Mia and Connie, the Brains of Year 9, channel their Inner Minerva, Roman Goddess of Wisdom!

The Year 9 Trip to Bath this year clearly had Minerva smiling on the Classics Department, as the sun shone (for the most part) and Aquae Sulis looked as magnificent as always. Mia in particular showed a phenomenal depth of Classical knowledge in the teaching session, to the extent that the wonderful James, who delivered the session, asked what her sources were. (Apparently Rick Riordan, amongst other things, has been very useful.) The girls took photos with the Governor and Roman soldier, the waters were tasted ('It tastes of blood' and 'It tastes of metal' were the common responses) and coins were thrown into the cold plunge so that wishes could be made.

Even Mrs Sim would have been proud, as some major mental calculations from Jennifer  and co. worked out how many litres rise per second if 1,170,000 litres rise per day.

Mrs Alexander (not related to 'The Great, of Greece'... as far as we know) ensured that all ran smoothly and thus a good time was had by all.

Visitors to St Gabriel's quickly recognise that this is no ordinary school. Parents are always impressed by the sense of purpose and enthusiasm of the talented, committed staff and the confidence of the extremely happy pupils. We offer girls the opportunity for a seamless journey from Nursery through to Sixth Form, with our boys leaving us at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
