Work planned during half term on Friday 27th October means we will not be contactable by telephone on that day.
You will be able to call us until 4pm on Thursday 26th and then again on Monday 30th October.
Year 11 students from all schools are warmly invited to our Sixth Form Information Evening at 7pm on Wednesday 1 November. The evening offers an opportunity for you to find out more about the current nature of A levels, including their implications for university entrance. We have organised a rolling programme of short subject presentations by Subject Leaders which provide an opportunity to find out more about what each A level actually involves. In particular, this provides students with an opportunity to find out more about those subjects that they may not have encountered before such as Economics, Film Studies, Geology or Psychology.
Our Sixth Form prospectus will be available on the evening and external students will be able to book a place on one of our application afternoons.
U6 Geographers took part in a field trip to Lincoln on Tuesday 26th September to identify changes to the city and differences between residential areas. This field work was part of the students' Changing Places topic. During the day the students were given presentations by a representative of 'Visit Lincoln' and by a local resident, which were kindly hosted in the Usher Art Gallery's education room.
Following on from a successful trip in 2016, the 15th July saw 14 students, Mr Cherry and Ms Freeman boarding a bus at QEGS for the start of the 2017 expedition. After meeting up with the expedition leader, Isi Booker at Heathrow there was a repeat of the flight into Kathmandu with a transfer at Delhi which left students wondering what to do with change in Indian rupees when they’d paid with sterling. Following a successful second attempt to land the aircraft at Kathmandu we transferred by bus to the Utse hotel in the tourist area of Thamel where we received a welcome talk by Gautam, who would be leading the trekking phase of the expedition, and some tea and biscuits.
After an early night’s sleep and a Tibetan breakfast, the next day saw us heading for the Nepal office of Practical Action – a charity that assists remote areas in developing resilient livelihoods covering issues such as water supply, sanitation, energy and disaster preparedness as well as looking at how food security could be improved. We had the pleasure of handing over a donation from a former traveller who was sufficiently impressed by their work that he had donated £1500 to the charity.
