Queen Ethelburga's is an Excellent rated Collegiate across all schools and areas (ISI 2019)
Welcome to the QE Community
Chair of the Collegiate Board
Queen Ethelburga’s Hill Standard is ‘To be the best that I can with the gifts that I have’. As an alumna of the school I continue to ensure that this remains at the centre of every decision we make. We are here to provide every child attending QE with a springboard to their individual successes, whichever pathway they choose.
Our staff work as one team – whether they are directly teaching or supporting students as part of the school and pastoral teams, or as part of our estates team making sure that the campus works as it should – to create the right learning and living environment in which every student can thrive.
Whether you are new to the QE community or are joining us for another great year - welcome! I hope that you have a wonderful year with us.
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 reputation has grown considerably over recent years, but we will not be satisfied until the outcomes for our children, across all areas of their endeavour and aspiration, match those of the world’s best schools.
The best education is about developing individual potential and that is central to our ethos. It is this foundation that makes our four schools different; recognising the uniqueness of each person, we are able to provide a very wide range of opportunities that allows every child to achieve excellence in their own field.
Our schools, with their own heads and staff teams, are small enough to maintain a family atmosphere. This allows staff to know their students thoroughly and successfully guide them through each stage of their formative years.
We are also here to support our students in developing into mature young adults, ready for their future life. Helping them do this is the inclusive and busy QE community - based on high standards, mutual support and respect - of which you are all a valued part.
