Four lower sixth students took part in the Celebration and Assessment Day (CAD) of the Engineering Education Scheme (EES) at Newcastle University on 21 April 2017. QEHS won the “Pupils’ Choice Award” for the second year running, which was voted for by students from all 30 schools taking part. During the day, the students gave a 15-minute presentation on their project to a panel of expert assessors. They were then quizzed on their grasp of the brief. They were highly commended, by the assessors, for their depth of knowledge and understanding, the clarity of the presentation and for their breadth of research.

The Higher Education Advice Evening for parents/carers of Year 12 students is being held on Thursday 4 May 2017, 6pm - 7.40pm.  A programme for the evening is listed below.  Please note that this evening is for parents/carers only, as students will be given all this information as part of the Next Step Conference on Thursday 8 June 2017 and during “Progression Days”, days set aside to focus on progression between June and the end of term.  

During the Easter holidays, Year 12 students enjoyed the annual ski trip to Serre Chevalier.  Mrs Bevan sent through some photos of skiing and the slopes.
