Overview

Our Hill Standard: To be the best that I can with the gifts that I have, lies at the heart of everything that we try to achieve at QE. Our belief is that there are many ways to be successful in life and our aim is to help each individual find the way that will work best for them. To achieve this, we provide a wide-ranging and varied curriculum, supported by a vast array of extra-curricular activities, to enable each student to gain skills, knowledge and confidence that will take them forward to successful careers and happy lives.

Our academic performance speaks for itself, but it is achieved by determined and motivated students, supported by dedicated members of staff who have their interests at the centre of all that they do. This enables students to lay down very strong foundations to equip them to take advantage of the many opportunities that will present themselves in the years ahead.

Why Choose QE?

Queen Ethelburga's Collegiate comprises four schools and a kindergarten, each with its unique qualities, but all sharing a common purpose of providing students with a first class education and the opportunity to work towards higher education and a successful career. There are strong academic standards across the Foundation and students are encouraged to have high expectations for their achievement and career prospects. There is a very wide curriculum available, which enables students to pursue their individual interests and aspirations across a range of fields, alongside a vast array of extra-curricular opportunities which enable students to widen their experience and gain both skills and confidence. Visitors to QE often remark on the productive and cheerful atmosphere that pervades and the purposefulness of the pupils as they enjoy the considerable opportunities that the environment provides. We welcome you to come and see for yourself what makes QE special and its pupils so successful.
