Friends of Steyning Grammar School (FoSGS)

Friends of Steyning Grammar School (FoSGS) is a charity whose role is to:

  • Develop effective relationships between staff, parents and others associated with Steying Grammar School
  • Engage in activities and provide equipment, which support the school and advance the education of pupils across all year groups

FoSGS is run by volunteers who are generally busy parents and we always welcome new people to join us. It’s a great way to meet other parents and be involved in supporting the school.

The Committee currently has 9 members and our Chairperson is Catherine Stone.  Please e-mail fosg@sgs.uk.net if you would like to become a Committee member.  The current members are retiring at the end of this academic year and, therefore, if no-one comes forward FoSGS will no longer continue in its present form.

Fundraising

Our main event of the year is the Winter Fair which takes place every November. This year's Fair will be held on Saturday, 25th November 2017.

Steyning Grammar School Heads of Departments provide a wide range of requests for what they need and each year the FoSGS Committee discuss and agree which to fund.

The following are just a few examples of items that FoSGS have purchased for the school:

SGS Brilliant Book Awards, author visits, books, competition prizes, keyboards and other equipment for Music, SGS games kit for various sports, funding extra-curricular coaches, outdoor picnic benches, 3D printer, chrome books, books for Humanities, dictionaries for all classrooms, LED lights for Drama Hall, art books for contextual understanding and camera equipment for Photography and Art students.

Parent Forums

We run two types of Parent Forum:

  • An E-Parent Forum which enables parents and carers to email their questions and comments about the school.  Please follow the link to the E-Parent Forum 
  • Termly Parent Forum which enables open discussions to take place between parents/carers and senior members of the Steyning Grammar School's Leadership Team. Please follow the link to the Termly Parent Forum
