Year 13 students and staff at Queen Elizabeth High School in Hexham are celebrating matching the school’s best ever set of A Level results. An amazing 41% of all entries were graded A*/A (or equivalent) and 71% of students were graded A*-B. We are also equally delighted with our vocational results, which were strong again this year with students (on average) achieving a distinction grade across a range of subjects. At least a third of QE students take one or more of these vocational BTEC or OCR qualifications.

There were many outstanding individual performances and the school is delighted that two students will be going on to study at Oxford or Cambridge with a further five taking up courses in medicine or veterinary medicine. Overall, 97% of students got into their first or second choice university this year. In maths A Level, 22 students achieved A* grades and the average result in OCR sport was double distinction*.

Yesterday morning the exchange students experienced life in a German grammar school, attending lessons with their host partners. The group then visited the town hall, where they were met with a warm welcome, as ever, by highly popular mayor Klaus Besser, who had purchased a Union Jack and had it raised outside the town hall building in our honour.
