Learning is our passion and we were delighted to introduce Adult Education at Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School from our West Street site in 2009. Offering a wide range of courses, along with the opportunity to meet new people and have fun, we have created a community hub for learning.
This year will see us continuing to work in partnership with Boston College to host their Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools course at our West Street site in Horncastle.
Take a look at our home page for current courses. We hope you will be inspired to take part.
We are always looking for new ideas for additional courses, contact us if you have any suggestions.
We look forward to welcoming you soon.
Lincolnshire Community Foundation and QEGS – Creating a Dementia Friendly Generation
Dementia touches the lives of millions of people across the UK. At Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School they are aiming to make a difference by educating people to help support those suffering with dementia. With the generous support of the Lincolnshire Community Foundation they will be opening their doors to the community, offering dementia awareness sessions and training.
Mrs Payne, Headteacher, commented: “At QEGS we recognise that students and their families can be affected by the impact of dementia. This year we are aiming to help create a dementia friendly generation who are aware and empathetic towards dementia sufferers. We have teamed up with the Alzheimer’s Society who will be delivering awareness sessions to our students, staff and parents. Now with the money provided from the Horncastle & District Health & Wellbeing Fund we are delighted that we can extend this opportunity through our adult education programme to benefit the local community, offering training in addition to awareness sessions both of which will be free of charge.”
Training places must be reserved in advance. We know they will be popular and so please contact Mrs James at QEGS on 01507 522465 to book your place.
