    Year 8 student Molly Wallwork treated the audience to a couple of pieces on the piano which she’d recently performed for her grade 4 exam.

    Headteacher, Mrs Martin, spoke of students who have ‘gone the extra mile’ and highlights from the year, and the recent Ofsted inspection – this was accompanied by a video featuring a team of student ‘inspectors’ inspecting the school.

    Prize winners were announced by Mr Garrity, Associate Headteacher and prizes were awarded by the guest of honour and former QEGS student – Steven Hind.
