Evening of Excellence

Posted at 1:20 pm on 7th May, 2019

FGS students from year 7 through to year 13 participated in our hugely rewarding Evening of Excellence celebration. The girls showcased their exceptional talents and abilities through live music, dance, sports performances and inspirational speeches.

The student speeches included a wide variety of subjects from History – ‘The 60’s revolution’, MFL – ‘Global community linguistic skills’, English – ‘Hidden voices’, Psychology – ‘Power of memory’, Sociology – ‘#iweigh campaign’, STEM – ‘Power research’ and Geography – ‘Is fashion killing our planet?’.

Ex-student from 2015 Imania Yaqub, who is now studying medicine at University of Manchester returned to FGS as our special guest speaker. It was lovely to welcome Imania back to FGS and she said the following about the event:

‘It was so nice to come back to FGS to share my journey into medicine at UOM. I really enjoyed my time at Flixton and believe the school gave me many opportunities that allowed me to fulfil my ambitions to go on to study medicine. I hope to support future medics at FGS by helping with their personal statements and interview techniques for such a competitive course.’


Miss O’Halloran said; ‘I am so pleased with the celebration of excellence evening; the standard of performances was extremely high and our year 10 student presenters Olivia Houston and Freja Jones were extremely professional.

Special thanks to Imania Yaqub, for taking time out of her medical university studies and returning to FGS for this evening of celebration. Focusing on our young peoples futures allows them to achieve excellence and make their futures bright.’
