Welcome to Queen Elizabeth High School, Hexham
Community and Leisure Courses Spring and Summer 2014

Goodbye Mr Morrison

Neil Morrison retires this year after leading Queen Elizabeth High School for 6 years.

Neil's commitment to the school and to comprehensive education in Hexham has been fantastic.

He leaves Hexham Middle School with record Key Stage 2 results and we are predicting record results at QEHS when GCSE / A Level results are published this Summer.

On his last day, the QEHS boys choir and Mr Hoile performed a special version of Jimmy Nail's "Big River" in Neil's Office.

We wish Neil all the very best for the future.

QEHS Media Students were commissioned to produce short films to promote the proposed £11.7m Sill Project National Landscape Discovery Centre at Once Brewed. Months of painstaking editing work in the QEHS Media Suite was rewarded when the films were shown at a screening event at the Baltic art Gallery in Newcastle last week. Their work was praised by local celebrity Robson Green and the executive of the Northumberland National Park Tom Gates.

German Exchange Work Experience

German Exchange Work Experience

The German exchange programme runs annually with our partner school, the Steinhagener Gynmasium, near Bielfeld. (www.steingy.de). This year two of our Year 13 students did work experience at the town hall whilst on the German exchange. Alex wrote a short account of the experience:

Having now been on the German exchange 3 times, I can safely say that this year gave me the opportunity to experience working life in Germany! What impressed me above all was the willingness of the mayor, Klaus Besser, and his staff, to facilitate our work experience placements. We gained a valuable insight into the huge range of jobs available at the town hall, such as translation into English, IT work - helping a local school install new software, helping set up the street market, whilst issuing parking tickets in Steinhagen!

I believe this placement not only helped me improve my spoken German, but it has also cemented valuable relationships with native speakers and developed skills we will be able to put to use in the future.
