Students that wish to sit Admissions Tests for university should complete an Admissions Test Entry Form. A hard copy of the form is also available from the Exams Office.

Forms need to be handed in no later than 29 September 2017.

Following the GCSE results, if any Year 11 students and parents/carers require information on how to calculate your Average Points Score (APS) or entry requirements for subjects in the Sixth Form at QEHS, please see the Sixth Form Prospectus 2017-18.

Our Year 11 students and staff are celebrating an excellent set of GCSE results. In a year of change, with significantly more challenging GCSEs and a new grading system in maths and English, we are delighted to report that we have matched our record breaking performance of last year.

80% of students achieved the new 9-4 grades in English AND Maths, matching the equivalent percentage of A*-C from last year.

There were many outstanding individual performances and we are delighted that so many students will progress on to study A Level and vocational courses in our Sixth Form which, indications following last week's results appear to show, is the best performing state school Sixth Form in the whole North East.

We would like to congratulate all of our students on their results this summer. These results are the best in the school's history with an amazing 50% of all entries graded A* or A (or equivalent). 71% of all entries were graded A*-B. The percentage of A* grades at A Level doubled this year.

There were many outstanding individual performances and the school is delighted that four students will be going on to study at Oxford or Cambridge with a further eight taking up courses in medicine or dentistry.

In Sports Science, every student achieved a Distinction* and in A Level Economics, every student achieved an A* or A grade.

Head of School Andy Byers said, "These fabulous results are just reward for the hard work of the students over the last two years and for the support they have received from their teachers and parents".
