Imogen also has completed her Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award, plays in the St George’s netball team and was Widow Corney in the School’s recent production of Oliver.  Imogen will play Madame Thenardier in Les Miserables in the autumn and has played Maria, a kitchen maid, at Eton College.  She has also been devising a GCSE drama piece about mothers losing their children in which she played a teenage mother who had to undergo an abortion.

 Alannah Horswell (16) from Ascot achieved 9 A*s and 3 As – a total of 93 points in her GCSE exams.  Alannah, who is a keen polo player and recently won the Bettina Bahlsen Cup on 18 July 2015, also plays for the St George’s school polo team, as well as in a local team with her cousins and sister.  Alannah teaches polo every Sunday and goes to Spain for the whole of August, where she plays most days at Sotogrande.  Alannah is both an academic and a music scholar at St George’s, has grade 6 singing, is studying for grade 5 piano and is a grade 4 clarinettist.  She sings in the school’s Chapel Choir and will be playing Jean Val Jean – the lead in Les Miserables - this autumn.  Alannah has also performed as Mr Bumble in Oliver, as Romeo in Romeo and Juliet and as Mrs Milcoat in Eton College’s production of Coram Boy.  She wants to be a music lawyer and is aiming to become fluent in Spanish this summer.  Alannah was the also one of the first pairs of students at St George’s to go on the Australian exchange, spending three months at St Catherine’s School, Toorak in Melbourne.

Commenting on the impressive results St George’s School Headmistress, Rachel Owens said:  “We are fortunate here at St George’s that we have some inspirational staff who excite intellectual curiosity and provide a stimulating and happy environment which is ideal for learning.  Coupled with small class sizes and attention for individual needs, it is not surprising that students here are able to achieve some pretty impressive results and can take advantage of the exceptional range of co-curricular activities on offer.

 “Students like Alannah and Imogen who input greatly into all the activities on offer and really give back to the community deserve to do really well.  Sometimes challenges in life bring out the best in our students and motivate them to succeed and these girls become a real inspiration to the younger pupils.”
