Empathy Day was established by Empathy Lab a leading a UK-wide empathy movement, specialising in using books and stories to build empathy. On 10th June, public libraries, schools, authors and illustrators will be joining forces to mark Empathy Day 2021.
We will have assemblies, form time and other activities during the week. The school libraries will be displaying empathy-related books under the theme of 'Put Yourself in Others' Shoes'.
As well as in schools, Empathy Lab promote Empathy Day with families. You can use the following link to The Family Activities pack: https://www.empathylab.uk/family-activities-pack

Year 7 have recently been working on a collaborative Art & Maths project. The task required the students to use rotations and reflections to create pieces of art inspired by various art styles. The work in the photo was created by Harriet (top left), Rupert (top right), Theo (bottom left) and Connie (bottom right). Great work Y7!

A huge congratulations to Maia in Y11 who has recently heard she has won the 'Design a Book Token' from the National Book Tokens for the 13 - 18 age group. Maia has won £100 in book tokens for herself as well as £250 for the school which is a fantastic achievement! We think you'll agree that the design is brilliant and fingers crossed the design will be chosen to be printed on book tokens all over the country! Maia is, understandably, incredibly excited and is looking forward to choosing her books. Well done Maia!

We asked our Alumni to share how their time at TGS helped build their professional lives.
"Without the support, extra hours and the personal touch offered by the teachers at TGS, my story could have been very different. Thank you, TGS!”
