Trafford’s leading school for girls of all abilities welcomed prospective parents and pupils, for another empowering Open Evening.
Over 320 girls and their families flocked to Flixton Girls School (FGS) to meet the Headteacher, students and staff ahead of the application deadline for places at the school for the next academic year.
Over the last decade, the school has gone from strength to strength becoming an academy in 2011 and in 2017 establishing the Healthy Learning Trust. FGS is leading in the borough as the ONLY all-girls school open to students of all abilities, interests and aptitudes - surpassing national standards year on year.
The Open Evening provided an “access-all-areas” approach with demonstrations and activities in all the key subjects including sciences, music, nutrition, languages, computer science and sports; as well as talks from the heads of departments and informal meetings with pupils and staff.
Headteacher Julie Hazeldine commented that "As a former student it is a privilege for me to lead this successful and happy school. Open Evenings help pupils and parents make an informed choice about their next steps and we hope this empowering evening will have shown yet more families how their daughters can benefit through a successful education here at FGS. By choosing FGS you will be joining a school that is well respected in the local community and has a national reputation for outstanding work in many areas.”
