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.

West Northumberland Food Bank Donations
Before October Half Term QEHS students and staff were working with the West Northumberland Food Bank to raise donations to help people in food poverty. Congratulations to 9-HMP who won the Inter-Tutor competition for raising the most donations in the school. Both the students and Ms Pringle enjoyed the reward of a breakfast morning last Friday in the Year 9 café. Thank you to all those who have contributed to the food bank this year.
