TGS is immensely proud to have been named as The Sunday Times State Secondary School of the Year 2014 and the Sunday Times International Baccalaureate School of the Year 2014.

We are an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. Through blending the best of a traditional curriculum with the principles and ethos of the IB Organisation, TGS students have opportunities to learn in breadth and depth in order to develop as well-balanced individuals. They become active learners and are encouraged to be passionate about making a difference in the world.
