Welcome to Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School
Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School is a highly successful school, with an aspirational ethos which leads to excellent levels of achievement. Staff, students and governors are committed to working together to build a positive learning environment, ensuring continuing success for all students. Our core values include hard work, personal courtesy and a smart appearance. We firmly believe that the aim of always doing one's best is the key to sustained success.
This is an exciting time in any young person’s education, with a wealth of opportunities beginning to open up. We pride ourselves on supporting students to make the most of their time with us and plan for a rewarding future. We want each and every student in our Sixth Form to be successful and well prepared for their next steps. Many of our Year 11 students continue their studies in the Sixth Form and each year we are able to welcome an increasing number of students from other institutions. Students in the Sixth Form study either an A-Level or a vocational programme.
All tutor groups are based at our Sixth Form Centre which is a separate site, approximately 400m from the main site. Many subjects are taught on this site, although subjects requiring specialist facilities are delivered at the main site (Art, Music, Performing Arts, practical science lessons).
Private study periods are spent in a designated area with PCs, the main Library or an available teaching room.

All students are placed in a tutor group with one of our dedicated team of specialist Sixth Form tutors. Their tutorial meetings are designed to be regular review meetings, where we can track their progress and ensure that they feel supported during their time with us. We have a very strong senior student leadership team and a number of students are appointed to positions of responsibility; an important one of which is to promote student welfare and to support other students. The Sixth Form pastoral team and I are very approachable and operate an ‘open door’ policy.
