The Faculty is one of our two Senior Schools, welcoming students from Years 10 to 13. Students in the Faculty follow a varied and bespoke programme of learning which provides a high-quality education. The flexibility of the curriculum allows students to follow an academic route, more creative and vocational options, or a combination of both.
"The Faculty caters for students with a wide variety of talents and abilities, and helps them to achieve highly in a range of courses. We recognise and celebrate students’ successes in their academic and vocational courses, their creative, artistic and musical skills, and their sporting achievements. Our varied, interesting and individual programmes of study ensure that all students are supported to fulfil their diverse ambitions and prepare them for higher education and employment."
Head of the Faculty, Erica Papaglimis

What our students and parents say:
"The Faculty has improved me as a person, and has allowed me to achieve more than I could have ever thought in all different aspects of both school, and everyday life. The lessons taught inside and outside the classroom shape students to flourish and succeed in later life."
Year 10 Student
"I spent two lovely years in The Faculty at QE and now I am reading economics at the University of Cambridge. Looking back I am grateful for all the support I had. All my teachers taught me well and supported me at any time. I would recommend this school to anyone."
Old Ethelburgian, Class of 2019
"Our daughter has been so well supported in her time at The Faculty at QE and as a result she has achieved extremely pleasing grades in her GCSEs, allowing her to pursue all the A Levels she wanted to study. The Faculty really has been a wonderful place for our daughter to grow and learn, and we are very grateful for all that the school offers."
