Friends of Flixton Update

Our new Friends of Flixton group are working together to raise funds to support all who attend our school. All ex-students, staff, parents / carers and members of the local community are welcome to attend their meetings and get involved with fundraising efforts. Funding from the government is dwindling year on year and the Friends aim to help the school by raising much needed funds.

They run events in school for example our annual Christmas Fair and provide refreshments at parent evenings and school events. There are lots of ways for you to get involved: by attending our meetings, sharing your fundraising ideas, volunteering at our events, offering match funding from your place of employment and/or sponsor the refurbishment.

Having successfully completed a variety of fundraising events they have been able to provide the school with a refurbished hall kitchen, clocks on the corridors and additional outdoor seating.

We are currently raising money to support our on-going initiatives for:

• Refurbishment of student toilets
• Providing more outdoor seating
• Refitting student changing rooms including shower access

Please get involved and show your support by emailing us at: friends(at)

FGS wishes to thank everyone who has donated both their time and money; ensuring the needs of our Flixton family are met.
