Ways to donate

Buy a Brick to support the School

Exciting times at RGS!

Construction of the Worcester International Hockey Centre has commenced to be ready in good time for the new season in September 2021. RGS is partnering with Worcester Hockey Club to deliver this amazing sports facility that will promote Hockey at RGS and will be accessible for the local community. The facility will enable all RGS pupils to develop their skills in the sport to higher levels.

To show support alumni, parents, staff, pupils, family members, friends of the School and local residents have the opportunity to 'buy a brick' that can be engraved for display at the new facility. A certificate of thanks will be issued to everyone who purchases a brick online. Donations without buying bricks can also be made along with sponsorship and naming opportunities at the Centre.

A R Wheeler Bursary Fund

Anthony Reay Wheeler joined RGS Worcester in 1950 and served the School for his entire career until retiring in 1987. Starting as a Geography teacher and living in Whiteladies House, he rose to become Housemaster and Second Master (Deputy Head). ARW maintained contact with many of those whose lives he guided and influenced long after they left the School until his death in 2012.

Tony Wheeler was passionate about the School and unwavering in the importance he placed on as many pupils as possible receiving an RGS education. Therefore, in 2013 the Governors decided to use his substantial legacy gift to create the bursary fund named in his honour with the ambition of extending access to the School.

The Fund sits within the Foundation and the Trustees use the annual income generated from the capital base to provide additional bursary support to the School meaning that more children can receive assistance with their fees. All awards from the ARW Bursary Fund are means-tested to ensure recipients have genuine need.

Gifts of any scale can be pooled together in this fund to grow the capital thereby generating increased annual income for bursaries.

The Alice Ottley Bursary Fund

Alice Ottley founded the Worcester High School for Girls in 1883 and was a true pioneer in the field of girls' education. Her legacy was to give Worcester a school that provided an educational setting for local girls and those from further afield who boarded in which they could excel academically and in other pursuits. Miss Ottley believed that financial constraints should not be a barrier to girls receiving a first class education so she launched a bursary fund at her School's Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1908.

The Governors and Trustees are extremely proud of Miss Ottley's role in the history of the School and have created a bursary fund in her name that honours her vision and passion.

The Fund sits within the Foundation and the Trustees use the annual income generated from the capital base to provide additional bursary support to the School meaning that more children can receive assistance with their fees. All awards from The Alice Ottley Bursary Fund are means-tested to ensure recipients have genuine need.

Sponsor a Theatre Seat

The Godfrey Brown Theatre was substantially refurbished during the development of the RGS Performing Arts Centre in 2018-19. Alumni and parents were invited to sponsor a seat to raise funds towards the project costs. Each sponsored seat has a plaque installed with the donor's wording. Following the completion of the PAC development donations received through the sponsorship of seats is used to support bursaries at the School.

The cost of sponsoring a seat is £360. The Foundation has raised over £25,000 for the School through this ongoing initiative.

Further details can be provided by the Foundation Office.

Please note sponsoring a seat does not confer ownership or a preferential right to performance tickets for that seat.
