for projects around the school. They are currently fundraising for the renovation of science laboratories and match fund what they raise via grant-making Trusts and Foundations.
If your child has a particular sporting or musical interest it is likely that you will have joined one of the activity-based parental fundraising groups:
- Friends of Rugby (FRORGS)
- Friends of Rowing (REPTILES)
- Friends of Cricket (FRGSC)
- Friends of Hockey (FoH)
- Friends of Music (FoM)
These groups have their own committees and funding preferences. They hold events but also ask for subscriptions that entitle a family membership of that particular group. The funds raised pay for school equipment, tours, training and other valuable items that would otherwise be unavailable to the boys.
If your son becomes involved in any of these activities, the group will have a parental representative for each year group.
