New students 2022

Congratulations on your daughter being offered a place here at FGS! With over 350 applications for 190 places, we are delighted that your daughter has a place in our lovely school!

This is an exciting time as she embarks on a very important journey. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to the "Flixton family" and look forward to us working together to inspire and empower her to become all that she can be.

Whilst there is an improving situation regarding the global pandemic, things are still a bit uncertain and rocky, but I want to reassure you that we're looking at an enhanced transition programme to ensure that the process is as fulfilling as possible, including opportunities for meetings with myself and members of the transition team. 

Our transition event plans, see below, are on going and we will be in-touch directly as they are confirmed. We are aiming to provide the following: 

  • Our Welcome Evening on Thursday 28th April, on school premises
  • Virtual "Meet the Headteacher" sessions over Zoom, in May
  • Additional opportunities for individuals to have an orientation visit of the school site.
  • FGS staff to visit as many year 6 classes, face to face, throughout the summer term. 
  • Potential full induction day on Thursday 7th July.       

All of the above are subject to whatever guidance is set by Trafford but please rest assured that we aim to undertake the maximum number of activities possible.

We will endeavour to make your daughter's preparation for joining us as personalised as possible and, dependent on need and government guidance, would be happy to look at a potential academic summer school in the latter half of August, if we can. We will let you know what we are able to do as soon as we have further information.

Whilst I am unable to give confirmed specifics of our transition plans at this stage, I really look forward to meeting both you and your daughter, either virtually or face to face, over the coming months. If you have any immediate questions, please do not hesitate to contact on admin(at) and we will help all we can.

Kind regards,

Dorothy Trussell
