Year 7 team building fun!

Last weekend, the year sevens went to the beautiful Osmington Bay for a once in a lifetime trip. This included tackling high climbing walls and sailing in the channel in a team-built raft.

Last weekend, the year sevens went to the beautiful Osmington Bay for a once in a lifetime trip. This included tackling high climbing walls and sailing in the channel in a team-built raft. As we arrived, many of us were nervous: it wasn’t just the physical challenges ahead, but also the unknown of being away for two days with so many new faces. Nevertheless, we all faced our fears as we scaled the mighty climbing wall with our friends cheering us on.

The next challenge was a devious wobbly puzzle: Jacob’s ladder. Groups had to use all their ingenuity and newfound teamwork to clamber up the rickety steps. One of the highlights of the weekend was spotting a dolphin playing close to the shore as we tested the sea worthiness of our rafts. Overall, it was an unforgettable trip that forged strong friendships for our future at QEH.

Thank you to all the teachers who made it such a special trip.

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.

Anyone feeling hungry?

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.
