Our Comment on Edward Colston

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.

Following the tearing down of the statue of Edward Colston and the inspiring Black Lives Matter campaign, various parties have understandably enquired about the links between Edward Colston and Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital. While QEH was not founded by Edward Colston, in the early 1700s the School did benefit from money donated by him and a number of other Bristol merchants.

QEH supports the Black Lives Matter campaign. We are committed to supporting all members of our BAME school community. We will continue, through the education we provide, to play our part in bringing about an end to all forms of prejudice that impact on so many people in Bristol and across the world.

Although we pride ourselves on being a culturally rich and diverse school, we recognise that we still need to do much more to ensure QEH is an ever more inclusive and compassionate community for all. We continually review all areas of school life to ensure we are educating our students effectively and building a school community which fully represents the local population.

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!

Pupils return to school

Year 9 students took part in their Teambuilding Day, moving from Brandon Hill to the Yard and School Room for various different activities.

Year 9 Teambuilding Adventures

With our two sons being at this school over the past 13 years, we could not be happier with the amazing teachers, teaching and all the extra activities outside of the curriculum. Both boys have come away with outstanding results and aside from that as perfectly rounded, confident and well-mannered young men. We leave today so thanks to the school for everything, we shall miss these days.
