At Queen Ethelburga's we offer our students a vast array of opportunities, enabling them to pursue their particular interests and aspirations. We have a unique offering here at QE. We have four individual schools, with their own heads and staff teams, that are small enough to maintain a family atmosphere. This allows staff to know their students thoroughly and successfully guide them through each stage of their formative years.

Good education is about building strong and productive relationships between teachers and students, and amongst students themselves. Our results are testament to this approach, with both the College and Faculty established amongst the top schools in the country.

We are also here to support our students in developing into mature young adults. We wish them to be confident without being arrogant, friendly but not familiar, relaxed but not casual and have the courage to live by sound moral and social values.

We work to ensure that QE parents are kept informed and have the opportunity to be closely involved in the educational journey of their children. It is important to their success and happiness.

It has been hugely rewarding to help build this inclusive and busy community, based on high standards, mutual support and respect. I firmly believe it gives students the confidence to develop wider interests, decide what they enjoy and what fulfils them, and understand what will make them successful in the future.

We are very proud of what has been achieved at QE, particularly over recent years, and would invite you to come and see first-hand what makes QE so special.

Collegiate Principal,
Steven Jandrell
