Celebrating our successful Sixth Years

It’s an absolute delight for us to recognise the hard work and dedication exhibited by our students from Year 8 to Year 14 in all areas of school life. Today we had the opportunity to recognise excellence in our Sixth Form who received awards for a wide range of reasons.

Pupils received awards for academic success and effort, for contributing to school life, for being a good role model to others, for charity contribution and even for being a supportive friend. Well done everyone – very proud of you all!

The University Roadshow visits GHS Year 13 Students

The University Roadshow visited our Year 13 students today to showcase up to date information about the wide variety of third level opportunities available to them.

It provided useful information for all students intending to apply to universities in: England, Scotland, Wales, the Republic of Ireland and Europe.  This was an opportunity for our students to speak to and gather information from representatives from the 9 Universities that attended. 

After a short 20 minute presentation to the students covering all aspects of applying to university which covered the application system UCAS, students then had the opportunity to go around each of the university stands and speak to the exhibiters present about their course of interest.
