Fifteen of our Year 10 computing students ended a trip as proud owners of the latest Raspberry Pi kit, and Mr Williams brought back an Oculus Go – he promises to bring in to school once it is charged up!.

We were guests of EY at their annual conference, this year focusing on the future of technology. Not being sure what this meant, we went with open minds - and were rewarded:

  • Artificial Intelligence can be great, but getting beaten at Connect 4 by a computer is not much fun, and we need to watch out for deep fakes (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkoi7sZvWiU
  • Virtual Reality can make you ill, but it is very funny watching someone else with a headset on
  • Augmented Reality can really enhance the world around us and we used HP Reveal to create some of our won content. We will also look out for BlippAR.
  • Process Mining is very powerful and enables us to delve into real data to identify real yet fixable issues, like with the Finnish health care system

QEHS Youth Theatre starts on Wednesday 12 September 2018, 3.45pm – 6pm in the Main School Hall.

Year 11 students and staff at Queen Elizabeth High School in Hexham are celebrating another excellent set of GCSE results. In a year where a further twenty GCSEs have reformed, we are delighted to report that 80% of students achieved the 9-4 grades in English and maths; this matches our best ever performance when the currency was A*-C. Furthermore, 68% of students achieved 9-5 in English and maths – this is up 5% on last year and represents the high quality work completed by the students.

There were many outstanding individual performances and we are delighted that so many students will progress on to study A Level and vocational courses in our successful Sixth Form.
