The RGSHW Greenpower club is made up of three different teams, two junior and one senior, that each build their own car to compete in the F24 and F24+ competitions. The senior team has undertaken the challenge of building their car from scratch whilst the two junior teams are attempting to squeeze every last bit of performance out of the official kits.
The club is the successor to the Caterham club, which was also led by Dr Graham Brown, and was started in 2018 with the goal of supporting and developing engineers within the school. However, due to the unique challenge that Greenpower offers, the club has also inspired students who want to study non-engineering-based subjects such as Business and Management.
The Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe (or RGS for short) is a selective day and boarding grammar school for boys aged 11-18 situated in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire. We became an Academy in February 2011. As a state school we do not charge fees for students to attend, but they must pass an entrance exam, the Buckinghamshire Grammar Schools Secondary Transfer Test (known colloquially as the 11+).
Our facilities are exceptional and the Oxbridge entry is in the vanguard of the state sector. For the last twenty years, the school has produced top class exam results, both at GCSE and A-level, surpassing many of its fee-paying competitors.
Established by Royal Charter in 1562 (though originally established as a school in 1550), it is situated on Amersham Hill, in a pleasant residential area, a short walk from the station. periodology.
