Friends of LGS
We are a group of parents and staff whose primary aim is to support the entire school community through our provision and support of academic, career, pastoral and social events.
This is a friendly group which not only welcomes all parents/guardians but requires minimal time commitment. Please contact the current Chair, Suze Chomo, if you would like to request further information.

The next meeting will be held on Monday 20th January at 7.00pm in The Yews, Great Glen. The February meeting will be held on Monday 10th February at 7.00pm in The yews, Great Glen.

Exciting news! Following the recent pupil survey, The Friends of LGS are buying two outdoor table tennis tables as they were number 1 on the list of requests from the pupils. They are due for delivery soon ready for use after the half term break!
This is where we post any useful links to support the events we have hosted.
