Congratulations to our Artist of the Month for April, Amy in Year 11.
Amy created a repeated floral pattern after a visit to a local garden centre. Amy then screen-printed her design on to fabric and sewed the pieces together to create this piece. Her design was inspired by the work of the Arts and Crafts movement, and William Morris. Amy's next creation is a hand embroidered headdress to complete the look.

Artist of the Month March
Congratulations to our Artist of the Month for March, Ailish in Year 9. Ailish created a felted landscape of a photograph she took last summer. She used a wet-felting technique to create the background of her image and then needle felted the details. Fantastic work!

"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!”
