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, Suze Chomo to request further information.
Join here to participate in our virtual meetings and, and do watch out for email notifications about monthly social gatherings, where we discuss support opportunities for the school and students.
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

Exciting news! Following the recent pupil survey, The Friends of LGS are buying two outdoor table tennis tables as they were number 1 on the list of requests from the pupils.
This is where we post any useful links to support the events we have hosted.
