QEHS Human Rights group are collecting hats, scarves, gloves, toiletries, men's clothes as well as tinned and packeted food for West End Refugee Project, between now and the last week of term. If you can spare any of these items please ask your child to place bags in the marked boxes in the foyer of the lower school.

In previous years the project has been hugely grateful for our donations. Members of the Human Rights Group have been able to personally deliver a van full each time, which has without doubt made a difference to those desperately in need.

Important information from QEHS and Northumberland County Council for Parents/Carers regarding adverse weather conditions is now available.

A massive thanks from the QEHS Human Rights Group to all who contributed to the Refugee Day appeal. The final figure was £1400 which has been sent to the Refugee Red Cross Appeal. Well done everyone!

A big thank you to all the students, parents/carers and staff that were involved in raising donations for the Life Foundation. Sixth Form volunteers and students from Years 9, 10 and 11 helped sort the donations and write greetings cards to be sent to Romania. The charitable heart of the community was visible for all to see as we managed to fill an entire Luton van worth of donations.

The Year 9 Parents' Evenings will take place from 4.30pm – 7.30pm in the Lower School Hall, on the following dates:

  • Q Band students – Thursday 26 November 2015
    OR
  • E Band students – Tuesday 1 December 2015

To establish which Band your son/daughter is in, please check their Maths group, it details whether they are Q or E. ie 9QMA1 = Q band or 9EMA1 = E Band

All students are welcome to attend with parents. We operate a system whereby students make their own appointments. Within your son/daughter’s planner is a subject list (page 4) that should be used to decide which subject teachers you would like an appointment with. Your son/daughter should then arrange a meeting time convenient to both teacher and parent. This Parents’ Evening is an important occasion as it provides the opportunity for parents, staff and students to discuss individual progress.
