Dear Parent/Carer

It has been brought to our attention that Snapchat has released an update yesterday and it has added a map feature that lets the user share their current location. While it is not the first app to offer a location sharing service it is a popular app with young people and we felt it was important to inform parents. The update is a concern because the user's location is available to “friends” (and other users) on a map and this updates when the app is being used. Used correctly this should not be an concern but students and parents need to be aware of the potential issues and how to avoid them.

To mark Refugee Week please could you donate any unwanted crockery and cutlery from home and take them to Mr Brook’s room – A11. They will be taken to the clients at West End Refugee Service (WERS) who are desperately in need of such items. QEHS has been particularly generous with their clothing donations in the past and they are so gratefully received. Hopefully we can do the same again with this collection. The collection will actually run until 14th July and not 23rd June as first publicised.

There will be an cake sale this Friday (23rd June) for QEHS students and all the money will go to WERS.

Thanks for your help

Congratulations to the QEHS women's rowing team who came second in the Intermediate women’s (IM3) coded quad race at Durham Regatta. The team were only beaten by a boat's length against Durham University who are two years their senior. A fantastic effort by all involved!

Mr Atkins, Executive Headteacher, has sent out a letter to parents/carers today regarding the Head of School, upcoming events and key dates, and our Annual Parent Survey.  Please find the letter below.

The following arrangements are in place to issue exam results to students:

Year 13: collect results from the Winter Gardens 8:00 – 10:00am on Thursday 17 August 2017

Year 12: collect results from the Winter Gardens 9:00 – 10:00am on Thursday 17 August 2017

Year 11: collect results from the Winter Gardens at 9:00 – 10:30am on Thursday 24 August 2017

If you are unable to collect results at that time then please complete an alternative issue of exam results form (see below) and ensure that it is handed into the Exams Office no later than Tuesday 11 July 2017. If your form is received after this date there is no guarantee that results can be issued on day of release. Forms will also be available from outside the Exams Office.

If you are nominating someone to collect results on your behalf, please ensure that they bring the completed permission slip (see the alternative issue of results form) AND photographic ID as results are not be issued without this.
