Celebrate our 150th anniversary by funding a square foot or more of the glass floor

Today we are asking you to celebrate our 150th Anniversary by giving £150 to fund a square foot of the glass floor that will form the centrepiece of our Activity Centre. Your square foot could be the one from which our captain leaps to score the winning goal in the Surrey Schools’ Netball Finals. It could be where our Head Girl stands to address the entire school and a First Year student hears her words and is inspired to one day do the same. It could be where a young Georgian picks up a hockey stick for the first time and begins a life-long love of the sport. This could be your square foot of glass floor. It costs £150. Or you could fund more and make more amazing things happen.

Light years ahead of the game

As the first school in the UK with a glass floor, we expect this amazing high-performance surface to give us a real competitive edge. It will also be a significant draw for Sport’s National Governing Bodies to use to showcase their sports, helping to build the profile of our school.

 

Clear advantages for students

Because the floor is so flexible, and so hardwearing, many hours will be saved on maintenance and covering the floor for other activities, such as school fairs. This means that it will be available to more students, for a longer period of time.

 

With your help, we will be the first school in the UK with a glass floor

The centrepiece of our new Activity Centre will be a state-of-the-art glass sports floor and St George’s will be the first UK school to have one, with your help. Your gift of £150 will fund a square foot of this incredible floor. Your support will mean that courts can be switched on individually via a touchscreen. The floor is hardwearing enough to be used for exams, school fairs and concerts, and large enough to accommodate every single one of our 1,600 pupils and 400 staff at all-school gatherings.

 

Your name in lights

As a thank you for your donation, you will be recognised on a unique interactive touch screen display within the Activity Centre. Tap in your details and your name will light up on an interactive screen version of our state-of-the-art glass sports floor in recognition of your help in making this innovative sports floor a reality. A full list of all donors will also be displayed along with some examples of the court lines to show you how the real LED court lines will look on the glass floor!
