For example:
gap> g:=SP(4,Integers mod 32);
Sp(4,Z/32Z)
gap> gens:=GeneratorsOfGroup(g);;
gap> geni:=List(gens,m->List(m,r->List(r,Int)));; # generators as Z matrices
gap> geni:=List(gens,m->List(m,r->List(r,Int)))*Z(2); # move to GF(2)
gap> h:=Group(geni);
<matrix group with 6 generators>
gap> hom:=GroupHomomorphismByImagesNC(g,h,gens,geni);
(note that the last command will take a bit.)

May I plug my paper ``Computing generators of groups preserving a bilinear form over residue class rings’’, J.Symb.Comp, 50 (2013), 298-307. DOI 10.1016/j.jsc.2012.08.002
Concerning the structure of these groups, you also might find theorem 2.5 in the joint paper
https://arxiv.org/abs/1611.05921
(to appear in Math.Comp.) useful.
Best wishes,
