This week we are happy to welcome visitors from our partner school, Lycée Flaubert in Rouen, as part of the annual French Exchange. 36 students from Year 10 and Year 12 are hosting their exchange partners for a week in hope of making new friends and developing their understanding of the French language and culture.

We have now published our Sixth Form prospectus for 2017 entry (click picture above for a link to the electronic version). We have over 30 A Level and vocational courses available and our basic entry requirement is 5 A*-C (or 4+) grades at GCSE including English Language. Our Sixth Form is one of the best in the North-East and we have a range of events taking place throughout 2016 and 2017 to help students decide which courses they wish to study, including an open evening, taster days and 1:1 guidance interviews.

If you are not currently in Year 11 at QEHS and wish to join our Sixth Form, please download our prospectus and register an interest with Emily Webb (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). We strongly advise you to attend our Open Evening on Tuesday 15 November 2016 but external students should contact Emily in advance so that we can register your interest and help you make the most of the evening.

Resit forms are available from outside of the exams office and can also be downloaded from the Exams page. Completed forms must be returned, with payment, to the exams office no later than lunchtime on 2 December 2016.

Please note that information on resit exam fees is available from the exams office during break or lunchtime only.

Thank you to all the parents/carers who attended the Welcome to Sixth Form Evening on Tuesday 20 September 2016. The presentation from the evening is available below as a PDF document.

Freshers' Fair 2016 was held on Thursday 15 September for all Year 12 students; the annual event showcased volunteering and extra-curricular opportunities available to Sixth Form students. There were over 20 stalls at the event with both school clubs and external organisations represented, including Oxfam, WECAN, Josie's Dragonfly Trust, Hexham Abbey, Northumberland National Parks, and Hexham Youth Initiative, who all presented their exciting opportunities to QE students. The afternoon had a great atmosphere and hopefully all the clubs and organisations now have a lot more Sixth Form volunteers! We are particularly proud of the contribution that our Sixth Form students make to the wider community and hope they continue to volunteer their time and effort in the future.
