Principal’s welcome

As we launch into 2019, the work being undertaken at TQEA continues to support students in achieving the very best educational outcomes.  This cannot be achieved without the fantastic support from our dedicated staff and wonderful parents.  Thank you to you all.

At this time, the staff at TQEA would like to wish all our year 11 students the very best for spring term and their upcoming summer exams. You have worked so hard so far this year and deserve the success that this brings. Remember there is still work to do and much to be gained. Keep your eyes and the prize and give your all. We all hope that 2019 will be the springboard to your future success.

Last term saw many highs following our best ever GCSE examination results, which put us well above national averages in the government’s performance measures and amongst the top 10 schools in Warwickshire.    

In addition to our academic success, we have welcomed visitors from the music industry with artists including Ayo Beatz and Calum Foad. Back in September our whole school welcomed the Ovo Energy Men’s Tour of Britain which included superstars of world cycling Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas as they flew past our front door! Take a look at the photos in our newsletter and on our Twitter page @TQEA_Principal.

Providing educational activities outside of the normal lesson structure is an important part of our ethos. Students have enjoyed opportunities including; theatre visits; RHS Green Plan It; watching international football at Wembley; coaching from Wasps Rugby and Netball, and Birmingham City LFC and even toasting marshmallows over an open fire in ‘Survivor Club’.  We believe that these activities help to support young people in becoming more rounded adults with a broader interest in life’s opportunities.
