Past Students

It’s great to hear from old school friends and share memories. A group has been created on FaceBook for past students to share photos and connect with old friends. Click here to access the group.

We are really grateful to Jess Amos for starting off this page for us. If anyone has news of past students, then please email it to Veronica Leighton at Thanks.

Emma Gibbons:
After gaining 12 GCSEs at QE I went on to Hereford Sixth Form College where I gained four A Levels. I then studied a Foundation Art and Design course at Worcester Art School for a year. I’m currently on my gap year, having an amazing time on a road trip around the south coast, living in a Micra, before I go to Nottingham Trent University to do Theatre Design and hopefully become a costume designer.

Lucy Hodgson:
After leaving school I studied drama at Hereford Sixth Form College and then took a gap year. During my gap year I got accepted to Birmingham Theatre School and gained an HND in performing arts. I then went on to top this up to a BA Hons in acting in Hull. Currently I work for Galaxy and Heart radio stations and also teach drama.

Angharad Smith:
I achieved 11 GCSEs then went onto Hereford Sixth Form College where I achieved four A levels including an A in Drama. I am now studying Drama at Exeter University. I am currently in my second year of study and have recently become station manager of our campus radio station. Currently I am looking into a career in the media.

Hannah Calder:
I got 12 GCSEs at QE then went to Hereford 6th Form College and gained 4 AS levels and 4 A levels (yes I’m counting general studies…lol). I am now in my second year at Cardiff University studying a Masters in Chemistry.

Ruth Hodgson:
After gaining 12 GCSEs at QE, I went on to Hereford VI Form College and gained 5 AS levels and 4 A levels. After college I took a gap year in which I ended up managing a shop and trying to fit in visits to every place and every activity I’d ever wanted to do! After this I decided a 9-5 job wasn’t for me, so in September started at Worcester University studying pre-hospital unscheduled emergency care.

Jess Wall:
After leaving QE with 10 GCSEs, I went to Hereford Sixth Form College where I passed 3 A levels, 2 AS levels
and 1 GCSE. After college, I took a gap year, in which I worked 3 jobs until I had saved enough money to travel to Japan, Australia and Los Angeles for 3 months. During my gap year I applied to do a Media, Communications and Culture course at the University of Gloucestershire, which is where I have been since September.

Jess Amos:
After leaving QE I went on to Hereford Sixth Form College where I studied for 2 years and got 1 AS level at B grade and 4 A levels at A grade. I then took a year out, where I worked for a few months and then went travelling with two of my friends – we went to Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Los Angeles; travelling for 6 months altogether. When I got back I started at the University of Gloucester, studying Digital Film Production. I’m about to finish my first year.
