French Exchange 2016
This week, QE students are in France as part of the annual French Exchange. 25 pupils from Year 10 and 12 pupils from Year 12 have made the trip to Rouen to meet up with their French exchange partners, who visited Hexham last November. The group are fortunate to have the opportunity to be hosted by French families and thus gain an insight into life in France.
As part of the trip, our students have visited Paris, with highlights being a cruise on the famous Bateaux Mouches, a walking tour of the Louvre, the Champs-Elysées, the Arc de Triomphe and a visit to the Sacre Coeur and the beautiful streets surrounding it.
Steinhagen German Exchange 2016
Once again, students from our partner school from Steinhagen in Germany are paying us a visit this week as part of our annual German Exchange. 27 students are staying with host families of QE Year 10 students. This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to see their classroom learning in a real-life setting and to make friendships with students from another country. As part of their visit, the German group will visit Newcastle, Edinburgh, Durham and, of course, Hexham.

QEHS and King Edward VI, Morpeth, played a hard, competitive and exciting Under 18 Northumberland Schools final at the home of the Newcastle Falcons. The match was a great advert for this tough collision sport with commitment, skill and enthusiasm evident from the players on both sides. KEVI had progressed to the final with a fine 10-7 semi-final win over Dame Allan's, Newcastle, whilst QE had enjoyed a convincing 39-8 victory at the Royal Grammar School, Newcastle.
