About the School

Queen Elizabeth’s High School our crest clearly indicates, what the school proudly celebrates and promotes: Tradition, Achievement, and Opportunity.

These core values revolve around ensuring all students are well cared for, academically challenged and afforded access to a broad range of fulfilling and enriching co-curricular activities. As a result, students at Queen Elizabeth’s High School feel safe, flourish within an environment of academic rigour, and develop interests and skills which will go on to serve them well throughout their lives.

On a day-to-day basis staff promote these values by applying their Queen Elizabeth’s High School Learner Standards:

Behaviour for Learning Standard

To secure excellent academic outcomes, there must first be a sense of good order, trust and mutual respect across the school community. With clear expectations around Behaviour for Learning, students develop an understanding of how their behaviour affects both their own progress and that of others. To behave in a manner which allows everyone to learn and fulfil their potential is fundamental to securing success and building confidence. At Queen Elizabeth’s High School, students are therefore expected to maintain high standards of behaviour at all times.

Learning to Learn Standard

When a student appreciates learning is a skill which may be honed, refined and developed over time they make better progress and secure enhanced outcomes. Therefore, at Queen Elizabeth’s High School
students are actively encouraged to grow as reflective learners whilst working in partnership with highly skilled and committed staff within a curriculum designed to stretch and challenge. By engaging with Learning to Learn, students are empowered to act proactively upon advice, guidance and constructive criticism. Consequently, Queen Elizabeth’s High School students stand out as confident, creative and resourceful learners with a prized skill-set for ongoing studies.

Leadership for Learning Standard

Queen Elizabeth’s High School is unique in just how integrated students from and between different year groups are. This is in no small part thanks to the numerous leadership opportunities afforded to all students through the school’s House system, through subject ambassadorship and the highly valued support associated with embedded peer-to-peer mentoring and student-led coaching approaches. On the ground the school sees Leadership for Learning work for both younger students who grow as leaders through the roles they take on, and also for older students who in turn inspire as empathetic, engaging and motivating leaders themselves.

Queen Elizabeth’s High School is a special place in which to learn and grow. There is a real sense of purpose and a high degree of collegiality amongst students and staff in this school. Consequently, Queen Elizabeth’s High School continues to thrive and blossom as they look to the future with confidence, a true sense of purpose and a determination to succeed at the highest levels.
