The Scholars’ journey begins

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.

Last week the Year 7 Scholars’ Programme boys participated in a fantastic Retreat Day hosted by the conference centre at the Bristol Folk House.

Fuelled by fantastic hot chocolate and delicious pastries from the Folk House Café, their introductory session provided some helpful background to the programme and an overview of the various components, including subject enrichment projects, enrichment reading novels and twilight enrichment sessions. They then listened to one another’s presentations on the themes of identity and inspiration, and concluded with a discussion of the opening chapter of Neil Gaiman’s amazing novel, The Graveyard Book.

After three and a half hours of hard intellectual work, they found that they had built up quite an appetite! They were well rewarded by a fabulous lunch at the award-winning Three Brothers’ Burgers, and rounded out their Retreat Day by learning a new skill-set: how to play proper baseball (to the considerable amusement of those who were enjoying a sunny afternoon in Queen’s Square)!

The Scholarship Programme is designed to meet the learning needs of students of very high academic ability, by providing a continuous programme of academic enrichment from Years 7 – 11.

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!

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.
