🎨 Artist of the Month 🎨
Congratulations to our Artist of the Month for September, Jonathan in Year 7. Jonathan has completed a beautiful sketchbook page on his current topic of 'Line'. He has experimented with different styles of lines, creating a mark-making border around his page. Well done, Jonathan!

📚 In English, Year 8 have been reading the absolutely gripping book called Darkside by Tom Becker.
📚 Jonathan Starling stumbles upon an alternative world of vampires and the underground horrors of Darkside. Discovering his own heritage as partially Darkside, Jonathan becomes haunted by some evil power-hungry villains. Mostly guided by a gruff werewolf detective, Carnegie, Jonathan will uncover some dark secrets about himself and Darkside....
📚 They have been creating a timeline of events along with character studies and seem to be hooked on what will happen next!

Within our 100% pass-rate, 92% of grades were A* to B, 65% were A* to A, and 43% overall were A* grades.
Despite pandemic-related disruption across both years of A level study, our students have shown resilience and determination, arguably working even harder than usual to achieve incredible results that are in keeping with those of previous cohorts in recent years. We are very proud of our students and the success that they have earned.

🐝 Introducing the TGS Bee Hotel 🐝
Recently during Discovery Club, pupils have been busy bees making their very own TGS Bee Hotel!
Situated in the Outdoor Classroom, pupils with the help of Mrs Faye and the Maintenance Team, made the hotel out of pallets, bricks, tiles, wood and more. To make the hotel more welcoming and help attract the bees, they also planted some flowers and shrubs around the hotel.
Fantastic work, we're certain the bees will be very happy with their new accommodation at TGS 🐝

"The support and camaraderie that I experienced at TGS allowed me the confidence to pursue a career path that at times felt out of reach, and in my opinion that is the greatest service a school can provide a student. I am forever indebted!”
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!”
