Friends of RLS

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:

  • Financing the annual maintenance of the school’s minibus
  • Purchasing two outside table tennis tables
  • A new flagpole
  • Contributing to upgrades of IT suites
  • Furnishing a counselling room
  • Decorating the Library and Green Room
  • Contributing to upgrades of the Music Dept IT equipment and software  

 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.
