John Gardyner’s endowment in 1472 stated that the School was “to educate boys in grammar, freely”. His intentions still resonate today. Education at LRGS remains free. Our excellent InspirUS outreach programme, Lune Scholarship Bursary Fund and Opportunities Fund are just three ways in which we remain true to John Gardyner’s aim and help us to educate pupils irrespective of background or income. All three schemes are funded entirely through the generosity of others – by donations from former pupils, parents, staff and friends of the School.
Also thanks to your generosity we have been able to completely renovate the Assembly Hall providing a bright welcoming space for students, parents and visitors. Old School House dormitories have been transformed into attractive teaching areas for our Business and Economics students.
We have been successful in gaining funding through the government's Priority Schools Building Programme to provide a much needed extension to our science facilities as well as funds for further renovation of Old School House. Two new science labs were completed in September 2018 and work on Old School House is underway to create modernised teaching spaces and much improved Sixth form Facilities to increase the study space, provide additional classrooms and brand new catering facilities for September 2019. We will then be launching a fundraising campaign to help furnish and equip the classrooms as well as an ambitious plan to develop our sporting and fitness facilities helping us to further enhance the quality of education at LRGS.
Thank you so much to everyone who is supporting the school by donating to the various projects in our Development Programme. We are amazed by the generosity that we receive.
