The fund was created in 2013 using a substantial legacy gift received from Anthony Reay Wheeler. ARW was the hugely respected Second Master, Head of Whiteladies boarding house and Head of Geography who gave his entire career in service of the School (RGS 1950-87).
This fund recognises Miss Ottley's contribution to education and the pioneering role she played in developing girls' education when she opened the Worcester High School for Girls in 1883. The school was renamed in her honour (1912) and then merged with RGS in 2007.
Sponsor a seat in the Godfrey Brown Theatre and have your support recognised on a plaque on one of the new seats carrying your own message. Funds raised through seat sponsorship will be used to support additional bursary provision at the School.
