The Friends of RLS was formed in January 2003 and is a team of parents and staff. Our work revolves around organising and supporting events for parents and students with the aim of bringing the school’s community together.
We work as a committee with the help of parents who have volunteered to be a part of our ad hoc Helpers Group. We work on the basis of “please come and help for as much or as little time as you can, without any commitment”. We meet every 4-6 weeks to plan events, discuss finances and come up with new innovative fundraising ideas.
Over the academic year we have a number of events which are our “regulars” – Family Quizzes, Summer Ball, over 18s Disco and Run the Claydons. All our events and refreshment “pop ups” raise funds for the school and the money is spent on things that the school would like but need extra help funding. On average we raise £11000 per year.
Examples of what the money has been spent on:
Please do get in touch if you would like to be involved in some way, however big or small, and follow us on social media.
Chairperson: Magda Jankowiak (Mother of past students)

Mr Jenkins (Chemistry Teacher) will be our quizmaster again and we are looking forward to seeing what he has up his sleeve for us this time!!! Like always it is going to be a fantastic night full of fun for the whole family, so please come and join in. Parents, students, staff and their friends (also friends not associated with the school) are very welcome and we hope that as many as possible can make it.
We expect the evening to end about 10.30 pm. All profits raised by the Friends go to support the students at RLS. Our Quiz Nights are always a huge success and to ensure you and/or your team can be registered please return the booking form by 14th May to firstname.lastname@example.org (Magda will receive it). You can organise your own team of up to ten people or we can arrange for you to join a team on the night. The rounds will cover various topics and there will be something for everyone … and it is all about having fun on the night.
Tickets: £7.50 per adult / £6.00 for under 18s – includes a jacket potato supper with choice of fillings: chilli, tuna (with mayo & sweetcorn) or cheese/beans. There will be a bar providing beers, wine, fruit juices/soft drinks, chocolates, sweets and homemade cakes.
The number of attendees is limited due to the hall capacity so please book as soon as possible if you wish to attend.
Any questions please do not hesitate to email Magda on email@example.com
