Our Projects & Events

We arrange a number of events for the students and families during the year. 

A new exciting event is on the horizon - a joint Grammar Christmas Fair - bringing all our powers together for a Bigger Fabulous fair. You can get more information here. If you want to apply for a stall please apply here.

Everyone can get involved - we need helpers and donations!

Student well-being

One of our key goals this year is to provide different means to support the student's well-being - such as providing well-being pods and Online resources. 

We have recently assisted the Yr13 leavers to facilitate a joint Yr13 Grammar Prom at the race course - however due to lockdown extension it was cancelled. Money from the Easter Balloon race is contributing towards Yr 11 & Yr 13 school leaving events. Well-being end of year events will also be funded for the remainder of the school

We are also assisting with the refurbishment of the P4 Music suite - which is the largest and oldest and in real need of upgrading.

If you have any ideas how we can assist student well-being going forward please contact us or come to our virtual meetings.
