There has never been a better time to join Flixton Girls School.

Flixton Girls School is a truly exceptional school with a distinctive ethos and compelling sense of purpose. Established in 1933 and as the founding member of the multi-academy Healthy Learning Trust in Trafford (formed in September 2017), the school promotes an approach to education which is holistic, inclusive and altruistic. The curriculum at FGS is underpinned by these values and the students and staff strive to enhance their lives and those of others through the holistic understanding that the academic, physical, nutritional, emotional, social and moral aspects of our lives are inter-connected.

At FGS we are specialists in girls' education providing a nurturing, supportive and challenging environment where girls excel. We inspire girls to discover their talents and fulfil their potential through our founding principles of aspiration, empowerment and excellence. These principles are at the heart of life at FGS, ensuring that each individual is able to achieve her personal best.

As a result of this clear philosophy FGS provides a well-rounded education where the curriculum places a balanced emphasis on academic study, sport and physical well-being, along with developing a thorough understanding of the importance of good nutrition and mental health. Many students progress from the 6th form to study careers in health related fields supported through the HLT strategic partnerships with the NHS and other well-being providers.

The academic curriculum is strengthened by a huge array of enrichment activities available across all curriculum areas every day at lunchtime (to reflect our commitment to inclusion) and after school. The most significant and integral activities in our programme includes:

● Adventurous outdoor activity with the Outward Bound Trust and the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme at bronze, silver and gold.
● Creative and Performing Arts are very strong and play a vital part in school life.
● High levels of participation in PE and Sport have been at the core of raising achievement and changing the culture at FGS over the last 12 years. Our work with the Youth Sport Trust has helped us ensure that all students can benefit from an outstanding PE and Sport offer including the development of highly successful sporting teams finding county, regional and national success in football, netball, rounders, basketball, and athletics to name but a few.
● Sports and games provision matches the school and the Healthy Learning Trust's commitment to physical well-being through extensive playing fields, a new 4G multi-use pitch and our partnership with the recently refurbished Urmston Leisure Centre.
● Our TAG (Talented Able and Gifted) programme supports and celebrates highly talented students to balance training with academic study and to provide a platform for performance and celebration across both sporting, performance and academic disciplines.
● STEM activities and a host of national and international trips and visits assist in developing deeper learning experiences extending both academic study and independence.
● Engagement in all of the above is reflected in our Passport to Scholarship that encourages students to achieve balance across the 5 pathways to health and well-being, backed up by a wealth of opportunities and experiences for all.
● Learning facilities at FGS have recently been enriched by over a £1million investment
ensuring the long term sustainability of the fabric of the school. The sixth from centre has been refurbished and students benefit from the use of Google chrome books. This facility will be extended across the whole school.

The staff at FGS are talented, determined and committed to the well-being and success of the students. They feel privileged to help students discover their talents, to support and encourage them in the seven year journey from child to young adult.

In choosing FGS whether as a new member of staff, you will be joining a school that is well respected in its local community and has a national reputation for work in many areas. We look forward to receiving your application.
