    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    On Sunday 8 April 2018, seven superhero members of staff and two brave year 8 mums, are running in the Manchester Marathon, to help raise much needed funds for our school.

    We have two teams of four, running the course as a relay - and the amazing CHRIS ARMSTRONG is leaving his Physics department to run the full marathon in full ( and hopefully will get a fantastic new PB time!)

    Team A consists of our very own Jenny Ogunmyiwa ( Vice Principal & PTA Chair), Rick Berry ( School Business & Finance Manager), Helen Cleary ( Assistant Vice Principal) and Nicola Walker ( Assistant Vice Principal)

    Team G (The Legs) have runners Kate Reynolds (Head of PE), Paula Payne ( Art Teacher & Senior Tutor), Sarah Hocking ( Evie’s mum, year 8) and Nicola Stanley ( Isobel‘s mum, year 8)

    Not only are these brave runners setting a fabulous example to our children and students at the school, they are hoping that all the lovely parents, friends and local companies will show their support and dig deep and sponsor them.

    All money raised will go to AGGS PTA to help us buy much needed equipment and help fund educational needs for our school. Previously PTA purchases include a new fridge for Food Tech, Picnic Benches outside, PH Monitors for Science, Headphones & Organs for the Music Room, Beanbags in the library, Mirrors for Dance .. the list goes on. In addition, the PTA is funding for the first time this year, the end of year Merit Trips and also the badges for the Rewards Assembly - and we hope to finish the infamous ‘Ledge’.

    Thank you thank you thank you to our runners for supporting us on our wild idea, conceived in the school dining hall - we truly appreciate your time, the training and ‘general fabulousness’ for doing this!!

    Please sponsor them and help our wonderful school. Sponsorship is welcome in all shapes and sizes - literally every penny counts!

    Thank you!
