The Friends of Granville (FOG), the school’s parents’ association, hold fund-raising events to foster social contact and to raise funds for educational and sporting equipment that is outside the resources provided by the school. In recent years FOG has raised funds for iPads, digital information screens and the school mini bus.

Towards the end of the Summer term, the Chair of FOG gives a speech highlighting the great FOG events of the year and to thank the people who have made them happen.
A Welcome Drinks Party is held at the beginning of the academic year to introduce new parents and staff to the school. The highlight of the year is the Founder’s Day Fête held in May to celebrate the birthday of the school. In addition there is a Christmas Fair, a bi-annual summer ball and various other fund-raising and social events. In recent years this has included a wine tasting evening, a quiz evening and a race evening for the adults- and the year wouldn’t be complete without the Secret Santa Christmas event, Junior Movie night and Senior Disco for the pupils.
Dates for the diary:
– FOG AGM- Monday 28th January 2019
– Founder’s Day Fete- Saturday 11th May 2019
