Further Information

The Friends of Bishop Gilpin are delighted to announce the date & theme of this year's Summer Fair - 'Beside The Seaside' Saturday 18th May (12pm - 3pm).

Always a fun day, this year you can expect a bouncy castle, go-karts, raffle & hampers, traditional games, bottle & chocolate tombola, face painting, craft stall, Robert & Edwards BBQ, ice creams and LOTS more!

In addition, this year we are very excited to announce we will be running three x30 minute 'Mad Science' shows, (please buy your tickets online) to take place at 12.30pm, 1.15pm & 2.00pm on the day.

Here's what you can expect from the shows: Spectacular science shows bring kids and science together in an unforgettable event! Mad Science special events are spectacular science-themed shows designed to amaze and entertain audiences. Children learn about science when they see foggy dry ice storms, float on a Mad Science hovercraft, watch a foam factory at work, discover Bernoulli's principle, make magic mud, alter sound waves, and so much more! Shows are suitable for all ages and all children must be accompanied by a ticket holding adult.

We will have a mufti day on Friday 17th May, the day before the fair, with children coming to school in home clothes, in exchange for bringing in a 'stick of rock' (using a kitchen roll, filled with treats, wrapped & sealed, designed in candy stripe colours, or however they would like!). These will then be sold by the teachers at the fair the following day.

2018-2019 Fundraising Total. We are hoping to raise another £40K in this academic year. These funds will continue to go to Bishop Gilpin's refurb of all the school toilets and a new sound proof music pod.

Can you help?

We can’t put on these amazing events without your help. If you can help us, we still need the following volunteers:
