When Spring Turns To Summer – Termly Round Up
Posted on 18 April 2019 by Miss Emily Acton-Edmiston
As we prepare for the Summer Term beginning next week, we take a look back at last term’s academic highlights, sporting achievements and whole host of other activities throughout the Junior and Senior Schools.
This year’s Science Week saw the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) teach Senior School pupils all about gases including liquid nitrogen, with a stunning and dramatic show in the mews to round it off. Our Junior School pupils met all sorts of creepy crawlies with Zoolab and the Medical Mavericks returned to enlighten older pupils about their anatomies and the world of medicine.
This year’s Remove Showcase was a rainforest-themed delight with a pertinent message about the importance of looking after our planet. The Senior School impressed us all in their production of Great Expectations at RADA studios; and in February, we celebrated Chinese New Year in support of the Queen’s Gate Foundation with a special celebration evening.
Our Model United Nations pupils showed their strengths yet again, winning highly commended, distinguished and best delegate awards at a number of competitions including Merchant Taylor’s MUN and Haberdashers’ Aske’s MUN, where they chaired and debated over a number of complex subjects.
The girls continue to impress with their sporting ability across a number of disciplines; most notably the U18 fencing team, who won gold at the British Fencing Championships.
And of course, it would not be a Queen’s Gate term without a little bit of dressing up! Many an outfit was donned for World Book Day and for a number of charity events; including a lunch time Zumba-thon in aid of The British Heart Foundation and Blue Cross.

We look forward to seeing what the Summer Term has in store!
