GTS Transition Leaders 2022


We are extremely proud to introduce our Transition Leaders 2022. This group of young people have gone through a rigorous application and interview process to secure their place as a leader at GTS.


Throughout the transition process they will be working alongside our staff to ensure all our Year 6 feel comfortable and happy as they move into GTS.
