Y11 Art students trip to Tate Modern on Friday 21st September. Year 11 GCSE Art students were visiting the various exhibitions to find inspiration and Artists of interest to help them progress and develop their GCSE coursework.  Students took photographs and made sketches to help progress and support classroom work.

It has been brought to our attention that rumours have been circulating that there is a ‘Killer Clown’ in the local area that intends to visit our school.  We have addressed this with the younger students during form time today and would ask your support in reassuring your daughters that this is a rumour and that we have procedures in place to ensure the safety of our students when they are on the school site.

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Leamon, Assistant Head Teacher

Wilmington PFA engages in fund raising activities to support school projects for our daughters. One of our fundraising initiatives is the ‘WGSG Monthly Draw’. Parents pay an entry fee of £12 for the year by September 30th and are entered into a monthly draw to win one of two prizes - £30 or £15. In December, this gets even better as three prizes of £100, £50 and £20 are won. Our goal is to have a minimum of 100 parents entered in the draw to make the funds generated worthwhile.

Mrs Regan our WG6 Student Manager took part in the Shine Walk 2018 which is a 26.2mile marathon through the streets of London, through the night!  She took part with her sister, and their team ‘Team Sister Blister’ in memory of their brother, and all those affected by cancer.  They have already raised £1,340 for Cancer Research UK.  Despite the blisters and achy knees they are already planning to take part next year!!
