An engineering specialism within a grammar school
Have you heard of The RGS 200 Club?
What can you get for just £1.25 these days? Not a lot! You could however, for just £1.25 per month, be a member of the exclusive RGS 200 Club and be in with a chance each and every month of winning a £50 first prize or £25 second prize. Winner are published on the RGS website and in RGS News regularly and nearly £1,000 is given away in prizes every year.
Between 40% and 50% of the money received is given away in prize money each month and the remainder goes straight to the School to fund many essential projects and items.
The School mini bus, for instance, is entirely funded by money raised by the Parents' Association and in the past funds have been used to purchase things like the assembly PA equipment, art, IT and music equipment, sports items and prizes, school lockers and a host of other beneficial things for Ripon Grammar School. The Parents' Association and the Head of School, Mr Pearman, decide on the projects to be funded on an ongoing basis.
If you join the 200 Club you will be allocated a unique number which will be entered in the draw every month. You can pay by a monthly standing order of just £1.25 per month or, if you prefer, an annual standing order of just £15 per year and you can start this during any month of the year. Cheques or cash are also accepted for membership. You are eligible to join the 200 Club if you currently have a child/children at RGS or you are a member of RGS staff, a governor or are connected with the School in some way. This Club is not open to the general public.
If you would like to support the School in this way and join the 200 Club, they would love to have new members! Please ask for a joining form from the School Office or contact Sally Tweddle (200 Club administrator) on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01765 608114. Alternatively, you can download a joining form here, print it out, complete it and hand it into the School Office.
Thank you for considering the RGS 200 Club as a way to support your child/children whilst at Ripon Grammar School. It's £1.25 very well spent!
