The Raglan Schools Association

The Raglan Schools Association (the RSA) is a registered charity directly linked to the school. It is made up of volunteer parents and members of school staff. 

The RSA raises money to provide extra things to aid and enhance our children's education. These can be big items (such as a set of Chromebooks or outdoor play equipment) or smaller items (such as pinboards for displaying the children's work or new books). We aim to organise fun activities and create a community feel through our events, while at the same time raising much needed funds. The money raised really does make a big difference - thank you for your ongoing support!

  • You did it! Thank you so much for your fantastic fundraising efforts last term.  We are really pleased to let you know that we managed to raise over £11,000 last term.  We have met our fundraising target for the Hobbit House shown in the picture below and are working with the school on determining the best time to get it installed on the school field for the children to enjoy!

  • For many years the school and the RSA have been working together to raise funds to redevelop the school field - we are really excited that an outdoor classroom and a trim trail (among other things) are now open! The RSA has contributed £47,000 for the first phase of work. This is an incredible sum of money so a MASSIVE THANK YOU to parents old and new for making this possible!

The image is a picture of children holding a sign that says thank you to the RSA for funding the redevelopment of the school field.

  • So far the children have been using it to run to Tokyo  in the mornings, it has been used for playtimes, an Easter trail, sports days and the Summer fair and we’d like to add more stations to it. Learn more about how you can help.
