We are delighted that Prize-giving was finally able to go ahead, having been postponed since October due to COVID and being the first Prize-giving since 2019.

The ceremony celebrating the achievements of our pupils hard work and individual subject successes took place in Clifton Cathedral.

Rupert Heathcote, Head of QEH, expressed in his speech his amazement at the perseverance and willingness of the pupils attending school throughout the pandemic. He said; "I was struck throughout this time by how totally committed the pupils were to their studies in the face of such enormous disruption to their lives – both in and out of school." It is this commitment that highlighted the pupils worthy of the awards delivered at Prize-giving. 

At the ceremony, Mr Heathcote said to the pupils; "We are hugely lucky and privileged to have our amazing school site, and our incredible staff and governors and alumni – but a school is actually about the pupils and I continue to be in awe of the commitment, courage, the positivity and achievements of you all over the last couple of years. It is a huge honour and privilege to serve as your Head and I thank you all for the part you’ve played in this unique and special time in the school’s history."

The awards were presented to pupils by OE Rob Gardner who is the Director of Investments at St James' Place Wealth Management. Rob also works with schools to support the financial wellbeing of young people. 

It was fantastic to see so many OEs attend the reception in the School Room afterwards. It is always a pleasure to have you back here.
