Entrepreneurs of the future

One of our Year 6 pupils decided that the school needed new school sports kit to wear during the Town and County sports events to be held during June. Together with her friend, over £295 has been raised by handcrafting bookmarks and key rings which have been sold at various events. They have also raised money through organising cake sales.

We are really proud of the independence that these pupils have shown and of their hard work and dedication in achieving their aim. Amazing team spirit – well done girls!

Character Award

Congratulations to all of the children who received character awards today. We now have a lot of Year 3 pupils who have earned their first badge through repeatedly demonstrating strength of character within the school community.


Seasonal hampers

The hampers made by the PTA this morning all look wonderful! Many thanks to all of our PTA members for their time and effort to create these prizes and also for their support at the discos yesterday, which continued to be well attended and enjoyed by all.

Tickets are still available for the hampers with the lucky winners being chosen at random on Monday in each class.


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.



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¬†competition and represented our school extremely well.


World Book Day

We are all very excited about World Book Day tomorrow. We will have a theatre company coming into school who will put on a show for all pupils and also run workshops for Year 6 about the technicalities of production. Children will also participate in literary themed learning throughout the day, which will include working with pupils in other year groups.

Pupils (and teachers!) are welcome to come to school in book themed fancy dress or in pyjamas.
