During the Olympic and Paralympic Games, QM welcomed 3,233 guests, the Octagon became the QM base for Team GB and our halls were home to over 26 countries! Guests ranged from trainers, coaches, mechanics and physiotherapists to press and media and even some athletes including Mo Farah, who stayed with us for a few nights leading up to his 5000m gold medal performance!
It was an amazing, exciting time for the College and its success is a credit to the hard work and dedication of the staff who made it all happen. Teams worked relentlessly to ensure our guests received the best service possible. Extra hours, early starts and long days became standard.
Now is your chance to own a little piece of 'the Games' in the ‘Remains of the Games’ raffle! There are over 100 prizes to be won including Team GB official merchandise such as hoodies, towels, umbrellas and t-shirts!!
