Our Annual Fund
Together we make a difference
Our programme of extra-curricular activities of sport, clubs and societies has always been an important element of school life and fundamental to the development of our young people. Now more than ever we need the support of everyone to make sure that we can keep offering and extend these opportunities to all our pupils.
Government funding provides the school with the resources for day-to-day teaching and learning. It does not contribute towards the wide range of out-of-the-classroom activities we provide. Whether it is an after school club, a local sporting tournament, a regional competition or a national quiz, we need to cover all the costs ourselves.
We are able to offer help with uniform, home to school travel and school trips through the generosity of former pupils. In these difficult times I am reinforcing my appeal to parents to join me in donating to our Annual Fund Programme to provide the numerous opportunities for development outside-of-the-classroom. I hope that we can come together as a community to support each other so that all pupils have the same opportunities to take part in a wonderful range of activities for free.
“There’s such a wide range of activities to get involved with here, it’s safe to say there is something for everyone! We need to make sure they remain available. It’s what makes the school so special.” (Upper Sixth student)
How you can help
I am asking every single parent who possibly can to consider making a donation to the school at whatever giving level you feel is comfortable for you. Each gift, regardless of its size, gives all pupils the opportunity to excel, dream, create, explore, and lead.
The majority of parents make a regular donation through direct debit. This is the most efficient way to donate. It spreads the cost of your donation over the years and allows the school a regular income stream.
If you can help us, you can donate by downloading the donation form below and either post the completed form to the Development Office using the Freepost address on the form or scan and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please complete the form as soon as possible so that your donation can be set up in time for next term. If you are a UK tax payer, please make sure you tick the Gift Aid declaration box to allow us to collect an extra 25% from the government at no cost to you.
Thank you so much.

"The Annual Fund helps LRGS pupils to broaden their aspirations, skills and range of interests beyond the
classroom. It helps them to develop physically, socially and emotionally so that they can grow in self-confidence and maturity.
Every donation makes a difference, particularly now when so many families are being affected by the difficulties of the current situation."
