Since it’s launch, we have raised over £200,000 for the Nightingale Fund, thanks to the incredible generosity of the Reigatian community. As a result, four Nightingale Scholars began their life-changing journeys at RGS in September 2021.

The Nightingale Fund supports children from disadvantaged backgrounds by:

  • Providing bursaries to the children of essential key workers (NHS Scholar initiative) at various entry points throughout the school;
  • Providing bursaries in our Sixth Form for children from disadvantaged backgrounds who specifically wish to follow A level courses to access Medicine and related studies at university – nurturing the next generation of NHS heroes.

“We all recognise the value and importance of our NHS. We also appreciate that not every child has the opportunity to realise their dreams. This fund allows children from disadvantaged backgrounds to access a world-class education and fulfil their ambition to follow a medical pathway. We need our special community to help us to nurture the NHS heroes of the future.”
Sean Davey, Head of Foundation
