The Griffin Arts Festival (GAF) is the annual June celebration of the arts across each Griffin Schools Trust (GST) school.

The Griffin Arts Festival was set up in 2014, to acknowledge the importance of the arts to our founders who value the creative as much as the academic in the lives of our children, young people and the adults who work with them. We continue to deliver rich, artistic experiences for our children and colleagues on themes that are engaging and challenging.

How does the festival manifest itself in school?

A week of art activities across every GST school, with the normal timetable suspended and an innovative and exciting programme planned and delivered for every single GST child and young person.

Art can help us understand not just ourselves but the times we live in

Contrast – our celebration of difference.

This year our Griffin Arts Festival is all about ????.  Contrast brings diversity, it champions and compliments difference. Without contrast there is no uniqueness. Now is the perfect time to take a step back, look up and celebrate the inspiring and glorious artistic contributions that enrich our lives. Let’s celebrate together and bring our community together for our annual festival. Our celebration of difference!

Help make the difference

GAF is currently solely funded by the schools and GST. It is through the hard work of our staff that GAF has been such a great success.

As GAF grows, we want to sustain the quality of experiences each students receives during the two weeks. By donating to GAF you are helping our students see beyond their immediate surroundings and become exposed to the wonders of classical art.
