Townley Grammar School is proud to share, as part of our commitment to developing a modern, world class curriculum, we are launching an after-school programme called AMBIT.  Our first pilot of AMBIT will launch on Monday 11th November and run for 6 weeks until Monday 16th December from 2.45pm to 4.15pm. On Monday 16th December there will be a Parent Showcase event. 

  • There is no cost for participation for students eligible for Pupil Premium.  If your daughter is eligible for Pupil Premium, please click here to register for a code. For this pilot, TGS are able to cover the full cost.

The Ancient Greek meaning of Ambit is ‘wingspan’. It is our intention to widen the wingspan of our students and help them discover spheres of interest once unknown to them. To help them boldly discover a new world for themselves. Townley Ambit will provide students with a wide range of extracurricular opportunities which complement Townley 21c. The Ambit programme will take place on Monday afternoons, providing students with a bespoke, expert and interest led compendium of experiences.

Thank you to all the parents and students who have completed the consultation survey.
