Creative Activities

Backstage Arts Club

Backstage Arts refers to our behind-the-scenes activities in theatre, dance, music, and other performance arts. These arts play a crucial role in enhancing creativity and expression; for our club, this involves the lighting, audio, and stage management of stage productions at QM.

The club provides an outlet for our pupils to showcase their talents and express their ideas, which can be both therapeutic and empowering. Additionally, participating in Backstage Arts helps develop a range of skills including teamwork, communication, time management, and problem-solving.

The process of putting together a performance requires coordination and collaboration between pupils, teaching staff and technicians, which fosters a real sense of community and helps strengthen social bonds within the school.

LVI Advanced Cookery Skills

This enrichment activity gives girls the opportunity to improve their meal planning and cooking skills. It is the perfect opportunity for them to become more confident in understanding recipes, time management, menu planning, food presentation, and food safety and hygiene, and it encourages independence so they can prepare their own healthy meals.

Photography Club

You don't just take a photograph, you MAKE it. Come to Photography Club to build your skills for making great images.

From technical details to creative thinking, we will explore all the opportunities you have to use your camera - and your phone!

Photography is one of the four A Level Art subjects you can study at Queen Margaret's, so this club offers students a chance to build skills and enjoy the subject and consider if it is a good one for you at A Level.

Painting Club

Open to all year groups, Painting Club encourages students to work on their own personally motivated pieces. With the guidance of painting expert Mrs Colman, students are given the opportunity to hone skills and techniques in a range of paint media, from watercolour and acrylic to oil paint.

Fun warm-up activities get the creative juices flowing before embarking on more developed works. No prior experience or perceived skill needed - this is a chance to explore the wonderful medium of paint!

Gardening Club

Whether you are already a green-fingered goddess or just curious about growing your own plants, get involved with Gardening Club for the chance to sow, tend and harvest your very own fruit and vegetables!

We are big into nature, and have great plans for our little garden and wildlife area, so come along and see what you can grow.

Life Drawing

LVI students studying A Level Art subjects are encouraged to take part in Life Drawing, providing them with the skill to observe and record the human body as a three-dimensional form.

This is a fundamental experience in every young artist's training, and it is a wonderful opportunity to explore this skill at Queen Margaret's alongside A Level projects. For those considering any creative pathway in the future, the Life Drawing is a highly encouraged and favoured component of the portfolio.

Science Club is so much fun. It's really 'hands-on' and the experiments help me to understand the theory!
