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.

Engineering Education Scheme 2017
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.
