On Tuesday 27th June 2023, Mrs Powell, Head of Careers took five Year 9 pupils to Blackburn College to participate in their Annual Interschool Quiz.
The quiz, hosted at the College for over 20 years, by their 6th Form staff, is held annually for teams of Year 9 and Year 10 pupils from a range of local schools. Based upon the University Challenge format, professional quiz equipment is used together with a mix of picture, music and general knowledge rounds to ensure the teams are thoroughly challenged throughout.
The QEGS team consisting of Daniel Saunders, Umar Patel, Ismaael Nazir, Zaimah Uddin and Zoeya Ali all fought hard against other local high schools to win the coveted Trophy, the first time for QEGS!
Our winning team did the school proud with their enthusiasm and intelligence. As well as the trophy, pupils also received individual prizes and they are looking forward to taking part in this fantastic event again next year.
