Chinese Minister Counsellor Jin Xu Visit

On Friday, 20 January, we were delighted to welcome the Chinese Economic & Commercial Minister, Counsellor Jin Xu to St Gabriel’s. Mr Xu, who was a guest of Newbury MP, Richard Benyon, was keen to see how Mandarin is taught alongside three other modern foreign languages at St Gabriel’s. He spent some time with the Principal, Mr Ricki Smith, before joining a Year 9 Mandarin class where he demonstrated his calligraphy skills.


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.
