Year 7 have been developing a radio drama project over the past few weeks. After learning about foley artistry – where you record your own sound effects live, then add them onto a script in post-production, they got to work putting together their own mini radio plays.

They were given one page of script from BBC Radio 4’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s book – How the Marquis Got His Coat Back and then asked to write two more pages, including sound effects. Once they had completed the script, they had to create their sounds and put it all together. Some sound effects were performed live and others recorded in advance. Their endings are all very different, but the results are fantastic. It really does sound like you’ve tuned into BBC Radio 4! They are very professionally done. Well done, boys. Great work!

Please click on their names to hear the plays:

Thomas, Ned and George, Finn and Parsa and Reuben.

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!

QEH named Eco-School National Marine School of the Year!

You run a remarkable school with an ethic that is truly unique. It shines through in each and every boy. There’s something in the way the teachers know every boy’s talent and in the way the boys support each other (while also embracing real competition!) that’s just remarkable.
