Vision, Aims and Ethos

Queen Ethelburga’s is known locally, nationally and internationally as a Collegiate of four schools that promotes the highest standards in all that it does.

Our mission is for all members of the QE community to aspire to the Hill Standard:‘To be the best that I can with the gifts that I have’.

We have a vision to be recognised, consistently, as one of the strongest educational institutions worldwide in all aspects of our endeavour.

Our broadly Christian ethos, welcoming all faiths and none, instils the virtues of mutual respect and support, tolerance and compassion.

We aim to:
• Nurture, educate and equip our students to become considerate, self-assured, independent and resilient adults, respecting and celebrating cultural diversity and ready to take their place in the society in which their future lies.
• Create a safe, happy and caring community in which students take pride in their endeavour and thrive, both mentally and physically.
• Promote the highest academic standards for all, by providing a challenging, stimulating and varied curriculum, which fosters confidence, enthusiasm and curiosity.
• Provide an enrichment programme that complements the academic curriculum, building resilience, responsibility, self-belief and skills, and promotes a sense of fulfilment and achievement in its widest sense.
