At Queen Elizabeth Humanities College there is a strong tradition of developing high achieving and morally adept students who are able to contribute well to their local community and society as a whole. Having been appointed as Headteacher, this is something I hope continues for many years to come. In order to succeed, our students must achieve academic success so that they can follow a pathway of their choosing but they must also appreciate the role they have to play in wider society as a whole. I believe this is the essence of education.
One of the most important decisions we can ever make as a parent is who to entrust the education of our children to. As a parent myself, I understand the need for parents and carers to feel assured that the school they send their children to is the right choice and gives them the very best start in life as they develop into well rounded members of society.
The college again this year achieved highly within Herefordshire and compared very favourably nationally in achieving 66% of students leaving with the gold standard of 5 A*-C grade GCSE’s including English and mathematics. By example, our achievements within English are worthy of significant comment with students achieving far and above the national picture, reflecting outstanding teaching and learning.
Whether you are considering making Queen Elizabeth Humanities College the choice for your child’s education, now or in the future, I very much look forward to meeting you at one of our Open College events, details of which you can find at the bottom of the page. Additionally, if you are an existing parent or carer, or you have a vested interest in the work of the college we would be happy to see you by appointment.
This truly is a college that Bromyard can be proud of, having a clear and modern vision yet retaining those traditional values that are the building blocks to success.
