At TGS we offer a lot more than academic excellence. We offer a wide range of activities to all students from all Year groups. Enrichment helps students to develop their interests and abilities, provides valuable learning experiences outside their studies, and promotes independence and interpersonal links with students in other Years.
There are a wide range of team and individual sports to choose from. Our students compete against local schools and in national tournaments. We also offer a leadership academy for sport where students can learn techniques and skills to support primary school students with their sport.
Most clubs and activities are free to join in and some take place during the lunchtime with the majority being after school, where late buses are provided on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Students can take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award or a range of Musical activities: choir, string quartet or rock band to name a few. We incorporate interests such as debating, robotics, knitting, art or creative writing. And if a particular interest is not covered, we support our students in starting their own clubs.
Some of our enrichment offers additional academic support for students such as handwriting, spelling, reading & maths. As students progress into KS4 there are intervention sessions for most subjects on offer to support them with their progress and revision for GCSE.
There are some sessions which are designed to target specific groups of students, these are labelled as ‘Invitation Only’ however if a student is keen to join this activity they simply need to contact the teacher to express their interest.
Our Mini Bus Wednesday trips give students the opportunity to visit amazing local places and carry out a range of activities – these may be educational, social or cultural. Recent trips have included a printing workshop at Gainsborough House, bush craft & fire lighting at Eden Rose Coppice, shelter building & wildlife education at Arger Fen, archery, bowling and laser quest.
Please find our enrichment timetables attached – these are updated every half term and please contact Miss Hilson (firstname.lastname@example.org) for any further information.
