Welcome to Queen Elizabeth's School


"We believe that when students are happy they will thrive, when they are challenged they will succeed and when they are supported they will achieve."
 
Queen Elizabeth’s is a school where:
  • The highest quality of teaching and learning is provided to all students, meeting individual needs and interests.
  • Extra-curricular activities, including sport, music, drama and student involvement within the community, are seen as keystones for personal development in addition to outstanding academic achievement.
  • The ability to work independently is acquired by all, facilitating exam success and excellent preparation for higher education and the world of work.
  • All aspire to progress to higher education at top universities, to professional qualifications or competitive work positions.
  • The “QE Family” value and broadly Christian ethos, embracing of diversity, are upheld and uniformly applied.

Queen Elizabeth’s School is a learning community based on sustained academic excellence delivering a broad and balanced education that produces confident, well rounded and effective members of our community.

At Queen Elizabeth’s School the spirit of the QE Family is primarily recognised in the learning partnerships that exist between staff and students and between students themselves. We believe that when students are happy they will thrive, when they are challenged they will succeed and when they are supported they will achieve. Above all else, Queen Elizabeth’s School focusses on the individual to ensure that between the ages of 13 and 18 all students mature as learners and individuals. We all want our students to be successful and independent learners but we also recognise that they need support to achieve their full potential.

At QE School we have a focus on student learning outcomes in the broadest sense and particularly seek to offer learning opportunities that will encourage resilience and adaptability that will enable our students to meet the demands of a complex and dynamic society.

About us

"Our outstanding sixth form provides an environment for learning in its widest sense: it enables students to acquire knowledge and skills, and to learn more about themselves as individuals"

Whether you’re moving up from Year 11 at QE or joining us from elsewhere, our sixth form offers a highly distinctive, coeducational experience. Sixth form life involves a great deal more than simply academic study.

Our outstanding sixth form provides an environment for learning in its widest sense: it enables students to acquire knowledge and skills, and to learn more about themselves as individuals.

The essential ingredients of the sixth form at QE can be summarised very briefly: small class sizes, a wide choice of subjects and activities, a superb school environment with a dedicated Sixth Form Centre, a highly dedicated team of teachers and advisers – and a student body characterised by its extraordinary energy, intelligence and friendship.

The QE Family is one of the defining realities of our school

You can choose from nearly 30 ‘A’ Level subjects and our exam results are consistently high. We have highly qualified specialist teachers, enhancing your chances of winning a top university place or securing an excellent job or apprenticeship.

Our teaching staff are one of the great strengths of the school. They are all highly qualified and experienced academics, with in-depth subject knowledge to put at your disposal.

The relationships between staff and students are based on mutual respect and a commitment to fulfilling your potential. In many ways, they define the Sixth Form experience.
