Head of English, Rory Harris, been selected as one of Penguin’s 2023 Lit in Colour Pioneers! He is currently completing a doctorate at Bristol University on ‘opening up’ the English literature curriculum and was delighted when a huge donation of over 400 books, including over 250 individual titles, arrived at QEH at the end of term.

QEH, together with Penguin Books UK, Pearson and The Runnymede Trust, are committed to highlighting the importance of a diverse English Literature curriculum.

“It’s essential that students are given access to books by black, Asian and minority ethnic writers and those from a range of backgrounds, to ensure a better reflection of contemporary culture and society, to provide students with both experiences beyond their own, and experiences that may resonate with them,” stated Rory Harris.

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.

Marshmallows and Peer Support!

We are immensely grateful for your teaching, support and guidance. My daughter’s had a terrific time at QEH. Results day made us very proud of course; and the warmth and mutual respect of staff and students filled the room. The environment at QEH has helped my daughter grow, be challenged, and really learn about herself and the world. Thank you again, and may the school continue to thrive.
