It’s Autumn Eco Week!

This week marks our celebration of all things eco, featuring engaging activities such as insightful talks from guest speakers, workshops focusing on air quality.

This week marks our celebration of all things eco, featuring engaging activities such as insightful talks from guest speakers, workshops focusing on air quality, the intersection of sports and the climate crisis, and the impact of fast fashion. We also emphasised the significance of bees and conducted an Active Travel survey.

Sixth Form students were inspired by a presentation from Dan Brown, a Climate Researcher at the University of Bristol. He discussed his research on extreme weather events and the desperate need for research to support the development of loss and damage funds to support low-income regions.

Meanwhile, our Year 7 students participated in a workshop highlighting the importance of bees in the environment. They also contributed to the creation of Eco-Advent bags for the guests at the Julian Trust Shelter. With over 70 bags prepared and boxes ready for donations, our initiative for the Julian Trust Shelter is set to make a positive impact.

The entire school community embraced sustainability through a Christmas jumper swap. During break and lunch, students tried on various jumpers, exchanging them with friends. Not only did this initiative generate £15 for the Avon Wildlife Trust, but it also saved 15 new jumpers from being purchased or discarded. Keep an eye out for our upcoming charity T-Shirt Swap during next year’s Spring Eco-Week!

Our Eco-Week has once again provided a real focus on climate change – with workshops, initiatives, speakers and school-wide activities intended to make us all think about our own impact on climate change … the need has never been more pressing!”

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.

Ollie signs for the Bears!

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.

Our son is engaged and cheerful, getting on with the tasks which are diverse, interesting and meaningful for him.  It’s a big enough workload to keep him busy but not to overwhelm.
Thank you so much for all you are doing.
