Keeping Parents Involved

Here at FGS we recognise how important it is to establish good relationships and communication with parents and carers and welcome this wherever possible.

At FGS we promote an open and communicative environment, offering a range of communication opportunities and strategies to maximise partnerships with our parents and carers.

In recent years, technology has played an increasingly key role in bridging the communication gap. We have harnessed these new technologies to offer a number of simple, effective channels of communication. These enable us to keep you up to date regarding all our exciting events, trips and student achievements, as well as important forthcoming events:

The website

At www.flixtongirls.com you can find all the latest news and events, letters home, newsletter archive, school calendar and a wealth of useful information about all aspects of school life.

The website has been designed to operate on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets as well as on desktop pc's.

Twitter

We have several Twitter feeds including the following:

@FlixtonGS - our main school Twitter feed - follow for all the latest news and comment from the school.
@FGS6thForm - our dedicated Sixth Form feed for all things post 16 at FGS.

Individual subjects and faculties also have Twitter feeds and you will be made aware of these via the teaching staff from these departments.
