School Aims
Queen Elizabeth's High School is an 11-18 co-educational selective grammar school.

These aims were produced after consultation with Governors, staff, parents and students.

  • At Queen Elizabeth's High School, we aim for high standards in all we do.
  • We strive to fulfil the potential of each student. We set out to develop knowledge, understanding, skills and values and we encourage endeavour and achievement of all kinds, academic, sporting, artistic and personal.
  • We aim to achieve this through a carefully planned, broad education in which enthusiastic teachers use a variety of teaching styles in activities inside and outside the classroom.
  • We work hard to involve students and parents in responsibility for learning. Staff set themselves high standards and expect the same from students. All members of the QEHS community are encouraged to contribute to the whole and from that gain a genuine sense of belonging.
  • We aim to maintain a friendly and caring atmosphere, in which students and staff share a mutual respect. We expect responsible behaviour from students; they can expect fair treatment from staff. We intend to keep parents and students fully informed about our policies and achievements and to listen to their views.
  • When they leave Queen Elizabeth's High School, we want students to be well-balanced adults, inspired to continue their learning and able to contribute positively to society. We recognise that school provides a solid and firm foundation upon which students build their lives. As such, we focus on traditional values set in a modern-day context.
