FGS Proudly Opens It's Doors

Posted at 2:59 pm on 2nd October, 2019

Flixton Girls School (FGS) students and staff proudly welcomed prospective parents and pupils, for our annual Open Evening.

Over 250 girls and their families streamed through our doors where they were able to meet the Headteacher, students and staff ahead of the application deadline for places at the school for the next academic year.

Over the last decade, the school has gone from strength to strength becoming an academy in 2011 and in 2017 establishing the Healthy Learning Trust. FGS is leading in the borough as the ONLY all-girls school open to students of all abilities, interests and aptitudes - surpassing national standards year on year. 

The Open Evening provided an “access-all-areas” approach with demonstrations and activities in all the key subjects including Maths, English, sciences, music, nutrition, languages, computer science and sports; as well as talks from the heads of departments and informal meetings with pupils and staff.


Headteacher and CEO of the Healthy Learning Trust Julie Hazeldine commented that "As a former student it is a privilege for me to lead this successful and happy school. Open Evenings help pupils and parents make an informed choice about their next steps and we hope this empowering evening will have shown yet more families how their daughters can benefit through a successful education here at FGS. By choosing FGS you will be joining a school that is well respected in the local community and has a national reputation for outstanding work in many areas. As a member of the Healthy Learning Trust at FGS we place a great emphasis on a healthy approach to learning - we call it ‘scholarship through health and well-being’ encouraging students to maintain healthy life habits to give them the best chance of achieving their potential.”
