Willow Sculpture Project at the Lower School

The beautiful grounds of the Lower School have been brought to life with the addition of some wonderful willow sculptures, depicting the vibrancy and fun of school life at Queen's.

Artist Sarah Gallagher worked with groups of pupils to design and then weave the sculptures, which can now be enjoyed at different locations across the school site. The sculptures represent some of the activities enjoyed at Queen's, from a twirling ballerina to a skipping school girl, complete with ribbons in her ponytails!

The girls worked patiently and collaboratively to complete the sculptures, including a large willow Queen which will be used to grow beautiful flowers and will welcome visitors at the front of the school for many years to come.

Following her visit, Sarah said: "Thank you so much for a wonderful three days in school. The staff and children were truly delightful to work with. I have to say in my 20 years of going into schools I have never been into such a happy workplace; the staff and children are a true credit to you."
