Amazing 'History of Royal Patronage' – Royal Alexandra and Albert School

Trustee, Governor and former Foundationer Scholar at RAAS, John Billingham (right), has recently completed an amazing ‘History of the Royal Patronage’ (1850 – 2018) which has been fundamental to the successful growth and development of the school over those years. Chair of Governors, Bill Gillen (left) encouraged John’s drive to record this unique element of RAAS’s heritage, and the document will be lodged with the Surrey History Centre to allow access by all devotees of such unusual insights into the history of our county. Students and parents will also be keen to share such details, and John promises a pocket-sized, summarised version in the near future!
