Play Your Part Campaign

The Play Your Part Campaign needs £3,500,000 in order to achieve everything that they wish to provide. The school was given a grant of £2,200,000 from the government, which would fund the Sixth Form centre. This money could not cover the art, music and PE schemes but the school has remained determined to give its students the best surroundings possible.

Thus, the Play Your Part campaign was introduced to raise the £1,300,000 needed to attain all the refurbishments and constructions. 

The students have responded to the campaign in the best possible way and have each been encouraged to raise money in imaginative ways.

Since then, the school has raised nearly £500,000 towards the campaign and also found a charitable matched donor who kindly contributed towards the project. 

What is PYP?

TGS has recently invested in a new project to improve the quality of learning.

The new project has plans to create a vital Sixth Form learning centre that will enrich and nurture the students learning and prepare them for advanced learning environments in the real world.

Also, the project organisers intend to develop and expand the current facilities for, art, music and PE.

The plans for development are to construct the new Sixth Form learning centre, with the intention to then establish new Art and music areas for students to fully experience the culture and reach their full potential.

At TGS, the students can enjoy a varying range of global and common sports but sometimes the British weather can throw a spanner in the works.

An Astroturf will provide a solution to the problem, as well as providing an opportunity for students to get more involved in sport. This is because the Astroturf will enable the students to play all year round and enjoy sport with getting muddy!

Stage 1:

First, the old outdoor changing rooms and unused swimming pool were removed. The land was cleared and marked for the modular sections of the building to be placed in their positions. 

Stage 2:

Most of the modular structure has been put in and the site around is starting to be developed into a foreseeable walking 

What are Modular Buildings?

Modular buildings and modular homes are sectional prefabricated buildings that consist of multiple sections called modules. This method of construction is different from other methods (e.g. "stick-built" and off-site construction). The modules are six sided boxes constructed in an exterior, sometimes remote, facility, then delivered to their intended site of use. Using a crane, the modules are set onto the building's foundation and joined together to make a single building.

Are they reliable?

Absolutely. Because modular buildings are built to endure transportation to the project's site they often meet the necessary requirements for natural disasters with little reinforcement. In addition these modular buildings are built to meet building and fire safety codes.
