PGL KS3 Away Weekend

PGL KS3 Away Weekend

Director of Learning, Mr Stuart Ross and his team are finalising the arrangements for this weekend’s KS3 adventure. They leave for PGL’s centre in Lidington, near Swindon on Friday 13th July and return on Sunday 15th July.

GMS thank all those involved in the organisation of this event and wish all the students a fantastic, memorable weekend with their peers, as they celebrate reaching the end of KS3 in GMS.

Please be reminded that students are not allowed mobile phones or electronic games, which include iPods: it is important that students enjoy experiencing the activities and socialising without social media interventions.

A kit list has been sent out on ParentMail, it is as follows:
