Year 9 visit the Battlefields

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.

In early May, after a two year hiatus, a group Year 9 pupils and four members of staff took their first trip to the Battlefields in Belgium and France.

Whilst there, they visited important sites from both the world wars, including cemeteries such as Tyne Cot, Langemark and Delville Wood, trench systems and V2 bunkers. They also visited numerous museums around Ypres and a chocolate shop!

A particular highlight was the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate which they attended on Sunday 8 May (VE Day). Three students from Year 9, Christopher, Sam and Finn, presented a wreath on behalf of the school, and Finn was even selected to read The Exhortation in front of the crowd. You can watch the ceremony here.

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!

Year 9 rise to the Challenge

On Monday, Year 7 were finally able to go on their long awaited trip to Margam Park!

There is no doubt in my mind that were it not for QEH, and ALL the staff within it, he would not have achieved so much nor would he be the person he is today.
