Support Us

We are incredibly proud of our cricket programme and our ability to offer opportunities to all boys who want to participate, whether you have recently joined in Year 7 having played little cricket before or are representing the school for the 1st XI at our annual MCC Match.

As with all state-run schools, financial constraints are challenging, and, at an annual cost of around £25,000 to run cricket in the Summer Term, Friends of Cricket look to fund the cricket programme through parent donations, fundraising events and sponsorship. In 2022, this allowed us to invest in new indoor mats, wicket covers, an electronic scoreboard, Bola Pro bowling machine and a FrogBox camera & match streaming kit.

Annual subs are the biggest revenue stream for Friends of Cricket and essential for the cricket programme. We are grateful for donations of all sizes and donations may be made as a single payment or by instalments. We recommend £84 per student involved in cricket.  If you would like to support the Cricket Programme, please click on the “Donate” button below.  

Please support Friends of Cricket whenever possible. Come along to the Friends of Cricket Spring BBQ and buy tickets for the cricket bat auction. Keep an eye out in school comms and the RGSHW Sport social media platforms for further fundraising events.

Many thanks to all the staff, parents, boys and supporters of cricket at RGS for their continued generosity.

Looking forward to a great summer of cricket.

The Duncan Moore Fund

Duncan Moore was a very talented young cricketer who represented both School and County during his time at RGS. As an attacking middle order batsman, a lively fast-medium bowler and an athletic fielder, Duncan was a cricketing all-rounder. His enthusiasm for the game was matched by his excellence on the pitch, often challenging a batsman with an ability to change his bowling from right to left arm during an over. Duncan left RGS in 1996 to study languages and it was during his overseas year, whilst living in Belgium, that wintry conditions caused a car accident in which Duncan lost his life.

It is fitting that this fund has been named after Duncan, a young man whose talent was respected by staff, peers and opponents alike and whose enjoyment and enthusiasm for the sport of cricket embodied the values and ethos running through the cricket programme at RGS today.

Donors wishing to support the Duncan Moore Fund do so with a gift of £5,000, made as a single payment or in instalments, in a given academic year.

We would like to thank and acknowledge all donors to the Duncan Moore Fund with:

· An invitation to lunch on the day of the annual Duncan Moore Memorial Match, hosted by the Headmaster.

· An annual update from RGS Head of Cricket, Andrew Fletcher, on the Cricket Programme at RGS and the use of the donations to the Duncan Moore Fund.

· Acknowledgement on our website and in relevant RGS publications (unless preferring to remain anonymous).

1562 Society

1562 is an important year in the history of RGS High Wycombe. It is the year in which Queen Elizabeth I granted the School a Royal Charter. Five centuries later, much of RGS has altered beyond recognition. But what remains unchanged is the School’s distinctive ethos, grounded in the enduring values reflected in its Elizabethan foundation. RGS High Wycombe remains committed to building on its rich heritage, and, in so doing, to further develop its reputation as one of the finest state selective schools in the UK.

The 1562 Society was established to thank and recognise individuals within the RGS High Wycombe community who share this dedication and commitment to the School. Individuals are recognised for demonstrating significant support for RGS through the giving of their time, resources or expertise.

For our financial supporters this means donating £15,620 or more to our cricket fundraising programme in a given academic year.
