Raising funds for global causes – and setting new world records!

Last year, we shared the news that the entire staff and student community at Altrincham Grammar School for Girls had held a fund-raising game of musical bumps, and that they hoped to break the world record for the largest game ever held.

And now, we are delighted to advise that AGGS has officially been named the world record holder for the largest game of musical bumps! Over 1330 individuals took part, smashing the existing record by over 400 people.

The game was held to raise money for The Ocean Clean Up Campaign, which aims to tackle the 1,000 most polluting rivers, responsible for around 80% of the ocean plastic pollution, before the end of 2025. Every penny counts so we are delighted to announce that the school raised over £1,700 for this cause which is wholeheartedly supported by our eco-conscious students.  A great charity to get behind and a wonderful way to all work together. Bravo!
