What has impressed me about QE is the support provided for
each individual child, which allows them to reach their full
potential whatever their abilities. Compared to our last
school, things just happen without you needing to ask. By
breaking the Collegiate into smaller schools there seems to
be a far closer relationship between the teachers and their

If I ever think an issue needs addressing I find out that the
staff have got there before me and have already started work
on it. The facilities are unbelievable and I feel very lucky
that my children have been fortunate enough to attend such a
happy, inspiring and caring school as QE.
Michelle Duff, parent of a King's Magna pupil and a Chapter House pupil
What I think makes the school stand out is the pastoral care.
The children and parents have a great sense of belonging.
There is a relaxed approach to parents and nothing is too
much trouble. If we have ever had any issues, we have been
able to see the teacher straight away and the matter or
concern is dealt with in a positive and professional manner.
Our children are very happy at QE and to us that is the best
basis for learning and achieving.
Yvonne Clark, parent of a College student
It is difficult to encapsulate in a few sentences all the
things we like about QE, but there are three key areas.
Firstly, pastoral care, which for us was the most important
consideration. Boarding at QE is like a 'home from home' and
there is a strong family feeling throughout the school.
Secondly, QE has excellent teachers who help students to
achieve their academic goals in a positive learning
environment. Thirdly, the Collegiate has fantastic
facilities and a proactive strategy of reinvesting profits
back into the school for the benefit of students and staff
alike. Whatever your child's academic abilities QE can help
them realise their full potential, they did for mine.
Gail Taylor, parent of a College student
Our daughter has settled in very well and feels very much
part of the QE family. Teachers listen to what she has to
say and she is comfortable in expressing her opinions and
feels a valued individual. The facilities at the school are
very impressive and our daughter has been well supported by
the boarding staff, who make very good surrogate
Reinhard Lang, parent of a Faculty student
We live in Germany and went to look at a selection of
boarding schools in England. Directly after finishing each
visit there was only one consistent opinion issued by the
whole family – 'There is no other school to compare with
Queen Ethelburga's!' QE is an “other level of school” and
plays in its own league. It would be wrong to highlight
something particularly because it is the whole experience
which is different to other schools. Back at home in Germany
we hoped to get the acceptance letter and when it came we
were so pleased. We are happy, thankful and proud that our
son is a student at QE.
