Welcome to GFS Bearwood

We are a fun weekly group for local girls aged 7-14. The group is run by an amazing team of trained volunteers who run different activities with us every week.

We do loads of different things at our sessions, and there’s more about the GFS programme and how it helps girls try new things and build confidence here, but here are some examples:

    • Team challenges so we can learn to work together
    • Crafts to celebrate calendar events
    • Trips that help us learn independence
    • Games and sports to get us active
    • Just having loads of laughs and fun without any worries

For our older groups we provide advice and workshops on a variety of topics, as well as encouraging them to see themselves as leaders of younger girls.

Everyone is welcome at GFS Bearwood and being kind to one another is at the heart of our group – we all benefit so much from the friends we make here. If you’d like your child to come along and see what GFS is all about, just fill out the registration form and one of our volunteers will get in touch with you right away.

If you have any questions about the group, our post-COVID return, or anything else, please feel free to contact us on bearwood@girlsfriendlysociety.org.uk

This group includes some elements of faith.

Weekly Fee

GFS is a registered charity, and does not operate to make a profit. Weekly session fees, or ‘subs’ help to pay for costs such as insurance, venue hire and resources. Subs are paid weekly to ensure you don’t pay for sessions that your child doesn’t attend.

The fee at GFS Bearwood is £1 per week.

GFS is an inclusive organisation and we welcome any girl or young woman that would like to join. The cost of sessions should not be a barrier to attendance, and GFS is happy to accommodate a break from session fees where helpful. If this applies to you, you will be able to let us know when you complete the sign up form.
