FOGS Drop ‘n’ Shop


On Thursday 29th December the FOGS led the drop and shop evening where 70 children from year 1 to year 4 came to school for a disco in the evening and were treated to a McDonalds tea. The children had a really good time playing games and eating their dinner with their friends. A huge thank you to the FOGS who organised this event and led the evening so smoothly with a number of staff helping out too!

One of our lovely young year 4 children also made lots of loom bracelets, rings, charms and more to sell to raise money for our school too! She will be selling the rest of her products at lunch time on Monday 17th December 2018. Each item is £1, please send your child in with money if they wish to purchase something!


This year we had M&M productions back at The Gatwick School to perform the annual pantomime. They had a brand new set, and all the children’s favourite current pop songs woven into a modern twist on Snow White. The children really enjoyed the morning—watching Miss Webber, Miss Newman, Mr Keightley and Mrs Saltoglu in the dance off was a real highlight!

Thank you all for supporting this event by contributing to the booking through parent pay. If you haven't done so yet it would be really helpful for us to complete this event with the remaining payments.



In the spring term we will begin swimming lessons again. These will be for year three and year four, starting from January for 12 weeks per class. We will send out further information regarding dates, however please ensure your child has a swimming costume (not bikini) or swimming trunks that fit them, and a swimming hat if you would prefer them not to get wet hair (they do not have time for full hair washes after swimming). They will need these from the first week back in January. Thank you.
