Friends of LGS

Welcome to the Friends of Leicester Grammar School!

We are a group of parents and staff whose primary aim is to support the entire school community through our provision and support of academic, career, pastoral and social events. Contact the current Chair, Varsha Gaikwad at lgsfriendscommittee@gmail.com and request further information.

Quizzes, Foodie and Raffle fundraisers are some of the events which provide an income for the group to support numerous events, including:

  • Educational and Wellbeing seminars
  • Sporting equipment purchase and events 
  • Pupil Prom events

We aim to meet at least once a month to discuss agendas for proposed events. The meetings are normally held at The Yews, Great Glen every second Thursday of the month, at 7pm.

Meeting Dates 2023
