"Join us for the first half of an epic journey through the greatest story ever told. The tale of Pip, Charles Dickens' mighty "Great Expectations" will straddle the two ends of this academic year. Part One of this two-part adaptation will be performed next week on Thursday 30 November and Friday 1 December in the Main Hall at 7pm. (Please note the earlier than usual start time). Part Two will form our Trinity Term drama production in July 2018. Lose yourself in the interlocking destinies of some of the most celebrated characters in English Literature, brought to life by a huge and eclectic cast drawn from students in every year group in the school and with a record number of teaching staff mining their thespian talent! This promises to be a very special evening of live theatre."

Golfers Gain Great Ground!

Year 10 pupil, James Andrews finished second in the Lancashire U15 Boys Championship out a field of over 80 golfers at Blackburn Golf Club recently.

James carded a superb round of 5 over par; his round of 76 gross was only bettered by one shot.  QEGS have not had a top 3 finisher in this prestigious event since 1999!  This was achieved after a horrible double bogey on the first hole; James was able to recover his composure and play some excellent golf throughout the rest of the round.

Ahmad Musa also played fantastic golf to record a gross score of 92, which resulted in a nett score of 67. This enabled him to finish 4th out of the 80 golfers from around the county in the handicap event - a truly remarkable effort for a year 8 pupil playing for the school in his first ever golf event.

Max Powter (Year 9) also played well on the day, scoring a 3 over par nett score of 74.

Overall, it was an excellent day for our golfers who represented the school brilliantly, both on and off the course.

Well done to these three boys, it was a pleasure to watch you play!
