Your output (parts):

Modell 1: Fixed-effects, mit 12 Beobachtungen
Mit 4 Querschnittseinheiten
ZeitreihenlÀnge = 3
AbhÀngige Variable: TestGrade
Weggelassen wg. exakter KollinearitÀt: Joe Sue Mark

So if I interpret your setup correctly, you told gretl to include unit 
fixed effects (hence gretl's description as "Fixed-effects"), and then 
you manually created and included unit dummies "Joe", "Sue", and "Mark". 
So effectively you're throwing in two sets of identical (or collinear) 
unit dummies. Of course they're collinear then and gretl throws them out 
because of that.

(The fact that the calculation is done with the within transformation 
doesn't matter for this problem.)
