In recent years we have seen a pleasing increase in the numbers of boys and girls living with us during term time. In the last seven years the number of children boarding with us has doubled.

Since I came here I am doing better in class, I have lots of friends and I'm having fun.

Our boarding is thought by many to be the very best and highest quality there is, in the UK and even Europe. For the past eighty years we have successfully cared for children living at the Collegiate.

Since I was first here five years ago the school has improved magnificently; there are endless new facilities such as the new theatre and a huge library.

Year 11

Jason Dixey

I have made many friends over the years and it is like an extended family here.

Year 12

Karyna Balabatko was the Deputy Head Girl of the Faculty and left to go on to University College London to study Economics and Geography:

Without a doubt I grasped every opportunity, be it academic, social or sporting during my time at Queen Ethelburga's. My time here stood me in good stead to go on to an excellent university.

Year 11

Maria Silina

The Equestrian Centre in the school is great. I am able to enjoy my horse riding and I get support from the Equestrian team in all the challenges I face.

Year 13

Sophie Miao

The teachers in the school helped me to achieve high grades in all of my subjects and develop confidence in performing music concerts on stage.

Year 13

Ellie Knox

Every year we choreograph and perform the Gym and Dance Display and each year it gets more and more professional. Hundreds of pupils and teachers get together to organise it and it is such a great experience to be a part of.

Year 11

Nicholas Chu

When I joined QE I settled in very quickly thanks to all the staff, teachers and students who were extremely friendly. Everything seems so much easier when you know people here are remarkably friendly. The facilities here are awesome compared to the schools I have been to before. I have enjoyed every single bit of QE and will always remember, value and appreciate each moment here.

Year 13

Grace Redpath

I first came to QE five years ago and in that time the school has seen me through my GCSEs and now my A-Levels. I like that you feel settled here in your studies and feel at home in the boarding house. I have met some personalities here and created memories that I shall cherish for the rest of my life.

Year 13

Amy Haigs

I like QE because they offer a large variety of subjects for all learning types and also have a wide range of facilities which help me fulfil my potential. They also offer many helpful extra-curricular courses such as Cooking for University which I know will come in handy!

Year 13

Heather Bowmer

I enjoy being at QE because I have been given the opportunity to study courses which I may not have been able to study at other colleges. I have also been given the chance to gain work experience within the school. For example I wish to study to be a primary school teacher and I have been allowed to assist teachers of younger pupils. I have gained great experience from doing this.

Year 13

Megan Lashbrook

Last year I took part in a Sports Leaders initiative where we helped coach and encourage younger members of the school. Not only did it teach me leadership skills but it helped me appreciate what skillsets our own teachers have in order to communicate with and educate our younger pupils.

Year 12

Jake Somerville

You cannot miss the fact that we have got excellent sports facilities at QE and alongside that some of the best coaching and sports teaching.
