201022 QEH Open Mic 9400

The QEH Theatre saw fantastic music and drama performances last week.

On Wednesday, the Year 11 drama GCSE group staged their devised performance examination. Pupils are required to create an original piece of theatre in a particular style. Both groups choose to use the ideas of Brecht who used techniques designed to challenge the audience and encourage a questioning approach.

What Happened That Evening? was a piece about domestic abuse and how the labels that we give people can affect how others view them.  In Simon, the issue of corruption was explored through the use of humour and satire. These pieces were insightful and entertaining and showed a range of vocal and physical skills.

The following evening, after a three year hiatus, we were delighted to welcome the return of Open Mic Night. This event offers an opportunity for our pop, rock and jazz musicians to take to the stage and, as always, they did not disappoint!

The audience gave the musicians a warm and appreciative reception as pupils from Years 7 to 13 were represented, performing solo and in bands. It was fantastic to have so many first time performers in the programme including our first ever solo female singers!

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.

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

We are immensely grateful for your teaching, support and guidance. My daughter’s had a terrific time at QEH. Results day made us very proud of course; and the warmth and mutual respect of staff and students filled the room. The environment at QEH has helped my daughter grow, be challenged, and really learn about herself and the world. Thank you again, and may the school continue to thrive.
