Dear TGGS Alumna

For the past few years we’ve been working on rebuilding connections with our ‘Old Girls’ and it’s been great finding out about the interesting and varied paths that you have been on. Our thanks to each of you for signing up to our mailing list so that we can keep in touch and hopefully see more of you in the future. Here are just a few things we wanted to share with you...

Work has recently started on our School Restoration Project which aims to return the corridors and classrooms of our much loved main school to something of their former glory. Although the project has commenced, there is an awful lot to do, so there are still plenty of opportunities to take part through naming a pillar, classroom, or even the triangle! If you ever wanted to leave a permanent and lasting legacy at TGGS, this is your can find all the details HERE.

We have an event coming up in November which may be of interest to some of you. Our “Speed Careers Network Event” for Year 9 will be taking place in the morning on 14th November. We are looking for volunteers, particularly employers, to come in and speak with the students in small groups where they can ask questions and find out more about the world of work. If you are living locally and would be willing to get involved please contact Mrs Batt by email on - we are particularly keen to hear from those involved in creative industries.



The 2nd Annual Grand Reunion Dinner was held on 6th July this year at The Imperial Hotel and was another great success. This joint event with Torquay Boys’ Grammar is open to all former students and staff from both schools and partners/spouses are also welcome to attend. The planning is done jointly by TOGA and TOGS - as soon as we hear that a date is decided for next year’s dinner we’ll circulate the details.


Lastly, We are hoping to put together an Alumnae Testimonials section on our website which would just be a short profile, image, brief recollection of time spent here and a piece of advice for current students. If you'd like to be included please VISIT THIS PAGE to send us your details. 

As always - if you want to get in touch with us for any reason please email us on:

Wishing you all a lovely summer!
