Open Events

Parents, students and other schools' staff are very welcome to come to our Open Events, and there is no need to book. You will be greeted by students who will provide you with a school tour and escort you to the Head Teacher’s talk should you wish to attend (tickets for the talk will be issued to guests on arrival on a first come first served basis).

Please allow approximately 45 minutes for a school tour, and a similar time for the Head Teacher’s Presentation.

Due to the later than usual release of Kent Test results this year, we regret that none of our Open Events can be scheduled for a date after parents have been made aware of their child(ren)’s results. It is important that parents visit all the schools they would like to consider and we look forward to meeting you at one the above events.

Please note there will be no parking available on the school site. We are located in a residential area with parking restrictions. When visiting the school please avoid bringing your car into the immediate area and make use of the park and ride system we will operate from Sovereign Way North car park (see map below).

Minibuses will collect from and deliver to the Sovereign Way North car park between 9.15am and 12.30pm for the Open Mornings above and between 5.15pm and 8:45pm for the two Open Evenings above.

If you have to access the school by car (blue badge holders should contact office@tgs.kent.sch.uk to reserve a space) please follow an informal one-way system, approaching the school uphill from the Pembury Road end of Deakin Leas and leaving uphill via Baltic Road and The Drive.

Thank you for your cooperation.
