Congratulations to our new OEs who received their A-level results today! In spite of all the difficulties brought about by Covid - including the cancellation of the exams - the school is celebrating 80% of grades awarded at A*-B for the fifth year in a row.

I am very proud of what we have achieved together this year.”
The vast majority of QEH leavers will be taking up their places at university, including top Russell Group universities, to study courses ranging from Fine Art to Engineering. Jonathan Lee, who achieved A* grades in Maths, Further Maths, Advanced Physics and Chemistry, will be taking up his place to study Mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge.
