Bridgemary Library – 7th July 2022

On Thursday 7th July, our Year 8 Global Curriculum students performed to students from Alver Valley School at Bridgemary Library. This event was a collaboration between the GFM Performing Arts Department and Gosport Libraries to engage youngsters in the Summer Reading Challenge. Our students created a ‘living installation’ where the audience could interact with the performance. They were exceptional in their interactions with the younger students and their performances were well received. To find out more about the Summer Reading Challenge, how your child can get involved and other events that the Gosport libraries have to offer this summer, please use the links below:

‘Clue’ – Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th September 2022

The Drama team were excited to present ‘Clue: High School Edition’ with a talented team of students from KS3 all the way up to our Level 3 BTEC Performing students. From the actors on stage, to the backstage crew, the commitment of all of our students and staff brought this incredible show together. 

Based on the iconic 1985 Paramount movie which was based on the classic Hasbro board game, ‘Clue’ is a hilarious farce-meets-murder-mystery.

When their host turns up dead, they all become suspects. Led by the butler, Mr. Wadsworth, Miss Scarlet, Professor Plum, Mrs White, Mr. Green, Mrs Peacock and Colonel Mustard race to find the killer as the body count stacks up. 

Search by Torchlight

Year 10 Drama students helped to create a ghostly world at Hampshire Museum’s Search by Torchlight event for Halloween. 

The students dressed up and spooked visitors in the dark with their ghostly apparitions.

Wendy, from the Hampshire Cultural Trust, said: “The students were amazing and really helped to bring our building to life through the characters they became. “We received lots of praise and positive feedback from the visitors to the event.The young people were a credit to your school and should all be very proud of themselves. We really appreciate the students and teachers giving up their time in the half term to make our event a success.”


GFM Youth Dance 

GFM Youth Dance runs on a Thursday from 3.30-4.30pm

The group is open to any students across the GFM and any ability. 

In previous years we have taken part in the Fareham and Gosport Dance show, Dance Platforms at the University of Chichester as well as Expressive Art shows here at Brune Park.


On the 18th November some of our KS3 students and a lower sixth student took part in an Evening of Musical Theatre at Thornden Hall in Chandlers Ford organised by the Hampshire Music Service. It was an amazing evening and had been preceded by a rehearsal on the previous Friday evening. The tracks included songs from Wicked, Grease, The Lion King and Hair. The students all worked extremely hard and did themselves proud in the final concert. We had been rehearsing in school since September and had also attended a short workshop to learn the movement for the songs.

The students say:

  • I liked how there were many opportunities for solos within the evening.
  • I really enjoyed getting to know people from other schools who enjoy performing as much as we do.
  • It was great to see so many parents and friends come to watch the show in the evening.
  • I really liked the show because everyone came to watch us and we got to know a lot of new people. 
  • Everyone was so kind in helping us get to the right place at the right time.
