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.

Thank you Friends of QEH!

Yesterday, the Girls’ 1st XI Hockey team won the tier 4 South West Regional tournament, and qualified for the National Finals - a historic achievement for QEH.

Since joining the school, we have been constantly amazed by the support and kindness given by the teachers, staff and other pupils and, above all, by the injection of fun that infiltrates throughout whether they're playing sport, completing a science project and participating in a school play.  No doubt there will be challenges ahead but we're confident the school will provide the support and guidance that has our sons' best interests at heart.
