Many thanks to Dr Gemmell who supported in Year 6 with their ‘Blood Heart’ topic this afternoon. The pupils were captivated at the live dissection of the heart and learned a huge amount about the role of this organ in the human body’s circulatory system.



The 55 children who performed in the performance of Annie at The Bishop of Winchester Academy represented QPA incredibly well this week. Many thanks to the parents for supporting this collaboration, to the children for their hard work and to Mr Pickett for his leadership of the event.


Egyptians WOW day

Year 5 went back in time to Ancient Egypt yesterday. Adults and children immersed themselves in the past by dressing up and taking part in a wide variety of activities, including a performance from a visiting theatre company with an associated workshop and creating a sarcophagus.


Congratulations to our Year 6 netballers who yesterday achieved the feat of becoming the second best team in Bournemouth at the primary league finals.

Although losing to St. Walburga’s Primary in the final, our pupils won their semi-final match against St. James’ Academy and have made huge progress over the last year under the tutorage of Miss Tagg and Mrs Wallis. They showed true grit throughout the┬ácompetition and represented our school extremely well.



Many thanks to Ms Drew for coming and talking to our School Council today about standing as a candidate for a local constituency. It was really interesting for the children to link their own election to office at QPA to national elections. Our children put themselves forwards for their positions to make a positive change and it is no different for the many candidates for office across the country, regardless of political persuasion.
