Jurassic Geography

We were delighted to welcome Charlie Walker back to QEH this week. Charlie is an explorer, writer and public speaker who has done some amazing expeditions over his 12 year career to date.

The Year 12 geographers were away at the start of this week for two nights on their residential fieldtrip studying Dorset’s Jurassic coastline. On our way south, we stopped to examine the rather strange and contrived settlement of Poundbury before travelling the length of Chesil Beach from the towering cliffs at West Bay to the Isle of Portland.

Monday was spent intensively studying the sand dunes at Studland, several students collecting data for their A-level projects. On the final day, we went coasteering at Lulworth Cove and were able to get closer to the rocks and landforms we had earlier studied in the classroom than would have been possible from the shore. A few of our students impressively conquered their nerves to take part in some cliff jumping too.

Mr P Amor, Head of Geography

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.

My boys have loved QEH!  They felt at home so quickly and really enjoyed being able to be themselves with like-minded lads.  The teachers really 'got' them and, although they're very different characters, QEH brought out the best in both of them.
