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.

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!

Year 9 rise to the Challenge

On Monday, Year 7 were finally able to go on their long awaited trip to Margam Park!

Year 7 at Margam Park

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.
