Year 5 look for treasure!

We were delighted to welcome Charlie Walker back to QEH this week. Charlie is an explorer, writer and public speaker who has done some amazing expeditions over his 12 year career to date.

Last Friday Year 5 spent the day in Belmont Woods as part of their QE Award programme. They were joined with Year 5 pupils from Oasis Academy New Oak Primary School making a total of 70 pupils enjoying the experience.

Once split into mixed groups, pupils had to use a map and their navigation skills to locate various ‘treasure’ boxes hidden around the wood. Not only were their team work skills put to the test but, as they identified before the activity, other key values such as resilience, perseverance, cooperation and communication were also very much needed to successfully complete the course.

It was lovely to see all the pupils mixing so well and working together and thoroughly enjoying the day.

Many thanks to the staff from New Oak as well as Mrs England, Mrs Beaumont and Jacob Harding for their help in making it such a success.

Onto the next QE Award expedition………The Mendips!

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!

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.

Welcome back to Year 10 and 12

Intrepid Year 5 boys headed back to Belmont Wood last Friday for the 'Camouflage and Concealment' part of their QE Award.

Adventure awaits . . .

Pupils display genuine respect and tolerance towards each other, creating a caring and supportive community.
