Careers in Languages

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.

Languages students were very lucky to have Ulrike Zitzlsperger and Fiona Cox, German and French professors from Exeter University visit QEH earlier this month

QEH pupils from years 9 up to 13 heard about a wide range of topics, including the key skills that are developed when studying languages and the possibilities for language learning at university.

The professors also dispelled some myths, for example that the studying of languages leads to far more than teaching and interpreting; in fact 85% of their language graduates go into other fields of work, ranging from journalism to engineering.

The talks even prompted some discussions in lessons that followed, whereby students expressed their surprise at the many benefits studying a language can have for their future career prospects.

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.

Huge congratulations to Mark who has joined the top 2% of the population as a member of Mensa. In typical modest fashion, Mark sat the test on a recent weekend and didn't mention it to any of his teachers!

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!

My boys have loved QEH!  They felt at home so quickly and really enjoyed being able to be themselves with like-minded lads.  The teachers really 'got' them and, although they're very different characters, QEH brought out the best in both of them.
