    Taking their commitment to fundraising for the new sports hub at Gordon's to new heights, our Head Teacher Andrew Moss; Bursar Susan Meikle and Senior Pipe Major Iona Scotson will do a sponsored skydive tomorrow. The threesome will join parents Jane Blackbeard-Powick and Victoria Bailey in their brave feat. Mr Moss said of the terrifying challenge: “I am always telling students to be the best that they can be and to challenge themselves so I thought I really should set myself a challenge and do my bit to help the fundraising effort for the sports hub. I have done something similar before so I believe my chances of surviving are high!” Please click here to read their stories and sponsor them.

    Published 10/07/19

    In just one hour, our Year 9 students had to come up with a concept/product find its USP and produce marketing for it before giving a presentation to two judges – Dragons’ Den-style! Gordon’s Business Breakfast regulars David Goodman of Swift Motors and Thomas Prout of Workflow Document Solutions judged the teams, crowning the best to be the team who struck on the idea of  a biodegradable water holder. Special mention was made of Angel Lowe for her contribution to the team. Earlier in the day the Year 9 cohort had learned the art of putting together a CV; honed their interview techniques and taken part in team building exercises.

    Students from Year 9 lay a wreath at the Menin Gate Memorial during last night’s Remembrance Ceremony. Since 1929 the Last Post has been sounded at the Menin Gate Memorial every night. The only exception was during the four years of the German occupation of Ypres from 1940 to 1944. During that time the ceremony was held at Brookwood Military Cemetery, where Pipe Major Edward Lee played the Last Post on Sunday at their monthly Remembrance Service.

  • brookwood remembrance service

    Published 08/07/19

    Proud to be a part of the Brookwood Last Post Association's Remembrance Service at Brookwood Military Cemetery yesterday. The service is held on the first Sunday of every month and while the school used to send the Pipe Major to play a Lament, this sadly dwindled out. Now this has been rekindled and our Pipe Major Ed Lee played the Lament during the service. Not only was this the last engagement of the year for the Pipes and Drums, it was the Pipe Major's final event with the Pipes and Drums after a seven year career at Gordon's and in the Band.
