We believe that, in the earlier years of school, boys learn best this way.
At QEH, we understand boys and teach in ways that suit them. We know their foibles, their tendency to leave things until the last moment and their need to be active in their learning. And we understand how to coax them out of the teenage blues.
In a boys' only environment – in our lower and middle school - boys are freer to acknowledge their feelings and develop self-confidence, and are less likely to succumb to unhelpful stereotypes of subjects or activities being ‘for boys’ or ‘for girls’. This means they're just as happy to read a poem in assembly, sing in the choir and perform on the stage as they are to play in the rugby or football team.
By the time they reach Year 12, boys tend to have grown in confidence, matured academically and emotionally, and our outstanding co-educational Sixth Form allows both boys and girls to learn and work together during their final two years of school.
My boys have loved QEH! The teachers really 'got' them and although they're very different characters, QEH brought out the best in both of them.Katie, parent
