Head for the hills

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.

On the last Sunday of November, when the first wintery blasts arrived, thirty three Year 10 pupils and four members of staff headed to Burrington Combe to begin Ten Tors training.

After eight weeks of classroom training, the boys were ready to stretch their legs and test their stamina on the hills. With temperatures forecasted at 0 degrees Celsius, the conditions were perfect! The route took us onto Beacon Batch and then down into Cheddar via Black Down. We then climbed back out of Cheddar on the opposite side of the gorge and over the top to return to Burrington. It was a decent ten mile walk and all the boys seemed to enjoy themselves.

Next stop is Pen Y Fan on Sunday 9 January for Year 10 before training ramps up with the prospective 45 milers joining us when we head to Exmoor at the end of January.

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.

Thank you Friends of QEH!

Induction day, but not as we know it!

This week, Year 6 boys and their teachers headed off to Exmoor for their last QE Award trip of the year and of the Junior School.  QE Camp is the final part of their two year outdoor pursuit programme and is the culmination of the skills they have learned and journey they have been on.

Exmoor at last

QEH provides a safe, nurturing environment where each pupil is treated as an individual.  The results are confident young men who truly believe in themselves.  Freddie now has a passion for learning and the confidence to apply it which is due to the school, its understanding of boys and its fantastic staff.
