Virtual Visit Hub
Welcome to the QE Virtual Visit Hub. We know how important it is for you to find out as much as possible about your future school and community and our Virtual Visit Hub will give you a chance to have a glimpse before you can come and see us in person.
The presentations and short films on this page have been prepared by our staff and students, to introduce our approach to education with you as we support our students to achieve their aspirations; through the quality of teaching delivered, extensive extra-curricular opportunities offered, and strong pastoral care provided here at QE.
**To note: if you are viewing this webpage on a handheld device, it may need to be 'landscape' for you to see all the presentation options clearly.

We welcome students wishing to Board from Year 3 to Year 13. At the heart of boarding at QE, are three central characteristics; opportunity, individuality and a caring community. Being a boarder at QE gives our students opportunities beyond the ordinary. Find our more in our video below:
Trips and Activities
We aim to provide a holistic education which supports students to develop their knowledge, skills and experience beyond the classroom.
We have a dedicated Enrichment Team, who ensure that all our students can benefit from the extensive programme of opportunities we provide. Students discuss participation alongside their academic progress with their tutors, to ensure that they are individually tailored to as they progress through each year at QE.
Nestled in the breath-taking North Yorkshire countryside, our campus sits between three cosmopolitan centres; historic York, the spa town of Harrogate and Leeds, widely considered Yorkshire's capital city, with a cultural, shopping and entertainment offer to match.
