Congratulations to David Fava (Labour) who has won the QEHS General Election.

Well done to all of the candidates who have done a fantastic job of raising awareness of the key issues. Be heard: vote on Thursday.

Nepal Earthquake Appeal

A massive thank you to all of the staff, students and parents who donated to the Nepal Earthquake Appeal on Friday. Together we raised £1,650 which will be match funded by the government to give a total of £3,300. This will be put to good use helping the huge numbers of people affected by this disaster.
