Welcome to Whisper the new anonymous service that lets you report a problem you may have at school or at home. Whether it be bulllying, cyber bullying, issues at home or concerns about other fellow students.
This service may be used by students, staff or parents/carers and was created by SWGL (South West Grid for Learning) as part of their online safety services for schools.
To report a problem click on the Whisper icon to be taken to a secure web form.
Sharing things that upset you is not always an easy thing to do. SWGfL Whisper is designed to act as another way you can tell a responsible adult at the school about any issues that you or others might be having. Sometimes that way might be easier than a face to face meeting.
This might include
You or someone else being bullied
If you feel somebody at the school is at risk
If you have a problem that you need to talk about to somebody
Please don’t use bad language as we may not receive your message - the school systems may filter and block things like swear words and stop your message getting to the Whisper account.
In line with government guidelines, due to the current situation regarding Coronavirus, our school is now operating restricted opening in order to support the children of key workers or those who are vulnerable. With effect from Friday 27th March 2020, as part of our wider school family within the Horncastle Education Trust, we welcome the staff and students from Banovallum School to the West Street site as we work together to support each other.
We will continue to closely monitor the situation and updates will be provided on our website as they become available.
Students not attending school should access work by checking O:\School Closure Work via Moodle. There you will either find work or instructions from your teacher on how they will be sending work to you.
In order for us to continue to discharge our safeguarding responsibilities, if your child is due to attend school and you need to report an absence, please telephone 01507 522465 by 08:30 each day.

QEGS Climate Week finished with an excellent day of events led by Philip Hunton, director of “Green up your act” (www.greenupyouracteducation.co.uk). He presented an initial assembly for Years 7 and 8, looking at how crucial trees are to our life and various sustainable and ecological ways of life. Students particularly engaged with alternative eco-friendly housing and the way in which the use of drones was helping to reforest vast terrains quickly and efficiently.
Today it was the turn of Y9 students to experience a carousel of activities about climate change.
Students are pictured here with Angela Meah from CoolDC – a local company that specialises in how to reduce the environmental impact of data centres. Students learnt about what data centres are, how they impact on the environment and what can be done. Groups of students completed tasks where they had to find suitable renewable energy sources for data centres in different parts of the world.
