Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle

In line with government guidelines, due to the current situation regarding Coronavirus, our school is now operating restricted opening in order to support the children of key workers or those who are vulnerable.  With effect from Friday 27th March 2020, as part of our wider school family within the Horncastle Education Trust, we welcome the staff and students from Banovallum School to the West Street site as we work together to support each other.

We will continue to closely monitor the situation and updates will be provided on our website as they become available.

Students not attending school should access work by checking O:\School Closure Work via Moodle.  There you will either find work or instructions from your teacher on how they will be sending work to you.

In order for us to continue to discharge our safeguarding responsibilities, if your child is due to attend school and you need to report an absence, please telephone 01507 522465 by 08:30 each day.

During the closure period we will be unable to answer queries by telephone, however, the following email address can be used for general enquiries:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  We will continue to monitor our emails, however, due to remote working and the volume of enquiries we are likely to receive, it may take a little longer for us to respond.  We thank you for your patience at this difficult time.”

Information on how work will be made available (and how students can access work) is also linked below in PDF format.  This information was also sent out to parents via email on Friday 20th March.

He presented an initial assembly for Years 7 and 8, looking at how crucial trees are to our life and various sustainable and ecological ways of life. Students particularly engaged with alternative eco-friendly housing and the way in which the use of drones was helping to reforest vast terrains quickly and efficiently.

Students are pictured here with Angela Meah from CoolDC – a local company that specialises in how to reduce the environmental impact of data centres. Students learnt about what data centres are, how they impact on the environment and what can be done. Groups of students completed tasks where they had to find suitable renewable energy sources for data centres in different parts of the world.
