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 at the age of 11 for their senior schools.
St Gabriel's Ski Trip
In January a group of 43 girls accompanied by 6 members of staff set out to Italy on the school skiing trip.
On our arrival in Courmayeur we were fitted for skis and boots before tucking into a delicious pizza lunch. We then went to the hotel to unpack and rest ready to ski the next day.
The next morning we woke up bright and early and set off for the slopes where we met our instructors and had a brilliant day of skiing in the sun. For the rest of the week the skiing just got better and better as we pushed ourselves to new limits in order to improve our skiing and despite one day of relatively heavy snow the weather was on our side.
Our evenings were taken up with aprés ski activities such as shopping, ice cream night, karaoke, pizza night, a disco and a presentation evening. My favourite was the disco because it was fun dressing up and being in a proper nightclub with all the other Interski groups.
We arrived back exhausted but in high spirits after a great trip.
