Primary School Events

MGGS 2017-2018 Primary School Events

We are delighted to share with you our new and exciting 2017-18 programme of primary school events at MGGS. As an accredited Advanced Thinking School with the University of Exeter, the development of thinking skills is central to our partnership programme.

We are offering a selection of ‘Primary School Visits’ (for primary schools only to book) so students and primary colleagues can share in the MGGS experience and explore our fantastic facilities. These visits cover Literacy at Secondary, Science at Secondary, Thinking Skills Workshops, Food Skills (bread making), Design Technology, Product Design and WWII Tunnel Visits. To enquire for further details, please email

In addition, we are delighted to offer ‘Taster Days’ and ‘One Off Taster Lessons’ throughout the year for parents/carers to book directly online. There are activities for girls in Years 5 and 6 (for academic year 2017-18) in the Maidstone area looking for a grammar school place. And finally, our ‘Summer School Fun!’ is also available for parents/carers to book directly for girls and boys in Years 4 and 5 (for academic year 2017-18).

For dates and the full schedule of events please take a look at our Primary School Events Programme for September 2017-2018.
