During the second half of term our rugby programme has been fortunate to have hugely benefitted from the input of a number of Bristol Bears players and coaches.  

They have visited and worked with teams from our 1st XV down to our U12’s and have helped to develop our player’s individual skills and team structure.  

I am incredibly grateful to the coaches and players from Bristol Bears that have visited us over the course of the term. The coaching they have delivered has been outstanding. The students have gained a huge amount from a technical and tactical point of view. Additionally, their visits provided real inspiration for our students and gave them a real boost going into the latter stages of the rugby term.  

Furthermore, our coaches and rugby programme have learnt a huge amount from their visits. One of my objectives when I took on the role of Head of Rugby was to ensure that we took learnings from the elite end of the game to ensure that we stay up-to-date and innovative in what we do. These visits have helped significantly in that area.  

Overall, what I have been most impressed by throughout the duration of the visits is how humble, genuine, and caring the Bristol Bears players and coaches have been. They are extremely busy people with demanding schedules, yet they have readily regularly volunteered to come in and work with our students. AJ McGinty even came to watch Year 7 at Failand on a Saturday after working with them on the Monday before! We at QEH are incredibly grateful for their help and support and wish them all the best for this season and beyond.” 

Jordan Cox, QEH Head of Rugby 

It’s fantastic to be able to get in to QEH and bring in some of the current Bears players in to help coach the different age groups. The kids and staff are great to work with. The club’s vision is to inspire the community through Rugby success and for me seeing the Year 7s engage with Callum, Harry, AJ, Jake and Rich on the training pitch is what that is all about. Coaching and having fun!  

The Bears players love helping the younger generation and are always keen to come in whenever time allows. I hope this can be a regular fixture!

Ollie is a QEH 'lifer', as he joined QEH Juniors in Year 3, eleven years ago.  It's been great to watch his development through the years, both on and off the pitch.

Thank you Friends of QEH!

As well as being Head of Religion and Philosophy, Zak leads our digital vision. He was instrumental in developing our excellent online learning offering during lockdown, much to the relief of our parents, and is now leading the roll out of our school device programme.

On stage!

Year 11, 12 and 13 Art students went to the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford for a tour by Clare Cory, the Learning Officer for Secondary and Young People. It was her first tour since lockdown so she was particularly energised and enthusiastic with the group!

We just wanted to write and say how genuinely delighted we are having moved our son to QEH. We have been so impressed by everything he has done and how everyone has been so interested and kind - all boys and teachers! It’s hard to describe to people what we like about it so much but in comparison to other schools it just has that something extra - almost like a sparkle! It’s a shame we can’t send our daughter just yet!
