Headteacher and CEO of the Healthy Learning Trust Julie Hazeldine said “Our reason for setting up our Sixth Form at FGS (thanks to the great partnership we have with Trafford College) was to ensure that we are able to support each and every girl to fulfil her potential and achieve her life’s ambition by providing education from 11 to 18. We do this through small teaching groups, our special relationships with the girls and their families, through excellent teaching and the wonderful staff who go above and beyond to support and build confidence and resilience amongst the students. Our community, parents and students are delighted with our excellent reputation now extending into A Level delivery and Sixth Form provision."
