RGS Guildford was founded in 1509 as a ‘free schole’ for the benefit of bright local boys without means. Between 1945 and 1977, RGS was part of the state-maintained grammar school system when all boys attended for free. These integral parts of RGS history have helped to shape who we are as a school, guiding our values and informing our ambitions for merit-based open access.
Inspired by the Headmaster’s vision for the future, we are focusing our fundraising endeavours on increasing opportunity for bright local boys through the RGS Bursary Programme.
To succeed, we need the support of the RGS community – Old Guildfordians, parents and staff, past and present, and other friends in the community who recognise the value of an RGS education.
If you would like to help increase opportunity for bright local boys, join us today.
