£1304 .04 for Operation C...

At the end of this autumn term GMS wish to celebrate the success of Operation Christmas Child. The four houses were in competition with each other to raise money for this important charity, which gives a shoe box of presents to children in the less economically developed countries of the world, including Zambia, Zimbabwe, Kyrgyzstan, Montenegro and Romania. The idea...

Rugby Match Report GMS v ...

Undoubtedly, the Great Marlow School’s Year 9 rugby team’s biggest challenge occurred recently. They were defending a 12 game unbeaten run, so the pressure was on. The long anticipated game took place at GMS, on their superb pitch. The opponents, The Royal Grammar School (RGS), normally play a mix of their A team with their B team, but for this important match...

Marlow’s Santa Fun ...

“Sir, will you do Santa’s Fun Run with us?” An innocent enough question, but not one that it’s easy to say No to! To be honest, the prospect of dressing up in a ridiculous outfit to run around Marlow on a cold December Sunday morning did not seem attractive, until my cunning brain conjured the idea that if I was doing it, I wouldn’t be the only elderly...

Christmas Music Recital

Those who attended the Christmas music recital were in for a treat on 3rd December. No fewer than 40 pupils, from all year groups, performed an eclectic mix of classical, popular and modern compilations to delight the assembled audience. Two choirs sang: the junior choir, in the first half, gave a rendition of Rip Tide followed by Love Story. The senior choir sang...

The results are truly amazing. Pupils produced beautifully crafted, illustrated books, written in language appropriate vocabulary for a younger age group. The...

FoGMs Christmas Market

Another amazingly successful Christmas Market was held in Great Marlow School on 24th November. 64 stalls, decked in festive colours, were manned by cheerful stallholders, who brought early Christmas joviality to the school and to those who attended. The main hall and canteen were busy with the customers jostling to see the many items for sale including handcrafted...

Mathematics in Action at ...

Twenty lucky Year 12 and 13 mathematic A-level students from GMS visited the Institute of Education in London to hear a number of lectures under the umbrella name of ‘Mathematics in Action’. The day was invaluable because it gave students an insight into what it is like to listen to a number of lectures over a stretch of several hours. The day began at 10.45 and...

Year 7 County Cup Fixture...

‘Some people believe football is a matter of life and death. I’m very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.’ – Billy Shankly. After their impressive win over John Hampden Grammar School in the opening weeks of September, the GMS Year 7 boys had to wait a long time for their next fixture. It came...

Berkshire College of Agri...

On a cold and wet December morning, ten Year 9 pupils were taken to Berkshire College of Agriculture (BCA) to find out about some of the courses the college has to offer. The experience would, hopefully, give the pupils some idea of a career they would like to pursue and, in turn, the options they would have to take next March. We set off, just after 9am, on the BCA...
