The Abbey, Reading, September 2023

Girls Go Gold is an annual conference hosted by GSA featuring high profile sports figures. Welcoming pupils in Year 10 to 13 who are passionate about sport and enthusiastic about learning a new skill. The conference is aimed at students who represent their county, region or country in their chosen sport, or who are studying PE at GCSE or A Level and is always popular.

The day aims to enhance pupils’ understanding of the different aspects of sport beyond being an athlete.

The 2023 event will be held on Thursday 14 September at The Abbey School, Reading.  Places will be offered through an ‘Expressions of Interest’ application that will be open from Monday 6 March 2023 until Tuesday 21 March 2023 – details to follow.

This popular annual festival will run from 22 – 24 September 2023 and gives Year 8 and Year 9 girls an opportunity to shine as individuals and strengthen as a team. Over the weekend, the girls have the opportunity to meet and ask questions of a high profile netball player; in the past this has included England players Eboni Beckford-Chambers and Nat Pangarrry. They also benefit from valuable training and well-matched fixtures, and everyone enjoys the on-site team building activities and evening entertainment in the idyllic surroundings of Condover Hall in Shrewsbury.

The Edit - Adobe x Sky
October 2023

The GSA together with TA Education will launch the second Adobe creativity competition after the October half term. The project will be based on Sky: The Edit but specially amended for the GSA. Last year three schools won the competition and this year we have widened the age range to include Years 10-11 and Sixth form students. We had nearly fifty schools enter the competition this year, and we hope for more to enter this second one. Prizes will include a tour and wonderful day at one of the two UK Sky studios for each of the winning schools. More information will be coming in the next month. This is an opportunity for your girls to take part on a digital storytelling challenge around themes based on Climate Change. They will have access for video footage from Sky and other resources. If you are interested in taking part and you are new to the competition, then the first thing to do is to get your school signed up to the free Adobe Express for Education package. To do so please visit this page where you can complete a form and get signed up in a relatively short period of time. https://ta.education/creativity/,  go to Step 1 on the web page to sign up.
