Joining Year 7 in 2022


Congratulations on your 11+ success and for choosing us as your secondary school. Now that you have confirmed your place with us in September and sent us some information to help allocate you to a form, here are some important dates for your diaries.

During the first three weeks in June a member of QEHS teaching staff will visit you in your primary school.

On 30 June we will be hosting an evening sporting event for our Year 6 students from 16.30-18.00. This is an early opportunity to meet some of your peers and members of staff and take part in some fun, informal sporting activities.

Our Taster Days will be on 5 and 6 July and you will be required on both days between 8.45 and 15.15. On these days you will meet your Form Tutor and Head of Year and find out which form you will be in in September.

On 6 July, we have an evening transition event for Year 6 children and their parents/guardians. This is an opportunity for parents and guardians to meet members of staff and find out more about the school and what it is like to be a Year 7 student at QEHS.

We very much look forward to welcoming you into our school community. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone or email.

Kind regards

Mrs E Watson

A message from the Parents!

If you are worried as a parent, and you really don't know what to expect, perhaps taking a few minutes to read this letter from another family will help to reassure you of what it is really like. Click here to read the letter - (even the more experienced parent may need a reminder sometimes too!).
