Summer Term Excellence Book

Senior School

07 July 2023

We are constantly amazed by the high quality of work produced by pupils of all ages here at EHS. In recognition of that talent and hard work, each term teachers are asked to nominate outstanding or excellent work to the Excellence Book. This term, we have once again seen work of an extraordinarily high calibre produced by girls in every year and across a range of subjects. Congratulations to the following students in the Senior School and Sixth Form for some exceptional work.

Alyzah has written an impressive book review in Spanish about the novel ‘The Shadow of the Wind’ by Carlos Ruiz Zafón – not only did she read the whole book in Spanish but she also wrote a detailed, well-structured and informative book review in Spanish, demonstrating a level similar to A level students. This is highly commendable. Well done!
