The QEHS Under 15 Indoor Cricket Team travelled to Lord's Cricket ground to represent North of England schools in the national competition. The girls had previously won the regional competition in Bolton, beating the champions of strong counties such as Yorkshire and Lancashire. The standard of girls' cricket at the national competition was outstanding. Playing against all private schools, the QEHS team competed tremendously well and were an absolute credit to the school. They finished as the top state school in England and Wales and among the top 5 schools - state and independent - overall. Mr Armstrong, who led the team, commented: "This is an outstanding achievement by the girls and we are so proud of them, both in terms of how they played and the way they have conducted themselves throughout."

Enthusiastic pupils from Years 9 and 10 have been taking to the Northumbrian pipes. Every week the distinctive sound of Northumberland's very own musical instrument can be heard along the ground floor of the Hydro building.

With help from the Northumbrian Pipers Society, learner-sets are now available for young people interested in learning the pipes. The Society is helping us keep costs for pupils down, and is also offering the chance for people to hire a set for longer term learning.

Recent invitations have arrived for our pipers to participate in performances at The Alnwick Garden, and as part of The Great Exhibition Of the North at the request of Virgin Money who want to showcase 'what makes the Northeast unique'.

Whether you're a musician already or a complete beginner, we welcome anyone, regardless of age. Join us on Friday lunchtimes!
