Dr Richard Brookes, Head, said:

“Well done to all our boys on an excellent set of A-level results. They have risen admirably to the challenge of their first set of public exams, having had their GCSE exams cancelled due to Covid in 2021. Throughout their time at QEGS they have shown tremendous dedication and academic aspiration. Moreover, they have made a super contribution to all areas of school life and always shown great care for each other. I congratulate them, and I look forward to staying in touch with them as they join our alumni community. I would also like to thank the QEGS staff for all that they have done to support and inspire these boys.”
