We are delighted that our all-weather pitch is now almost complete. Thank you to everyone who has helped us reach this point. It has taken nearly 5 years from idea to build and we are grateful to all the students, families, businesses, external agencies and charitable trusts who recognised how important this would be to a great number of people and the community of Garstang.

The pitch will be officially opened on Saturday 8th September marking the start of the school’s 60th birthday celebrations and we are thrilled to have a very special guest to open the pitch – an England Hockey Olympic Medallist!

It would be lovely to see lots of people come along to mark the occasion. You may even get to touch an Olympic medal!!


We have been selling pitch squares at £10, £20 and £30 but have a few still available. It is not too late for you to help us fund equipment for the pitch. All pitch square owners will have their name on a permanent display board in recognition of your support. Secure your square now on Parentmail. Last day to be an official part of this legacy is Saturday 8th September.


We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 8th September. GCA students will be taking part in exhibition sports from 9.30-11.30, followed by the official opening and then we will welcome Garstang Hockey Club to their new Home and they will continue the day of Sport.
