Following the success of her two coaching sessions, four-time Olympian, Chemmy Alcott, has launched our QAS ski team.

Over the past two Sundays, Chemmy has run training sessions for up to 20 girls from L4 to U5. In her words she was “blown away” by the standard of the skiing and the progression over the two weeks, as the girls put on their race faces and attacked the slalom. It was also great to hear her comment on how polite, enthusiastic and motivated all the girls were. Without exception every girl improved their times after four hours of coaching over the two weeks.

Chemmy has now invited the group to join her in the snow at one of her race training camps in Switzerland before Christmas and over the New Near. We will also be running further local training in January and February for all girls who want to.

A small team will be selected to represent Queen Anne’s at the Artemis Inter-Schools Challenge in Pila, Italy in March 2019. More news on that will follow. Next year we hope to enter more teams into more races!

In the meantime if you would like more information about the Queen Anne’s School ski team, or would like to get involved, please contact Nicola Burley, the Director of Sport.





Dance Progress Showcase

Friday 2 November was the first evening of dance performances for this academic year and it started off with the progress dance showcase. Around 40 girls from across all year groups took part and displayed work in progress from clubs, curriculum lessons and ISTD examination work.

There was a variety of work from advanced one modern, to A level solos by our Upper Sixth, to musical theatre style dance . These pieces displayed how much work and effort the girls had put into learning the choreography since September. These dancers will perform again later in the year and display the progress they have made over the year.
