    It’s beginning to look a lot like…the Sports Hub! In spite of a month’s rain in one day, the sports hub is taking shape and is still on track for being open for business in the new academic year. The sports hub, which will also include an all-weather pitch will add - badminton; indoor football; basketball; futsal; indoor cricket - and a host of other sports to be played at Gordon's whatever the weather. Fundraising for the internal fixtures and equipment is gathering pace with a sponsored skydive; London Marathon run; gastronomic evening and the GSPA Quiz Night on 13th March (for further details, please click here). The hub will benefit both the school and local community. For further details on how to donate to it, please click here.

  • RUGBY 7S IN PORTUGAL

    Published 19/02/20

    In this, their first time competing in Europe's most exciting sevens tournament, Gordon's U14s; U16s and U18s travelled to Lisbon for the Lisbon Junior 7s. Putting in excellent performances against tough opposition, the 31 boys finished off sixth overall in their categories with the U16s bringing home silverware as eventual Plate Winners. Head of Rugby Chris Davies commented: "“I see tours of this kind, as the ideal opportunity to assist with our preparation for the sevens season. To play different opposition in a foreign country presents these boys with many challenges which of course is great for their learning and improvement of their 7s game."
