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.

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!

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.

Pupils have led the way in recognising differences within the school, by setting up groups for those of particular faith or for gender differences and they are very supportive of each other.
