Promoting Racial Inclusivity and Awareness

When we reflect on 2020 as a school community, our memories will be dominated by the challenges presented by a global pandemic and how we adapted to these challenges.

When we reflect on 2020 as a school community, our memories will be dominated by the challenges presented by a global pandemic and how we adapted to these challenges.

However, 2020 also presented us with the opportunity to take a deeper look at issues such as our attitudes to racism, highlighted by the Black Lives Matter campaign. Whilst we pride ourselves on being a culturally rich and diverse school, we recognise that we must continually do more to ensure QEH is an ever more inclusive and compassionate community for all.

With this in mind, QEH is working in partnership with Flair Impact, an organisation that is committed to promoting racial inclusivity and awareness. On Wednesday 20 January, all staff and pupils will be invited to complete an anonymous survey on racial issues. Flair, in turn, will interpret the results and provide data-driven recommendations for our school community. As Mr Heathcote discusses in the video below, this will ensure we continue to educate our students effectively and build 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!

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 stage!

The Year 7 Scholars' Programme boys participated in a fantastic Retreat Day hosted by the Bristol Folk House conference centre.

Thank you for making Alec’s first week so enjoyable. He’s loved every day and has come home really happy. In particular, he’s said the other boys have made him feel really included and like he’s always been there.
