On 15 March 2018, eight students from Queen Elizabeth High School, Hexham, led by maths teachers Mrs Ju and Mrs James took part in the regional Year 10 Maths Feast organised by the Further Maths Support Programme at Northumbria University. Despite strong competition from 14 talented teams of students coming from Gateshead, Newcastle and Northumberland, the Queen Elizabeth mathematicians triumphed!

QEHS is gearing up for Sport Relief, with a number of events taking place Monday 19 – Friday 23 March 2018.

Our Year 9, 10 and 11 students will be running a sponsored mile during their core PE lessons. The students have a sponsor form to collect sponsorship from family and friends and can run further than a mile if they want to!

Our Sixth Form students are setting up a spinning bike in the Sixth Form Cafe, with the aim of keeping it going between them all week.  Students and staff will be able to spur them on and give donations via collections next to the bike.  Sixth Form are also organising sponsored volleyball and dodgeball events.

Our staff are running a sweepstake to guess how many steps Paralympic sprinter Jonnie Peacock will track on the Sport Relief app in one day.

Stay tuned for an update of all the money raised and photos of all the sporting activities through the week!

Despite snowy conditions, the guests were given a warm welcome by their host families and enjoyed five days of cultural activities including trips to Edinburgh, Newcastle, Durham and Beamish, as well as spending a day shadowing their partners during lessons.
