QEH prides itself on offering a comprehensive range of trips and educational visits, designed both to enhance the pupils' learning and stimulate their inquisitiveness.
Our city centre site is ideal with so much within walking distance: City Museum & Art Gallery; RWA; city docks with SS Great Britain, the 'Matthew' and MShed; Watershed media centre and Arnolfini; Avon Gorge, Leigh Woods and Clifton Suspension Bridge; Bristol Zoo and Botanical Gardens; Hippodrome and Theatre Royal; Colston Hall; We The Curious; BBC; Bristol University; Bristol Cathedral and Lord Mayor's Chapel, and Ashton Court estate. We are spoilt for choice.
Travel is not restricted to day trips: there have been recent sightings of QEH pupils on the battlefields of the Somme, younger ones adventuring in the South of France, classicists and philosophers roaming Greece, geographers in Iceland, artists in Madrid, a debating team in Estonia and on the streets of Riga, musicians in downtown Manhattan, and even some luxuriating amidst the Moorish splendour of the Alhambra! Pupils travel to explore Art in Paris; Physics in Grenoble and Modern Languages in Normandy. The list is more extensive still with travel awards up to £1000 on offer to individuals for their own expeditions.
