On Monday 14 September a large number of Reigatians (former pupils, parents and friends) attended a House of Commons River Terrace Reception hosted by Crispin Blunt MP for Reigate, and on behalf of the RGS Foundation. This was a splendid evening and which raised awareness of the work of the Foundation, particularly with the very important Changing Lives campaign and also to celebrate the School’s 340th anniversary. Reigate Grammar School Headmaster, Shaun Fenton, highlighted the wide range of pupil success stories and potential plans for RGS as we look to our 350th birthday in 2025.
The highlight of the evening was a memorable violin solo performed by recent leaver, Karolina Csathy, who is about to take up a place at Cambridge to study Music. Karolina also gave an emotional speech highlighting the impact the bursary she received has had on her life.
A truly memorable night, a wonderful setting and thank you to all those who attended.
