Has your child been offered a place to join us in September 2015?
We look forward to welcoming you and your child(ren) to our school.

'Men of Fields' Fundraising

Did you know that GFS have a Dad’s Cricket Club known as ‘Men of Fields’? Every year they raise money for charity and the school fund.
This year the club will be remembering Rayyan by walking round the Isle of Wight – only 67 miles! They are hoping to raise £10,000 for Great Ormond Street Hospital who cared for Rayyan during his short illness.
You can support them through JustGiving. £5,000 raised so far! Thank you.
