Supporting our future ...

Enter our Easter Virtual Balloon Race


Easter Race

Launches 12pm 4th April for 7 Days from

Jerusalem Old City

Our Mission

Working with the school, students, staff and families to the benefit of the whole school community.

We are so excited to announce that we have signed up for a
VIRTUAL BALLOON RACE to raise money towards our projects.
The world’s only virtual balloon race system, developed by Purepages Group in Manchester, offers a 100% eco-friendly way to raise money during the current Coronavirus lockdown.
Buy a virtual balloon for £3 and give it a name, colour, shape and pattern. In addition to this, you can select different features of your balloon, such as weight, which will determine its flight performance in order to enhance your chances of winning. 
How does it work?

Buy as many balloons as you like for £3 each and see how far your balloons travel on the amazing app. Track it here

All funds will go directly to the Friends of South Wilts and be used to help revamp one of the music rooms and make better use of the space for pupils at the school.

We’d love to raise £1000 through the Virtual Balloon Race and need your help! You could be in with a chance of winning £500 cash, an Apple iPad and 10 lucky winners of £10 Book tokens!

Visit to see our page and buy your balloons

You’ll need to create an account (so we know who you are if your balloon wins!)

Young Enterprise 2020/21

Mentoring future entrepreneurs

Young enterprise is a collective of year 12 students from SWGS who are dedicated to creating accessible and initiative products for students and the wider community. Each year a new group of young people take on the task of marketing and financing a new range of merchandise in which the proceeds go to a charity chosen by the group and to gain experience in running our own project. Some of our future products include the sale and distribution of school branded face coverings, beanies and Christmas decorations! We are excited to bring our ideas to life and hopefully inspire future generations of young enterprise and leave our legacy. This year the charity we have chosen to support is the Salisbury Women’s Refuge. A charity that provides accommodation for women and children fleeing domestic abuse and rehabilitation into the community. This is a matter very close to our hearts, we hope you can join us in supporting such a great cause by purchasing our products.


Thank you,


Young enterprise team 2020

UPDATE: SWGS Beanie hats will be available to purchase through PARENTPAY from January 2021.

Thank you for your patience & support.

Thank you to our supporters

FOSWGS Christmas Fair & Raffle

A huge thank you to our local businesses for all their support this year as we tested our presence in the Virtual world for Christmas. We faced all sorts of challenges with not being able to venture into the school and organising everything element via social media and email. But we made it happen with the support of our wider school community  - for that we are truly grateful.

We had two charities that we supported this year - Horatio's Garden & St Elisabeth's Convent. More information about these charities and our local businesses can be found via the link below.
