It was a day for celebration at Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital, as pupils received their eagerly anticipated GCSE results today. The school is delighted for the pupils who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement and the results are a tribute to their hard work.  

It has been widely reported in the media that GCSEs in England were subject to a ‘hard reset’ in marking standards this year and we are delighted to report that, despite this, 2023’s results compare very favourably with the 2019 benchmark. 

Almost half of the grades awarded were 8s or 9s, in subjects across the curriculum, reaffirming QEH’s dedication to fostering well-rounded individuals. Ten pupils were overjoyed to see all their results as this exceptional level. 

Rupert Heathcote, Head of QEH, praised the pupils’ work ethic, saying,

“We are tremendously proud of our pupils’ excellent GCSE results. They have demonstrated dedication and resilience throughout their studies, and these achievements are a testament to their abilities and the support of our staff and parents. Year 11 has been a busy year group and the pupils have still found time to be involved in a wide variety of co-curricular activities whilst keeping on top of their studies. We look forward to welcoming them to Sixth Form in September.” 

Mr Heathcote expressed his gratitude to the staff at QEH, whose expertise and tireless efforts have developed a love of learning in these young people. He emphasised, “Our passionate and dedicated teaching staff have played an instrumental role in inspiring and supporting our pupils throughout their academic journey. Their commitment to excellence and the holistic development of our pupils is truly outstanding.” 

QEH, well known for its nurturing environment as well as high academic standards, has once again demonstrated its commitment to providing a first-class, all-round education. The dedication and determination of its pupils, coupled with expert teaching, has culminated in success across the curriculum.

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.

Welcome back to Year 10 and 12
