We are excited to announce a new learning environment for students studying Design and Technology at QEH. This comprises a refitted workshop and a new dedicated computer-aided design studio. This now allows us to deliver a Design and Technology curriculum into the Sixth Form via our Product Design A Level, which our first cohort of Year 12 students started in September.

This development has also allowed QEH to expand the learning opportunities within DT, and students now have access to stereolithography 3D printing alongside FDM 3D printing. We have added to our roster of established processes, such as laser cutting, with some new machines. We can now teach students metal casting and turning, as well as providing a wider range of plastic and woodworking methods, giving students greater manufacturing options when completing coursework.

Design and Technology is taught in small groups to all pupils from Year 7 and it is also a popular choice for GCSE.

Mr. Holmes, the Head of Design and Technology at QEH commented on his vision for the department:

“Everything in our built environment has been designed by somebody to do something. Our goal is to develop a modern curriculum that inspires the designers and engineers of the future. We are committed to preparing students so they are ready to enter the UK’s world-leading creative design and engineering industries.”

Mr Heathcote added:

“QEH is delighted to invest in this important subject for the development for future engineers and designers.”
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!

Mark joins Mensa!

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.

We will remember them

Our Year 7 students were busy bees during their enrichment sessions last week, making eco-friendly lip balm from beeswax, olive oil and coconut oil.

I believe attending QEH has significantly improved my daughter's life. QEH has helped her grow in confidence and character, as well as academically. Your teachers and support staff have guided my daughter to develop her true potential. She now has brilliant life skills with improved critical thinking, analysis and communication. I am honoured and proud to be allowed to be associated with your school.
