The AGS Art Fair and Christmas Market
I know, I know, it’s only October but if Tesco can sell you advent calendars then we can tell you about our fantastic Art Fair and Christmas Market. And what’s more, entry is completely free for everyone. Here’s what you need to know.
1. It’s at AGS on Saturday 18th November, 10.30am – 3.30pm
2. It will raise money for the school but only with your support
Seventy artists and crafters from across Buckinghamshire will be showing and selling their work. Our Art Café will be ready with delicious bakes and tempting treats. And there will be some amazing craft and artisan demonstrations including pottery and stonemasonry.
So, come along with the whole family for a truly brilliant event. You’ll get yourself organised for Christmas and help raise vital funds for AGS.
Can’t wait to see you there and may we be the first to wish you a very Happy Christmas.
Year 7 Laser
This is a brilliant way for new boys to hang out with their new friends and make others by shooting them with lasers. A hugely popular event ever year.
Art and Craft FairThe AGS Art and Craft Fair - now in its 24th year - showcases around 80 local artists, displaying and selling their works over a weekend. The event kicks off with a preview night for VIPs and artists and then is opened up to the public. As well as paintings and sculpture exhibits, there is a Craft Fair running alongside the event. For more information, or if you would like to exhibit yourself or take a craft stall, please visit the Art Show Website

Curry & Quiz NightWhy not join us for our popular annual quiz night. Simply put yourselves into a team of up to eight or just come along and join us and we will allocate you to a team on the night. Everyone is welcome and the ticket price includes a tasty meal. There is also an open bar on the night. We are sure you will have a great evening at an event that is always a sell-out. Come along and show everyone just where your sons got the brains to get them into Grammar School! We look forward to beating (sorry meeting!) you there! Look out for details in the PTA newsletter.
PaintballingThe whole school annual paintball day is held at Sabotage Paintball near Swanbourne, between Milton Keynes and Winslow. We have the whole site to ourselves so the organisers design the programme to suit us, and we can take up to 60 participants - pupils, parents, teachers, friends. The laser event is restricted to 135 participants. We also encourage the High School/Mums/sisters to come along and bring some girlfriends!

RafflesThe PTA holds two major raffles each year - one during the Autumn term to be drawn at Christmas and one during the Summer Term to be drawn at the Fete. All parents are sent tickets via the boys so please do look out for them as they tend to get lost in bags. There are many prizes for each raffle with the first three printed on each ticket. If anybody has any unwanted christmas presents they wish to donate for any of our raffles - we are always happy to accept them
