He has also recently gained a First Aid Skills Training certificate following a 3 week programme. Well done Lewis on helping others.


    The Jon Egging Hall was recently transformed into a farmland for the students' performances of HONK! featuring a cast 
    of over 50 students!

    The show, which was the culmination of months of hard work from all involved, wowed the audiences with singing, dancing, colourful costumes and talking animals! What more could we have possibly wished for? A huge well done to the cast and crew - We look forward to seeing what's next from the Expressive Arts! #GWProud

  • The Little Princess Trust

    Tia Williams (7LIr) recently decided to do something incredible to help out others less fortunate than her. Tia wanted to raise awareness for a charity called The Little Princess Trust. The charity receives donations of hair to make wigs for young girls suffering hair loss through cancer treatment or other illnesses. She very bravely had 10 inches of her hair removed showing true selflessness! What a fantastic thing to do! Well done Tia! #GWProud

  • Striking Chords!

    Students from across G&W Academies were amongst 300 young aspiring musicians who took part in Striking Chords, SoundStorm’s biennial Music Hub celebration, last July in Upton Country Park. A sold out event attracting 500 ticket holders, sponsored by the prestigious BSO and engaging over 15 schools and 20 Music Hub Partners, the event was captured and a short film has recently made available https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R7MfIIWioLE

    The G&W students came together in a number of ways; a vocal harmony group from the ever keen Year 7 (now 8) grammar stream, their jazz band and in response to the mass ensemble finale, the Year 7 vocalists led by Miss Cade added a choral input to the closing moments of the daylong event. 

    Attended by both the Mayors of Poole and Bournemouth, Arts Council England regional rep’s, various head teachers and local Councillors, the event has been highly praised not only for the scope of its programming but the additional offer it makes towards giving musicians an inspiring performance opportunity that’s a step away from the norm!

We had fifteen teams entered mainly from local Golf Clubs including Parkstone,  Ferndown,  Knighton Heath,  Meyrick Park and Crane Valley. We also had an entry from Glenmoor & Winton Academy consisting of  Leon Lima – Teacher plus three students namely Sacha and brothers Cameron and Kieran. At the end of the day Leon had excelled himself in winning both the Longest Drive competition and the Nearest the Pin prize. The winning team of the whole event was the Glenmoor & Winton Team.   The prizes were presented by Matthew Moore of GALES SOLICITORS who sponsored the event. The team all won a trophy, a voucher and a bottle pf Bubbly.  However bearing in mind my duties as a School Governor I made sure I handed the bottles to the parents. Many commented on how smart they were and how polite and well mannered they were during the day.  The amount raised on the day was  £2,700.
