The Rich’s Partnership

The past few years have seen significant cuts in the funding we receive from the Government, and this impacts on the curriculum and the extra opportunities available to our students. Rich’s Partnerships are a way for the School to build closer links with the business community and raise much needed funds.

If you or your company is interested in becoming a partner you will be supporting one of the best schools in the country, well known for both its academic excellence and sporting success. Such an association can be an important business asset; boosting your company image, increasing awareness of your brand, providing you with PR opportunities and contributing to your social media presence.

As a Rich’s Partner, companies are also be able to reach an extensive network of parents across Gloucestershire and the South West. In addition, our alumni span the globe and include many local business leaders and decision makers.

There are a range of partnership levels available, starting at just £250. We also hope you will consider the opportunity to offer non-financial support to our students, along the lines of mentoring and work experience, or if you wish to discuss a bespoke package please contact our Development Director Vicki Lynn (vn@strs.org.uk).

Your help is invaluable and is very much appreciated – all contributions go towards our students’ academic and extracurricular education, and help to develop and improve School facilities for both pupils and the local community.
