We had 44 character awards to give out in today’s celebration assembly – this smashed the record from a few weeks ago! Congratulations to everyone who received their badges today. We look forward to seeing you proudly showing them on your return to QPA after half term.
The Year 6 netball team performed really well this afternoon in their match against St Luke’s, winning 8-6. Great teamwork was evident across the court and the players supported each other incredibly well. Go Team Tagg!
83 pupils of our Year 3 pupils had a wonderful time at Leeson House this week. Despite the cold, the children took part in all activities with enthusiasm and focus.
Many thanks to the staff team who gave up their free time to enable the visit to happen, particularly to our king of residentials, Mr Murray.
We had 5 more reading Bingo winners today. Congratulations on your achievement!
Yesterday saw the High Five netball squad A.K.A. ‘Team Tagg’ face their first ever inter-school netball tournament at Bournemouth School for Girls. Over twenty local schools took part in the exciting event on a beautiful, if somewhat chilly, afternoon.
After only a few practice sessions, the committed team of Year Six girls secured their first victory in their opening match! As the afternoon unfolded the team demonstrated their strength of character: grit whilst facing Arctic like temperatures; adaptability when continuously changing pitches and rotating team positions; optimism as they constantly remained positive, even in the face of Olympian like opposition.
The whole squad were a credit to QPA and it was wonderful to watch the quality of their game progress throughout the afternoon. The next match for the team is on Thursday 8th February. If there are any pupils wishing to join the team then please see either Miss Tagg or Mrs Wallis.

1. Find a hobby that you love and practise.
2. Work hard.
3. Have fun!
4. Be curious and always willing to learn.
5. Take the opportunities.
We have our first bingo winner in only 2 weeks. What a fantastic achievement to have read 6 full books in this time, very well done!
