- Just to remind you to be at school by 2:30 am with your passport and letter stating I can take you out of the country and one giving permission to swim if we get chance.
Have a good sleep beforehand too.
On Wednesday 28th March, a group of AGGS Student musicians went to to Ashland’s care home in Sale, to perform ‘Choral Reef’ to the home’s residents. There were some lovely singing, violin and ukelele performances. Well done Tayiba S and her team, it was heartwarming to see smiling residents and hear them singing along!
Year 9 School Council reps are raising awareness of different global learning days with their year group. January saw World Peace Day, and to celebrate this, year 9 made paper cranes which have now been displayed in the library. These cranes represent the wish of peace and celebrate the importance of non violence across the world. April will see World Earth appreciation day when year 9 will be growing sunflowers in their forms.
Year 7 School Council organised this year’s Fandom Day to raise money for hooks and shelving for the ledge and new books for the library. Students dressed up to represent their favourite fandom, we had all sorts of outfits. Well done to all year 7 school council reps for organising and the rest of year 7 for entering into the spirit of the day.
The Charity Committee have run cake sales, a pancake sale, a Pink Day as part of Paint Altrincham Pink and finally an Easter Egg hunt.. The students have also collected half termly donations for charity.
Thank you to The Charity Committee, Form Charity Reps and students for all their hard work and support.

This term the physics department at AGGS publicised the Talent 2030’s National Engineering Competition for Girls, targeting students from years 9, 10 and 12. The competition invites students to solve the major challenges of the 21st century, to get creative, get thinking and most of all – have fun!
The objective of this competition was to identify and provide possible solutions for some of the challenges of the 21st century
We were really pleased with the phenomenal interest in this competition with 97 girls from AGGS submitting an entry about a diverse range of topics which included:
