New students 2018

Congratulations on your daughter being offered a place here at FGS! With over 500 applications and over 200 first choices for 180 places, we are delighted that your daughter has a place in our lovely school!

This is an exciting time as your daughter embarks on a very important journey. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and look forward to your full support through our FGS Pledge in ensuring that working in partnership, we inspire and empower her to become all that she can be.

This is the start of a more independent time for your daughter and we have a team of staff in place to help and support you and your daughter through the next 5 to 7 years.

As a parent myself I know that you will want to feel confident that your child will be happy, successful and safe. Therefore, all parents and students are required to attend our Transition Evening on Thursday 3rd May at 6.30pm.

Over the next few months you will receive more information about our school and transition. Dorothy Trussell, Head of School, is leading our Transition team and if you have any queries or concerns please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.

I look forward to meeting both you and your daughter over the next few months and would like to welcome you most warmly to FGS.

Julie Hazeldine
