Welcome to Queensmead School
Welcome to Queensmead School website.
I have worked in secondary education for the past 27 years and joined Queensmead School in September 2000 as Head of the Maths Department. In 2002 I became Assistant Headteacher responsible for Curriculum and Student Tracking and then Deputy Headteacher in 2005. Following our federation with Northwood School I was appointed as Head Teacher in September 2009.
As an Academy for students aged 11 to 18 years we welcome students of all abilities. We set high expectations for all our students and this is demonstrated by the outcomes achieved. Last academic year, 77% of students achieved five or more GCSEs at grades A* to C including Maths and English.
These achievements are only possible with the hard work of students, support of parents and the highly qualified and dedicated staff at Queensmead School.
Queensmead is an 11-18 co-educational academy that is forward looking and dynamic.
At Queensmead, we have a tradition of combining both high expectations for all our students and a curriculum that is appropriate to the needs of the 21st Century.
Our dedicated staff, excellent facilities and commitment to providing equal access to a wide range of educational and cultural experiences creates an environment in which all students are able to discover and develop their full potential.
Our students are here to learn, but education at Queensmead is not limited to the statutory delivery of the National Curriculum. It includes a wide range of extra-curricular activities which incorporates a busy sports and performing arts programme.
Fundamentally we are an ambitious school that is committed to seeking the best for all our students.
There is a wealth of additional information about our school on this website. If you have not yet had the opportunity to do so, we invite you to visit our school where you will be made most welcome.
