The Gower tells tale of 'fantastic' 2022–23

Welcome to The Gower, the annual publication of the UCS Foundation. This year-in-review magazine charts the 2022–23 academic year as we experienced it in the Senior School, Junior Branch and Pre-Prep.

So much activity, challenge and endeavour was crammed into our small corner of NW3 during the past 12 months – and you can read about it here:

This year we have included a special spotlight on the return of school trips and residentials post pandemic, bringing excitement and opportunity for pupils right across the school. We also have a feature on universities and the destinations of this year’s leavers, as well as two long reads contributed by two of our Old Gowers. This, after all, is a publication written by, and for, members of our community, past and present.

USC Headmaster, Mark Beard, said: “I hope that you will enjoy reading this sample portrait of UCS life in 2022–23. I trust that it conveys the fantastic education and amazing opportunities that we endeavour to provide for pupils, as well as their happiness and enjoyment of school: something we set such great store by.”

Communications Manager, Rebecca Barrie, added: “We hope that you will enjoy reading this latest issue – the second instalment of The Gower since the publication was redesigned and restructured. It is our intention to give readers a feel for life across the UCS Foundation, from Pre-Prep to Junior Branch via Frognal – as the crow flies! – as it unfolded during the last academic year. Thank you to our contributors… and to our readers!”

This edition of The Gower bears the same look and feel as the ‘new-look’ 2022 issue, and because of our commitment to sustainability, it is being shared primarily in electronic form. If you would like to receive a hard copy next year, but did not this year, then please contact [email protected].
