Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle

Welcome to Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School and thank you for visiting our website.  I hope that your visit enables you to capture the essence of our vibrant and dynamic school community. As well as being extremely proud of the school’s long history, I am equally impressed with the range of activities our students get involved in. It is a privilege to lead this remarkable school; students who are friendly, ambitious and creative; staff who are dedicated, caring and talented. Our standards are high; we expect every member of the community to aspire to be the best they can be.

Mrs H. Payne, Head Teacher

On the weekend of 11th – 12th October, Georgina Hadley took part in one of the five International Irish Dancing Championships that are held each year.  Georgina produced an outstanding performance, gaining a position that placed her in the top twenty competitors on the international stage.  A personal best gave Georgina 12th place overall (and also 4th British girl).  Her hard work, determination and intensive training (up to 18 hours per week) has seen her gain 62 ranking places in just a year.  She has qualified to represent England at the World Championships to be held during the Easter Holidays in USA next year.

Irish Dancing is an athletic art form that teaches true competitive spirit, resilience and determination as well as great comradery, respect and hard work.  Georgina’s successes proves that nothing in life can be achieved without effort! Well done, Georgina. Below is a photograph of Georgina performing in the competition.
