Church

Here at school we have very close links with our church,

St Thomas' of Garstang

The vicar visit school regularly and hold "Wednesday Worship" in the school hall each week. Parents are friends are welcome to join us for this community worship.  St Thomas' is part of the Diocese of Blackburn in the parish of Garstang St Thomas'.

The school has for many years, sponsored the education of a student in Ghana. In December 2017 his family wrote this letter to thank us for his support as he graduates from university.

Community

Our community links do not stop with the church. The school is an important part of the community and is happy to get involved in lots of community activities.

Fairtrade

 As the first Fairtrade town, Garstang has strong links with the Fairtrade movement and the school are delighted to be a part of this. In 2011 we became a Fairtrade school through our committment to Fairtrade, making us the first Fairtrade school in the first Fairtrade town! During Fairtrade Fortnight the curriculum is particularly full of fairtrade activities with visits to local shops, campaigning and Fairtrade projects.

Garstang in Bloom

Garstang is proud of it's Britain in Bloom successes and the school has played a part in this. When they returned to school in September, the children were delighted to discover that their gardening efforts had resulted in a Gold Award from the Young Wyre in Bloom judges.

 The judges who met with a group of pupils and staff during the school holidays were especially impressed with the new school allotment project which has seen home grown produce making its way onto the school dinner menu!  Children have been tucking into potatoes, radish and tomatoes from the plots which have been developed within the school grounds. Also on display for the judges were plants growing in a variety of unusual containers including wellies discovered on a litter pick!
