Entry to QE

The Queen Ethelburga's admissions team will help you through every stage of the application and enrolment process.

Chapter House Early Years to Nursery (from 3 months old): Children can attend Chapter House at any point during the academic year. Students move up to Reception when they are four.

Chapter House Infants and Juniors (Reception to Year 5): Children attend Reception in the September after they are four and can join in subsequent years. In Year 5 students are prepared for transition into King's Magna.  

King’s Magna (Year 6 to Year 9): Students attend King's Magna when they reach Year 6 and can join in subsequent years. In Year 9 students are prepared for transition into the College or the Faculty. 

The College (Year 10 to Year 13): Students can join the College at the beginning of Year 10 or Year 12. They follow a traditional academic route towards higher education, through GCSE and A Level courses.  

The Faculty (Year 10 to Year 13): Students can join the Faculty at the beginning of Year 10 or Year 12. They follow a personalised pathway of academic, creative or vocational courses designed to enable them to progress towards higher education or employment.  

Entrance test and offer acceptance: Once an application has been received applicants will be invited to visit QE to sit an entrance test. This is so that we might see where each student’s talents lie and where they may need support. This assessment is considered in conjunction with a recent report from the student’s current school, and a meeting with a relevant member of academic staff at QE.

If an offer of a place at QE is made to a student, and it is accepted, a registration form and a non-refundable fee of £295 is required to secure the place.
