Following an exciting competition for students to compose a new school song, Miss Anand arranged a very special visit to a music studio to record the winning entry, Unity.  Victoria, Joyce, Marvel, Danielle, Pelumi and Emily (all of 9I) submitted the entry considered not only a very musically accomplished song but the one that summed up the ethos and spirit of WGSG. 

Each girl performed her part individually then together they added harmonies and percussion.  In the girls own words “we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  Listening back to the recording we were amazed by how the song sounded and how it reflected our feelings towards the school and we are very proud of our accomplishments”.   And so they should be, it’s wonderful!  You can hear the girls perform Unity by following this link to our website gallery HERE where you’ll be able to play a slide show to accompany the song.

One of our alumni, Alice Brown, invited her WGSG teacher Mrs Sawyer to attend her final exhibition & showcase at her university, The Royal Central School of Speech & Drama.  Alice is already building an extensive portfolio with high profile placements including costume assistant on Ellie Goulding’s tour and as wardrobe mistress on a production of Wuthering Heights.  It was lovely to be involved as Alice launches her career.
