EHS girls from Prep and Senior departments were a credit to the school when they competed in the Leamington Spa Competitive Music Festival with Craig Ogden (Classic FM star and head of Guitar at RNCM) adjudicating the guitar section of the competition.
EHS had prize winners in every single category of the competition that the girls took part in. Craig Ogden commented on the high standard of the students at EHS and Miss Larner was proud of all the girls who took part.
