It’s all about the 5s!

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.

QEH Juniors Year 5 boys, Freddie, Felix, Harri, Eddie and Henry are covering 5km, 5 days a week for 5 weeks to raise £5,000 for the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation.

Freddie explains why they’re doing this.

“We were asked to create a presentation for English on a person who we find inspirational. I love Rugby, as do my friends, and I researched the amazing players from the past. I found some footage of Doddie Weir and watched the footage of him being injured on the Lions tour. I thought he was amazing, putting the Lions team above his own aspirations. A true sportsman.”

“That was enough to make me think how much I would love to be that kind of player. Then I found out about Doddie’s diagnosis with MND and the amazing work he has been doing for his charity My Name’5s Doddie. Now I felt I had to do something. So with the amazing enthusiasm of my great friends at school, we have set out a challenge,” he continued.

“Eddie, Felix, Henry and Harri are joining me, Freddie, in our 5’s challenge. As 5 Year 5 boys, we are going to complete a 5km distance, 5 days a week for 5 weeks. We want to raise a really ambitious £5000.”

The boys are now in training, so they’re ready to for their challenge in the summer term. We are so proud of them for doing this and wish them well as they embody the QEH motto, Whilst we have time, let us do good. If you would like to support their fundraising efforts, please visit their JustGiving page to donate.

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!

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

On my first day of Senior School it felt like I was let into a new family.
