Welcome to QEHS
In 1599 Queen Elizabeth I granted the people of Hexham a charter to establish a school because of their “outstanding eagerness to promote good learning”. Over 400 years later Queen Elizabeth High School continues to flourish as a friendly, welcoming and high achieving community school, educating over 1300 students, including almost 400 in the Sixth Form.
